Access Point log message: station [host MAC address] roamed

Resolution

This message indicates that your client has left the access point coverage area and has reassociated to a different access point.

If you wish to suppress this message, you can set the access point's Client Stations inactivity timer to zero.  See  Association Table Advanced Page.

In order to control the roaming clients, it is advantageous to conduct a site survey by an RF engineer.It is also very helpful for all APs in a wireless lan be kept to a certain transmit level. Clients will roam under the conditions of being out of a cell range and/or not receiving/sending any beacon frames from it's associated AP.  Rule of thumb is to have a 15-20% overlap of radio cell when setting up AP's for roaming clients.
