Could you explain a little more what you mean here?

Do you mean limits on concurrent connections from the same user? Or limits on the number of associations to an WPA2/Enterprise 802.1X SSID?

As Nick mentioned, this is non-trivial and is best done at the authentication server. We are looking at enhancing our own embedded RADIUS service to give you this control in a future release, but for now you will need third-party software to accomplish this.

My guess is that Diego is looking for functionality similar to the PPSK's ability to limit concurrent connections from the same user - which you cannot easily do.
