Is it possible for 2 1130AG in Autonomous mode to support fast layer 2 roaming ?
My clients are a mix of cisco ccx compatible and non cisco clients.
(Authentication could be either Open or WPA etc)
If so, does 1 AP have to acts as a WDS ?
I came across docs that say I need a WLSM and that an AP acting as a WDS would not work..
If I do not use WDS and simply have 2 AP's with the same SSID :-
If I only use Open Authenication, then would the roam be a bit faster ?
Would the AP's update the MAC tables of the upstream switches when a client changes AP's ?
Oh, I see now. You absolutely get L2 roaming out of the box. It's all part of the 802.11 protocol - the client will inform the current AP that he is leaving, which AP he's going to, and then he'll roam. With Open or PSK authentication, this will be nearly seamless to the client.
Cisco Fast Secure Roaming is an entirely different subject. In the above case, if the client is using PEAP, he'll need to the reauthenticate to the RADIUS server every time he roams to a new AP. Cisco FSR caches the credentials in the WDS AP for fast authentication, which takes the RADIUS server out of the process. This greatly speeds up a roam for EAP users, and it's especially notable (and necessary) for wireless IP phone users.
Again, I hope that helps!
