Forcing handover

Hi,

As a testcase, I would like to examine the hanoff procedure between access
points. I managed to configure 2 APs with HostAP and I'm now looking for a
way to force a handover between APs.

Can I use iwconfig wlan0 txpower on the APs and hope that the MN will
notice the drop in quality? I already tried iwpriv wlan0 maccmd 4, but
this replied " no private ioctls"

I'm using Linksys WPC11 card, with secondary firmware 1.4.9 in ram.

If anyone has experience with this manner, I would appreciate it if you
shared it.

Thanks in advance,

Peter
