I know that the AP1100 can work in repeater mode, so to extend coverage where cable can't be laied. What i really think would be great is to make the AP1100 work in repeater mode trought the wired interface without wasting radio bandwith !!
I'm not clear on the original post, but to the question about roaming between APs, you can do this. A couple of points for consideration include having sufficient overlapping coverage by the APs. 15% overlap is considered sufficiet for the hand-off between APs. Each AP will also need to be on the same subnet. In a campus environment, this may mean configuring VLANs across your switches to support the APs being in the same subnet.
All of that was already done. Our entire network is CISCO based. We have done the Site Survey and configured a new VLAN on the campus to suporte the subnet on wich the AP's relly.
The AP's have 2 VLAN's, one for management and other for generall traffic.
We have draw some conclusions and i think that the main problem, is that if i'm connected to AP#1 and move to AP#2, the mac from my wirelless card stays assigned to the switch on wich AP#1 is connected. I've tried to set the ARP TIMEOUT option on our router to a lower value (5 secs) but all i got was a general slow down on the network (as espected) but the roaming is still taking to long.
By the way, we have also a Solaris 8 box giving out DHCP service to clientes.
Everytime a client roams, it is given a diferent ip address.
I've thought on configuring mobile ip. Maybe this will help ?
Finally, sorry for the long message, and thanks again for your time.
Are you referring to the APs being configured with different VLANs or the switch port the APs are connected to as having seperate VLANs.
The fact your DHCP server is handing out different IP addresses suggests that your APs are in different subnets. In order for the traffic to be passed along between APs requires the APs be on the same subnet (created using VLANs on the switch).
