Oh okay... Well is there another authentification mode to use for users 
? I'll explain what's my goal.

Previously, i used a hotspot system named Coovachilli and it was 
installed on a computer with freeradius. My goal was to let the access 
points configuration as open to do the authentification process via the 
radius server but like that i can't get the location of users because 
they're connected on the same NAS who is the radius server (when i have 
added acess points as clients in clients.conf, it doesn't work because 
the authentification isn't doing on them, it plays the bridge role.

AP ----|
AP ----| -------eth1- Coova+Radius Server -eth0----- |Router| --------

So, instead of that,  i wanted to configure on the access points the 
WPA2 enterprise security and with that, i can add them in the 
clients.conf file and it worked. And i can use daloradius to configure 
accounting and get informations from access points. But the problem is 
that i need the right EAP authentification without certificate and the 
only one i saw was the EAP-MD5...
What i want is :
- location of users connected (on which access points they are connected)
- a connection using an username and password only

If someone has an idea to resolve that, my head hurts, i'm quite lost 
right now... :(

Thank you
