In every release note: Sporadic packet loss & instability on Layer 3 roaming & Teleworker VPN SSID's

So have people encountered this loss? 

For a long while I have been and still am hesitant in updating the firmware as we use L3 roaming.

And in every release note it is mentioned 😕

We moved all sites away from L3 roaming as it generally seemed to cause numerous issues, is there a reason you need it?

When designing the office network it was choosen so moving away from it would take some effort. At the time our multiple floor office was really crowded and it seemed a good choice.

We did not and have not any issues with it.

So i kept watching the release notes and would expect a fix to be introduced after numerous versions and patches. Stepping away from an available technique is an option but as reason firmware instability is a bit odd.

Wireless is at its heart Layer 2. Layer 3 is doable but causes lots of issues roaming, in particular with latency sensitive applications like voice and video conferencing.
