Did you try to run wifidog in debug mode ?

Log in with SSH to your WRT, stop wifidog (if it's running) and type :
wifidog -f -d 7

You will see what wifidog does and may be help you se wath goes wrong.

The FAQ can also be helpfull for debugging :

For testing, you can use the default node of ISF and see if you WRT (and
wifidog) are working correctly.

I don't know if I really understand what you are saying, but without PHP5
you will not be able to run auth-server.

The Auth-Server installation is a pain in the ass for many people. I'm
currently working on a PHP script for easyer installation. I'm trying to
build a "full proof" installation process and configuration setup. I can't
tell you when it will be released, but it will certainly help a lot of
people doing a smooth install.
