    I am unclear on some specifics of wrt-radauth, perhaps someone could clarify for me :-

    I understand the client device MAC can go to the RADIUS server as a username in differnet formats for example aabbcc-ddeeff

    What is the corresponding password format to input into the RADIUS server ? the same thing again, or something else for example AA-BB-CC-DD-EE-FF. What about lower case and upper case.

    What are the settings

    Password Format
    Shared Key / MAC

    - do these affect the password format ? if I go for Shared Key instead of MAC where does the Shared key get input ?

    RADIUS Shared Secret - is this the shared secret just to access the RADIUS server to check er the username / password credentials ?

    Thanks for any pointers, web searching drew a blank.

    some radius servers take the mac adress as password instead of the shared key. normally you must select shared key here

    and the shared key is the shared key to access the radius server. but this is really a common setting in any radius authenticator
