Motorola Hand held devices telnet session dropping when roaming on Ruckus AP's

I have some Motorola hand held devices that have telnet sessions on them in my warehouses.  These devices are dropping their telnet sessions when roaming between Ruckus Zone Flex 7982 AP's.  They are connected to a Zone Director 1100 controller.

There is no RF interference that I can find using spectrum analysis and I'm not steeping on in RF Channels that I can tell either.  The encryption is WPA2 and AES.

Any help would be appreciated.

For that to work, you have to enable mesh networking.  The user guide says the Air LED should be on or blinking rapidly; but has no instructions for turning it on.

So no network wires to any but the first?

No they have network wires but roaming should work on AP's that are wired.  My understanding is that mesh will self heal and work w/out wires but roaming should work whether the AP is wired or not.  I have 12 year old Cisco Ap's that roam just fine.

Most of the mesh devices I have dealt with use one network cable on the first AP then communitate wirelessley between the APs.

Yes, I agree.  I guess what I'm trying to say is that even if these are mesh or not mesh devices should still be able to roam between them w/out dropping a telnet session.  Roaming has been part of AP functionality before meshed networks came about.  

We have made adjustments to the roaming sensitivity on the hand helds and having some success with the sessions staying up right now so that might be a solution for us.  I'll post back if this seems to work long term.

There was no acceptable answer given and the problem was with the vendor hardware not a configuration issue.
