I´m looking for a radius Server for my customers.

I use FreeRADIUS and MikroTik together. Great team, if you ask me.

The FreeRADIUS setup is standard. Needs no special tweeking for MikroTik. Insure you add the MikroTik box info to your clients.conf file.

The setup in MikroTik is simple. Once you get the hotspot set up and working:
/radius add service=hotspot secret=radiussecret
/ip hotspot profile set X use-radius=yes
Change the and radiussecret to your FreeRADIUS server IP and radius secret.
Change the X to the hotspot profile number.

I use the Freeradius and MT setup too with Mysql database backend. Works very well. You have to check the wiki, there is a complet solution for setup.
My recomendation is that always use a good pc for freeradius and use UPS, because the database is sometimes broken on mysql after power failure.
