  If FreeRADIUS sends an Access-Accept, and the user isn't allowed on
the network... blame the AP.  Read the vendor's AP documentation to see
what it needs in an Access-Accept.

  And I highly doubt that this flag is required for RADIUS
authentication to work.  Many other people run the same hardware, and
don't have these issues.
