Butch, to do Layer 3 fast roaming, Cisco uses GRE tunnels into a WLSM module. That combined with CCX extensions allow them to do under 50 ms handoffs. Supposedly, just the CCX extensions make it possible for under 150 ms handoffs. I wonder if it is possible for Mikrotik to implement any of these protocols.
