WDS question.

How long does the client's credential keep in WDS AP?

and is there any method to not authentication through WDS AP?

I'd like to using only Radio Mangement for WDS without Fast Roaming.

Sometimes many client's authentication request make jamming by WDS AP's auth-cache.


Re: WDS question.

Maintaining client credentials dpends on the type of client. There is a keep alive between AP and the client, which depends on AP configuration and type of the client.I have tested it for a cisco client. If it is a Cisco client, AP detects the client is away pretty quickly and removes from its association list. Once that happens, the client will stay in WDS's cache list, in detached state, for about 10 minutes. I am not sure about other clients.

Re: WDS question.



Did you manage to configure an WDS and other APs in the same subnet just to use Radio Management without any authentication? I don't need fast roaming. Do I still need any Radius server? Could I just use one WDS, some infrastuctured APs and WLSE to use Radio management??

Thx in advance for info

Best regards,
