Wi-Fi roaming explored and explained @ SmallNetBuilder

It’s a good day when I find something this interesting and detailed. Learned quite a bit.

But Wi-Fi marketeers continue to promise “seamless” roaming and frustrated Wi-Fi users continue to believe them, especially when vendors promise their products use special techniques to bend Wi-Fi devices to their will.

So since I always say that data should do the talking, I’m going to show, in detail, how different devices can have entirely different roaming behavior with the same Wi-Fi system.
