871-w (wireless router) compatability with 1131 AP

We have a situation (new setup) where clients can associate to either the 871-w or the 1131 w/open authentication and reach Internet. Users can also roam (according to the 1131 console) to the 871-w and continue to work. Users cannot roam back to the 1131 from an association on the 871-w, although the 1131 shows them as associated, so does the 871-w and their traffic goes no where. Are these two devices compatable>?

Topology: 871-w with wireless enabled and 1131 trunked thru the 871-w's switch port.

Hi,

there is no defined standard for roaming is not so when you are marginal coverage you can find that the client doesn't associate properly.

Are you using well-separated channels?

You may need to reduce power, or configure a proper antenna so that the zone of your interest has a bigger difference is signal

strength.

Please send further questions to wireless forum where you can get better answers.
