Coovaap Captive Portal Firmware. Problems with external Radius Server

Hi hope someone can help.

i have configured my own freeradius server using daloradius to manage accounts. (radtest works fine)

and i have flashed a wrt54gl successfully with coovap firmware.

now im stuck

iv tried using the coovaap internal hotspot and set the radius settings to my radius server. but it will only authenticate local users, if i try to login with any username not in the coovaap local users, i get a blank page (after some time)

even tried hotspotlogin.cgi on a webserver and configured the chilli uam settings, again i get a login page but it times out to a blank page after submitting user details.

can someone shed some light on getting coovaap to authenticate against my radius server.

or any other way i can get this working.

external radius authentication was not working
im blaming a dodgy netcomm router.

any ideas how to configure the freeradius client.conf to accept requests from dynamic ip's?
