association table timeout defaults

Hi,

Can someone explain why the defaultf timeouts for devices in the association tables seem to be so long (to me anyway)? Or point me to docs that explain why these are set this way.....I've not had much luck looking myself.

....thanks in advance...........Jamie

Re: association table timeout defaults

I found this infomation on the URL below. I hope this helps. "These settings determine the number of seconds the access point continues to track an inactive device depending on its class. A setting of zero tells the access point to track a device indefinitely no matter how long it is inactive. A setting of 300 equals 5 minutes; 1800 equals 30 minutes; 28800 equals 8 hours".

Re: association table timeout defaults

Hi,

Yes........I read those docs too. However, they don't explain why, eg. I would want to track a client for half an hour after they've left the BSS.......why wouldn't the default be....say.....5 minutes?

.....thanks for the reply...........J
