Please help me to set-up radius client on openwrt

For authenticating wifi users, hostapd (wpad) has RADIUS client built in. You need to switch to the full version of wpad not mini or basic though.

can you tell me the steps ?

opkg update
opkg remove wpad-mini (or wpad-basic)
opkg install wpad

Then configure your AP as WPA Enterprise. Options are explained here:

Hey,
I would join the question.

I want to authenticate my wireless clients using radius by mac address only, e.g. send mac as username.

Like dd-wrt Wireless → Wireless Security -> Radius (by specifying radius server and mac format)
Like routeros Security profile -> radius -> Mac Authentication.

Mac filter option support only static list.

May be i'm missing some package or setting?
