Windows 7: Wireless roaming between Access Points

Wireless roaming between Access Points

Hi all,

I need to set up multiple access points so that a wireless user (with a laptop for instance) can roam between the APs without losing a connection.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Is there a particular wireless setting on the laptops?

Is there something I should be looking for in the AP? Any brand/model recommendations?

Hello Rob,

You may look for the same Make and Model APs, preferably APs that support simultaneous dual-band 802.11ac technology. Avoid interference in your network such as small appliance/technology devices. Use NetStumbler or Xirrus Wi-Fi Tool to make sure that your wireless channel do not overlap.

Hope this helps.
