Does RAX80 and RAX40 support 802.11 roaming protocol?

Does RAX80 and RAX40 support 802.11 roaming protocol?(802.11k or 802.11r or 802.11v)? If RAX80 is the main route and RAX40 is in AP mode, can it achieve seamless roaming?

Yes, if the EX7700 is in AP mode, the mesh feature will work. You will need to set the SSID the same on all WiFi interfaces.

Hello lvchen860217, 

 

The RAX80 and RAX40 currently does not support the roaming protocol.

If RAX80 is used as the main route, and ex7700 or other extender is connected through Lan-Lan (AP mode), can this combination achieve seamless roaming?

Thank you for your reply.

Although EX7700 supports 802.11k, but RAX80 does not. Are there some problems when roaming from EX7700 to RAX80?

Based on some early days Data Sheet where it was not listed (and initially not available) or what? The point is that Netgear does not update Data Sheets, User Manuals, ... very often.
