It's a client problem. You client always decide when and why to roam.

An option to force the roaming (but can also be a disconnection) it to disable low data rates and disconnect clients with bad RSSI. But this mostly produce other problems.

That's not for the AP. This guide is for configuring the Intel client driver.

Hi Tuan

The article which you are referencing is not related to WiNG product!

Yes, for roaming, the decision marker is the client, not AP and wireless controller.

To further troubleshooting roaming, it is better to take wireless packet capture and check site survey result.
