Something I am not really clear on... what does IAPP really do for you? 
I can roam just fine between access points now without any inter-AP 
communication.

Does it do cool stuff like transfer authentication credentials between 
access points so clients can roam without re-authenicating when your 
using something like 802.1x with PEAP or TTLS?
