Huh.. LEAP should not really be used for number of reasons (not secure, not
a compliant EAP method)..

Does anyone have experience getting LEAP to work with DD-WRT and FreeRadius?

Assuming DD-WRT uses hostapd as the authenticator, it does not support
LEAP. The LEAP design is a horrible hack that is not compliant with EAP (it
looks more like two EAP exchanges in a single one and requires hacks in AS,
AP/NAS, and supplicant to work). I have not seen any reason to add support
for that into hostapd.
