I have server 2003 ent edition. Right now I have around four 3com 8760 dual radio 11a/b/g wireless nodes, which does the job of connecting wireless laptops in our domain to the network. The simple configuration right now is as follows:
-Each wireless node is installed at different locations of the bulding.
-Each wireless node is on a different radio channel.
-Each wireless node is able to provide IP addresses (taken from DHCP server) to the wireless laptops (i.e each wirless node is independent)
-Each wireless node has WDS settings which has options, Bridge Role as AP, Bridge, Repeater, Root bridge. All nodes are at AP (selection).
-Spanning Tree protocol setting is Disabled on all the wireless nodes (Not sure if enabling it will make any difference)
-Using WPA/PSK as the authentication method in Each wireless node.
WHen a user switches locations (i.e from one location of a wireless node to another location of wireless node) the re connection of the new wireless node and the laptop takes longer time???
-Should these wireless nodes be some sort of bridged?
-Should one wireless node be acting as independent node and the rest should act as repeaters?
