Why are you trying to setup FreeRADIUS? I mean it's not at a postfix/cyrus level of obtuseness, but it's not exactly suitable for beginners. It requires too much domain knowledge, and general competence in a bunch of different diciplines to be used effectively.

Integrating with an LDAP directory is typically not something a home user who just wants to setup a dd-wrt AP and experiment with WPA2-Enterprise would do.

If this is for a client are you sure you wouldn't be more comfortable using NPS, IAS, ACS? There are many commercial alternatives available. 

If you're a junior system administrator/intern then you should probably request a different project.

If you're determined to continue, and the config snippet below doesn't help. Then I would strongly advise downloading FreeRADIUS 3.0.0 and reading over the LDAP code. It's much simpler and easier to understand than the code in 2.1.x.

The error message you see is ocurring in the main code body however, so try greping through the code for the log message you're receiving, and see what possible conditions in the code could cause it.

Yeah... the people on this list who have been around a while get tired of repeating the same crap over and over again.

authorize {
	if (ok && User-Password) {
		update control {

authenticate {
	Auth-Type LDAP {
