its a very very special router that can receive and process and forward/proxy
RADIUS traffic. most routers are the originator of RADIUS traffic, not recipients
of it.

all you need is to add your router IP address to the RADIUS server as a client
and then start throwing tests from it. if the router has a RADIUS test function
(via command line or GUI) then use it to see the RADIUS auth requests come through..
otherwise you'll have to have real clients connecting to it...
