LEAP is special.. And not in the good way. It is not compliant to the
EAP specification and requires special authenticator behavior, which,
I'd assume, your NAS did not support.

Assuming you are talking about EAP-FAST here, it would likely be easier
to use hostapd as the RADIUS authentication server than trying to make
FreeRADIUS use this through the eap2 module.
