I just loaded up the new 1.21 M0n0wall to my box. RADIUS functionality 
has improved over the previous release. Occasionally I still get the 
problem with the AUTH timed out but that seems to be due to wireless 
reception. If my wireless client was too far from the box then I 
sometimes I have to do authenticate myself twice.
