I'm more of an RuckusWireless specialist than an freeRADIUS, but I'll try
to help.

The ZD has a posibility of PAP or CHAP. Which Fw are you using?

The ZD and APs usualy work that if you have a trunk you also need a native
(untagged network) for them to communicate. You can also use a management
VLAN to manage all the devices. And it is also possible to use DHCP Option
43 for dicovery and such.
