I have setup a simple roaming testbed consisting of two APs connected via DS to a radius server. When I issue the "FT_DS" command, sometime roaming works and after a while I get following error:
sme: association request to the driver failed

Then my entire connection doesn't respond. Even ping to gateway stops working.

Is this MAC80211 issue?

Is there any other driver I could use for my testing.
