Setting up roaming with 1300ag access points

Answered Question
Sep 19th, 2010

hi,

i have been give two 1300ag access point to configure

i have been asked to make sure that clients can move between APs without disconnecting from network (is roaming the right term?)

i was told that i need to set identical SSID and different channels on both APs

i doesn't seem to be working.

what else needs to be configured?

thanks for any help

The APs must me locayed in such a way that.. you should be able to detect the wireless signal between the APs... there should not be a coverage GAP between the APs..

Exam..

>> Range coverage should not be like below..

                           AP1                                                              AP2

<----------------------------------------------->                 <-------------------------------------------------------->

                                                   <--------------->

                                                  no signal overlap

>> Range coverage should be like this..

                  AP1

<----------------------------------------------->                 AP2

                                       <-------------------------------------------------------->

                                        <---------->

                                      signal overlap

this can be done by installing the AP on the roof and then roaming around. or even dont by any Cisco ACU or ADU site survey software.

configure WPA-PSK and use the same key on both the AP if the design is for personel mode.. make sure the coverage of the AP overlaps by min 20%
