I am deploying a wireless network at a public building and have a question about Coova and DHCP.
A few AP will be needed to cover the whole area, and the actual idea is to deploy some AP (maybe 3-4) and wire them into a switch, and this switch to a computer running freeradius + openldap, that will authenticate users and also provide them internet access. (I have taken the project from the previous guy, so there are some things that are "already planed" but I could change if necessary... do you see this option as correct, switching wires?)
Here comes my question: I have to ensure correct roaming from AP inside the building, but I have seen that each AP has its own DHCP, sooooo.... I am lost :( I think it won´t roam, but I don´t know how it could be designed. I suppose the behavior will be the following one: a client connects, Coova resolves DHCP and assigns IP address, petitions from client go through radius server and access is granted. If the client walks away, there will be a point where: the client is conected to AP1 but signal from AP2 is stronger (both AP with the same SSID). I don´t think it will roam automatically, at least as long as signal from AP1 is recieved. Also, I have another question, I have read that the correct way to deal with roaming is same SSID, same channel... this won´t create interferences between devices?
I would appreciate any help :)
