Hopefully a quick question, I am looking at putting in about 4 Access points in a warehouse environment. I read about Wireless Domain Services (WDS) and was wodnering
1. Roaming between AP's will a SSH session drop? For example the wireless devices create a SSH connection to a remote server, when the users and devices move around the warehouse and go from AP to AP will the SSH connection drop if WDS is enabled and configured?

As long as you use the same SSID and security settings on each AP, and configure WDS correctly your SSH session will stay up.

For my security setting can I keep it as simple as using WPA2 with MAC address filtering on each AP? I guess what I am asking is, I don't need a radius server to use WDS, do I?

The devices will be on their own Subnet with only outbound access to Port 22 to a specific host. This is a also at a farm/warehouse so there aren't many people around to worry about.

No you don't need a RADIUS server - WDS will work with pre-shared keys.
