If your AP supports radius set radius secret and IP address there.
Though I am not very happy with freeradius I am using this a home.
radiator also supports this.

freeradius user file entry with an orinoco ap may simply look like

# someone's MAC
001234-56789a           Auth-Type := Accept

There is at least one paper around that describes how to set things
up. I think you might find links on freeradius or radiator homepages.
Thay also describe configuration with Windows clients if I remember
