Hi Alain,

Try this out;

Q. How do I configure my AP acting as WGB to dynamically switch between parent access points based on signal reception?

A. Use this command in order to configure the Workgroup Bridge as a mobile station:

ap(config)#mobile station

When you enable this setting, the Workgroup Bridge scans for a new parent association when it encounters a poor Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI), excessive radio interference, or a high frame-loss percentage. With the use of these criteria, a Workgroup Bridge configured as a mobile station searches for a new parent association and roams to a new parent before it loses its current association. When the mobile station setting is disabled, the default setting, the Workgroup Bridge does not search for a new association until it loses its current association.

From this good doc;

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/access_point/12.3_7_JA/configuration/guide/s37hot.html#wp1041626

Hope this helps!

Rob
