WiFi Fast Roaming on OpenWRT (Fast Transition)

Fast roaming, also known as IEEE 802.11r or Fast BSS Transition (FT), allows a client device to roam quickly in environments implementing WPA2 Enterprise security, by ensuring that the client device does not need to re-authenticate to the RADIUS server every time it roams from one access point to another.

We can easily configure Wifi fast roaming with LuCi. The required package is wpad (the full package, not wpad-mini nor wpad-basic).

ESSID, encryption, key (password) and the Mobility Domain should be the same between each of the AP (node) while the operating frequency is advised to be different.
