Cheap way of doing dynamic vlans and wired 802.1x


I'm looking for a way to do cheap wired (wireless if possible as well) 802.1x network access control. I don't have access to a switch (like the hp 2600 series) that does wired 802.1x NAC and dynamic vlan assignment on ports. I know that openwrt/dd-rt do wireless 802.1x and MAY do dynamic vlan assignments however, I haven't seen any true confirmation on this ability on either the wired or wireless interfaces.

Can anyone recommend a cheap switch/router that has this functionality?

Take a look at this:, I haven't used it myself, but it looks interesting.
