Usually, this is configured in the RADIUS authentication server.
Authenticator (e.g., hostapd) is supposed to follow the Session-Timeout
attribute from Access-Accept. If the RADIUS server does not include this
attribute, you could change the authenticator to hardcode a timeout
(e.g., eap_reauth_period in hostapd.conf).
