Recently, I have had Windows 10 and Windows 11 clients keep disconnecting after opening there laptop. This usually happens after they have roamed to another location either within the building or to another building. I have many AP's around campus. I have been trying to work with Meraki support and adjust the RF settings with the min. bitrate and radio settings. I thought this helped and I think it has a little but something is still going on.
One thing I have noticed that clients that do not have sleep on after closing the laptop seem to keep the connection after roaming.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me to try have the Wi-Fi automatically connect after roaming?
Legacy clients cannot associate with a WLAN that has 802.11r enabled if the driver of the supplicant that is responsible for parsing the Robust Security Network Information Exchange (RSN IE) is old and not aware of the additional AKM suites in the IE. Due to this limitation, clients cannot send association requests to WLANs. These clients, however, can still associate with non-802.11r WLANs. Clients that are 802.11r capable can associate as 802.11i clients on WLANs that have both 802.11i and 802.11r Authentication Key Management Suites enabled. The workaround is to enable or upgrade the driver of the legacy clients to work with the new 802.11r AKMs, after which the legacy clients can successfully associate with 802.11r enabled WLANs. Another workaround is to have two SSIDs with the same name but with different security settings (FT and non-FT).
