Do you mean that all the client entries in RADIUS database are using the
same shared key? If yes, you could change hostapd_radius_acl_query()
function in hostapd/ieee802_11_auth.c to use the shared key in
radius_msg_add_attr_user_password() call. In other words, you would need
to replace "buf, strlen(buf)" part in the arguments with "shared key",
10 (or, to make it more cleanly, make this a new configuration option
for hostapd.conf and if not set, use the default of using the MAC
address as the User-Password).
