RADIUS only comes into play when the auth *is being attempted*. So if
you want to prevent that, you indeed need to look at the AP or supplicant.

I guess it's possible on some APs to "ban" a MAC address after a number
of failures. However
- that's off-topic for this list
- you didn't care enough to tell us which Access Points you are working with

So don't expect useful answers.
