Roaming

Hi Aall


I have new set up of 128 APs and 2*6000 series controller.Cleints are authenticating by a external RADIUS server

I have a problem with roaming. I appear to be unable to roam
between APs throughout the floor. As I walked out of coverage of my initial
AP and moved further down the floor, my connection to the SSID
appeared to stay stable, but I lost my connectivity to the internet.

I'm also seeing a large number of reauthentication requests from my desk,
which I believe is related to roam attempts. Is the SSID
supposed to allow roaming and authentication handoff between APs? If so, I
would like some assistance with this issue. If not, I believe this is
something I needed.

The first thing I would attempt is to upgrade the NIC card drivers on the client. The AP is supposed to handle roaming automatically.

Question: Are the APs all terminating on the same controller?

What kind of roaming?

When roaming from AP to AP, is it on the same controller?
Are APs on the same controller configured with the same VLAN?
Are APs on different controllers configured with the same VLAN?

Answers to these questions will help identify what's missing. Of the top of my head, I'm curious whether you have configured Mobile IP for inter-controller roaming.
