I am trying to get roaming to work with
the zd1211rw driver included in Linux 188.8.131.52. The hardware platform is
ARM (Atmel AT91RM9200).
Initial association with an access point
works perfectly every time.
When roaming to a new access point it
never reassociates, so my ping session just stops.
To get my WLAN session active again,
I have to go through the following sequence:
1) "ifconfig eth1 down"
2) "rmmod zd1211rw"
3) "insmod /lib/modules/zd1211rw"
4) "ifconfig eth1 172.17.0.2 up"
5) "iwconfig eth1 essid tp5600test"
Immediately association succeeds and
I get the following message:
"SoftMAC: Open Authentication completed
The problem can be easily reproduced
by changing channels (by at least 2 channels to avoid channel overlap)
on your accesspoint while the Linux system is associated with it.
Why does the WLAN not roam automatically,
without having to reinitialize everything?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks and best regards
