  That should work.

  The only communication between the WiFi router and FreeRADIUS is via RADIUS.  If you want to let the user on the network, the user will have to re-authenticate.

  i.e. after the app inserts the MAC address into the DB, it should kick the user off of the network.  The user will then come back on the network, re-authenticate, and the WiFi router will do RADIUS, and the user will be let on the network.
