I back up every working step and when I fix something, I revert to the previous copy and make only the required changes, and back up again. I have an OpenWRT router authenticating against my FreeRadius server with no issues what so ever.

  Try looking at ALL of the traffic.  Use a test PC.  Compare the traffic PC <-> AP to the traffic AP <-> RADIUS.  Is the Access-Challenge getting converted to an EAP packet back to the PC?

  i.e. Find out WHERE the problem is located.  Just poking the AP / RADIUS config won't help.  You have to follow each packet through the network, and see exactly where it goes wrong.  And which piece of the network goes wrong.
