  What do you mean by "application of more than one group"?

  I explained how the "users" file works.  I pointed you to documentation.  If you put more than one DEFAULT in, it will only match the first one.  Unless you follow the documentation.

  So you want users with bad passwords to be put into a different VLAN?

  The debug log you attached showed a *successful* authentication.

  See the FAQ for "it doesn't work"

  Again, you're asking questions which are poorly phrased, and don't contain enough information for me to help you.

  We never ask for the output from radclient.  We ALWAYS ask for the output of the server.

  Again... please follow instructions.  When you don't follow instructions, you don't get the problem fixed.

  If only I understood what you were doing, and what *exactly* was going wrong, and what you expected to happen.

  I already asked that, and your response here was still fairly vague.  "I tried stuff, and it didn't work".

  Ask a bad question, get a bad answer.

  Ask a good question, get a good answer.

  It's up to you.
