You may want to change the

You may want to change the "User Idle Timeout" to 900 seconds (it is located in the Controller tab in the General section.  I think that 900 seconds (15min) is the max for this setting and it has a default of 300 seconds.  This will keep the clients in the WLC database longer when they leave.

If this is a very large network you may want to make sure you are not near the client limits of the WLC before you make this change.

We try the session timeout

We try the session timeout limits but this will not solve this issue permanently.

One thing we cannot keep the sessions when user is roaming(going out/coming in of wireless network)

HI Sajad,You must adjust Idle

HI Sajad,

You must adjust Idle timeout as well as session timeout but max 24 hours and then he must reauthenticate, there is no other option in webauth.

Clients with guest access

Clients with guest access that have had successful web authentication are allowed to sleep and wake up without having to go through another authentication process through the login page. You can configure the duration for which the sleeping clients are to be remembered for before reauthentication becomes necessary. The valid range is 1 hour to 720 hours (30 days), with the default being 12 hours. You can configure the duration on a WLAN and on a user group policy that is mapped to the WLAN. The sleeping timer becomes effective after the idle timeout. If the client timeout is lesser than the time configured on the sleeping timer of the WLAN, then the lifetime of the client is used as the sleeping time.
