  You can generally authenticate by MAC, but not by IP.  RADIUS is about network access.  And the device doesn't have an IP until after it's been given network access.

  Look at the debug output: radiusd -X.

  Then, see which attributes are in the input packet.  Those attributes are the ones that you can use for authorization / authentication checks.
