I have a fritz!Box 4040 running openWRT 22.3.2.
It is configured as a dumb AP with no dhcp or dns.
I am trying to activate fast transitioning in it to do roaming with my main router (Belkin RT3200 with openWRT last snapshot).
I have already activated it in my main router, but there is no option in my Fritz!Box, no WLAN roaming under interfaces/wireless network configuration.
I had activated it once, several months ago but I had to deactivate it as there where problems with some devices.
I would like to test it again.
I have installed wpad-basic with no luck, and I have tried wpad-basic-wolfssl with same results (this is what is installed in my main router and it works, there appears a WLAN roaming tab where I can activate FT).
What am I missing?
Thanks a lot.
I have removed wpad-* and installed hostapd
But the problem persists.
My problem is not that fast transitions does not work.
The problem is that I cannot even activate it.
In the luci interface in network/wireless there is no WLAN roaiming tab as I have in the other router where I can activate fast transitions for the wifi network ssid I want.
So it seems that 802.11r software is not working at all whatever package I install.
Well, I have reinstalled hostapd and rebooted the device.
Now I can see the fast transition option.
It is not under a separate WLAN roaming tab, but under wireless security tab.
I could activate it, now let me see if it works.
I have uninstalled wpad-basic-wolfssl in the main router and installed hostapd too, in order to run the same software in them (I suppose that would prevent compatibility problems among implementations).
I will see if this time there is no problem with roaming in my devices.
I have stablished 802.11w (management frame protection) as optional (I had previously problems enforcing it with some devices).
I have been making more tests.
Transistions seems to work now correctly.
But I have found two glitches.
Since I have substituted wpad by hostapd, I cannot use WPA3 security.
It seems hosapd does not support wpa3.
In the main router, since I have installed hostapd, the 2.4 GHz wifi device does not work. It keeps returning devece not active, eve when rebooted.
I will try reverting to wpad-basic-wolfssl in the main router.
