roaming is always decided by client. Try updating driver for NIC if not done already.
Any other clients having problem?

802.1X authentication for wireless?

No, the only devices currently are laptops

Are you using RADIUS to authenticate clients though, or are you using PSK?

Check your thresholds and policies
Also, do a heat map to determine the coverage.

You situation may be a case where the signal never fell below threshold and hence no need to roam based on the policy. It may also indicate that the access points are too close to one another

Options, relocate APs based on heat map or play around with the power level the controller assigns to the APs

Check your RRM settings

Can you screenshot the Wireless -> Access Points -> All APs and the Wireless -> Access Points -> Radios -> 802.11b/g/n pages from the WLC, please?

See the highlighted sections on the attached image
That's the info Craig was asking for.
You'll be able to see the power levels your APs are running on there

Thanks for the help.  As it turned out, I was running a post deployment survey and I forgot to reset/end my survey application.  After I did that, the roaming worked fine.
