With wireless hacking tools getting easier to use all the time, and DEAUTHs being one of the easiest way to force clients off a network, I thought it would be ideal to be able to make the wireless interface ignore DEAUTH requests from clients.
When a legitimate client wants to disconnect by shutting down or moves to another AP, the connection will simply timeout (3s, settable in Winbox already). Uldis at MikroTik support says that by ignoring DEAUTHs "roaming also will not work correctly on the AP when the client wanted to roam to the other AP in the same frequncy." But this can be avoided by not having nearby APs on exactly the same frequency.
In 'safe' environments, DEAUTHs can be left working as normal, while in hack-prone areas (hotspots, business areas, PtP, PtMP links), DEAUTHs can be ignored.
So my feature request is to have the option to make wireless interfaces ignore DEAUTH requests when they are in AP Bridge mode.
