Many Thanks, Jouni, the VS2005 Release works very well!<br><br>I'd like to open a thread on Roaming. How do I do that?<br><br>Or I'll state it here as well:<br><br>I'm very interested in the ability to <font size="4">ROAM
</font>. I must understand the technical aspects better and I'm gathering info on it now (any advice / comments you might like to share will be warmly welcomed, Jouni).<br><br>I see the term "roaming" about 3 times in the wpa_supplicant literature; either in the list of features or the todo list. And I'm not really sure whether this great product presently can handle a roaming wifi unit as is today or if it needs enhancement or if roaming is out of the scope of the product.
<br><br>Could you (or another expert) clear this up for me?<br><br>Scenario: a user uses a wifi client app based upon wpa_supplicant (7-22-2006) to make the initial connection and authenticate to a network. That network has many SSIDs covering a geographic area. Every SSID has the same name, but of course a unique MAC address. the User then roams. As they move the signal strength of the original SSID they connected to weakens in comparison to the other SSIDs of the network.
<br><br>In my view the strongest signal should (always) be used by the users wifi. So some sort of hand-off must take place. <br><br>How would this take place? Must there be a SSID disconnect and then re-connect (to that SSID with the best signal -that the wifi client software peforms?
<br><br>Or is it the networks that handles all of this??<br><br><br>thanks so much and hope you enjoy the question,<br><br>george<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 7/25/06, <b class="gmail_sendername">Jouni Malinen
