Wireless AP, Roaming, Channels
Posted on 2007-10-15
I have 3 wireless access points all setup with the same ssid to allow for roaming (802.11g). The channel is set to auto on the access points. I am having some problems where the clients (all using Cisco wireless cards) are temporarily disconnecting and reconnecting to different wireless access points depending on signal strength and what the card thinks is the best connection at the time. Problem is these clients are running Oracle clients, and the Oracle clients are erroring out every time the workstations switch to a different access point. One thing I was going to try was to force all of the access points to use the same channel, but I am not sure if this is the best approach when using the same ssid's for multiple access points (roaming) or must they all use different channels?
