My questions stem from Cisco's literature (and almost all other wireless AP manufacturers') where Load Balancing by the AP is mentioned. By placing 2 or 3 APs in the same cell on different channels, the theory is that the beacons/advertisements from the APs will help the client cards choose which AP to use based on available resources, load on the AP, etc. Our environment uses no LEAP, No WEP, and a mixture of client cards that are all Wi-Fi 802.11b, but from various manufacturers. Is this load balancing operation supposed to work with all 802.11b client cards, or just Aironet 340/350 cards? We have areas where we expect high concentration of users and are looking to make use of load balancing at the AP, but their is very little info available on it past bullet statements in sales literature by any maker.
