Hi all

I am using 2 ap’s. They are connected with wds link. Clients can connect to any of them and talk to clients on any side (wirelessly). The problem is when a client roams to a different ap, the association list shows it is connected on the old ap and new one, that prevent that client from talking with the network. If I disconnect the wifi card from that client, all is ok. If I reboot the old ap, also, all is ok. Is there a way to force a disassociation frame from client to ap when it roams? It seems that when disconnecting from the network, the ap knows that, but when roaming to other ap’s it does not.

Try setting the lease time real short. So when the lease expires it will reset.

It's just a work around.
