Honestly, they're no worse or better than any other NAS I've used; most 
vendor equipment is fairly crappy in one fashion or another.

I would bet the OP is running into either radio-side issues e.g. 
"blacklist bad hosts for X seconds" or connectivity between the NAS and 
radius server.

But the general point is: yes, he must have some sort of local problem, 
because loads of people use Cisco WLC and FreeRADIUS successfully. 
There's no special trick - just set it up right and it goes.
