I have talked to people who use Wifi Voip phones and their call doesn't interrupt if the system is properly configured.when client change the AP, lost any connection for some seconds. This is real problem for Voip, and for this reason 802.11r exist.
Hotels are doing only ssid same. But my thought is different if ssids are same but mac addresses are different, there should be a connection problem when you're mobile(in car, in bus, in bike etc...) and connecting wi-fi that will make problem because that connection will be lost in 1 minute and try to search for 10 sc so user will have %80 connectivity. But If mac address will be same, that will make no problem and there is no connection lost.what sarpkaya says is true. that's what most hotels do, just make the same SSID. of course there will be a reconnection, I guess Uldis can explain more (?)
Mmm, that's strange.Sparkaya
I understund your point, but 2 AP, connected in the same LAN, with the same MAC address, will cause colissions at layer 2 level. It´s the same thing if you configure 2 PC with the same IP Address. That is the problem becouse you can't use the same MAC address for the AP.
