Is this really the output with the configuration file you sent? The
configuration file needs to have driver=prism54 line in it and that was
not present in what you sent.. In addition, I don't think non-WPA modes
have received much, if any, testing, so they may not work. In addition,
your configuration file did not really match with the comment about
FreeRADIUS, since RADIUS was not being used..
