When having 2 access points on a LAN what happens when you walk around with a wireless client and it can communicate with both devices. Does it choose which one to communicate with and stay with that one?
Also what happens once you go out of rang on one access point and into the rang of another? Does the connection drop? It is seamless?
I setup 2 wireless access points, one of them connected to the LAN, and the other just an RF repeater, and the wireless NIC switched from one access point to the other without dropping the connection. I am using the 350 series, and have had no problems with them. I am sure that the NIC uses the recieve signal level and signal quality to determine which access point to use.
I have never tried this so the following is assumptions based on what I have been led to believe. The ap's use cdp to "talk" to each other and these are broacast out. So I would assume in a bridged enviroment that it would work fine. But in a separate subnet I would assume that the aps could not talk to each other and would not have a smooth handoff. But if you lost one ap your card would find the new ap and reassociate (assuming ssids, wep, etc) is set to work on new ap.
