802.11r FastRoaming capable clients not reporting correctly?

I've set up av new SSID with WPA2 enterprise (radius) and 802.11r enabled and clients consist of a mixture of iOS and Windows devices. The strange thing is that ONLY iOS devices are reported 802.11r capable in dashboard, not the Windows client?!

I also see successfully 802.11r roamings on iOS devices in the event log.

The windows clients are fairly new and I checked 11r compatibility with Intel.

According to MS this should be default enabled on the OS level (as long as you run 802.1x) and I can't find any related settings on the wifi adapter advanced settings.


Has anyone successfully got this working and reporting correctly in dashboard on Windows clients at all?


Due to corona restrictions, please switch to UDP in order to avoid handshakes.

This is from my dashboard:

If it is just a matter of the client reporting their capabilities to the dashboard, that could 100% be due to the Cisco Meraki/Apple partnership, which includes things like Fastlane(+), allows us to get more information from the device drivers than we do with other devices, as seen above.
