RADIUS could be very useful to you *if* your Access Points are capable of 
using it.

I did some exploratory work using FreeRADIUS with smbldap for implementing 
"WPA Enterprise" security and I put up a "Howto":

There is a link to a tarball with all the modified files mentioned in this 
document:

You continue usint LDAP for Linux authentication, RADIUS is used only as a 
means of re-using the same (LDAP) credential store with your Wifi Access 
Points.
