Is there any way to limit captive portal user base on the MAC address of the computer? what I mean is, I want to eliminate the user for sharing their accounts to others. What I had right now is preventing them for multiple con current used.

to configure 'limit to 1 session' for captive portal logins.
This should accomplish the prevention of sharing of user credentials on
the guest/captive portal network that you seem to be after.

There is a radius feature called "Simultaneous-Use" where the user can be prevented from logging into more than one computer at a time. Some radius servers like freeradius and Radiator support this (Microsoft does not). There is also a feature in active directory where you can tie a user account to a mac address here: http://blogs.technet.com/nap/archive/2006/09/08/454705.aspx
What I'm not sure that you can do is to dynamically tie a MAC address to a user upon login.
Maybe the community can chime in on any off-the-shelf or custom solutions to solve your use case.
