Roaming and Mac-Filter for Autonomous APs - Stability Question
We would like to put Mac Address Filters for some APs on the same floor. As far as the roaming characterics, roaming is decided by the client which it chooses the best AP with signal quality.
If the Client tries to roam to an AP with Mac Address Filter applied, does it somehow understand (receive some signal or packet from the AP), so that it will prefere the next best AP, or continously try to associate to same AP unsuccessfully?
For agressive load balancing the Controller may provide the client an honor code 17 signal wrt to 802.11, which means busy signal and the Client understands it and associates to another AP. I think there is no way to send this code for Autonomous APs.
Also if the client is moving around (a tablet or barcode reader) does it use this information (if there is) to decide to which AP to roam?
If the same scenario is tested for Lightweight APs with Controller can we get a more stable environment for this scenario?
Re: Roaming and Mac-Filter for Autonomous APs - Stability Questi
Bottom line is that the client will decide. It's hard to enable features in hopes that the client roams to a specific ap. client load balancing doesn't work well since many client do not support code 17. It's best to have a good site survey done so roaming is not an issue.
