What happens if Local Mode LAP lost connection to Controller?

Hey,

I wonder what happens to the wireless client and LAP running in local mode if connection to wireless lan controller is down OR the controller itself is down? I do not think LAP will reboot by itself but will wireless client lost wifi connection and internet connection via the LAP?

H-REAP/FlexConnect is different and it can keep clients connected depending on authentication methods. This will explain it better:

AP's in local mode that looses connectivity to the WLC will drop any clients associated to that AP.

What about H-REAP mode? Will the client keep connection and authenticaiton if not rebooting the LAP?
