Question About wireless roaming question


Hi Guys,

I'm using Fedora 13 , wireless card:Intel 512AN_MMW
kernel version:2.6.33.6-147.fc13.i686

below is my problem:

when i finished install F13,i can use Wireless card surfing internet
i have multiple ap's , and if the ap set with same ssid and different channel , i can roaming between ap's if i'm accessing the internet ,
otherwise, it won't change to greater signal ap if i'm not using the internet , does this condition normally ?

====important question here====
The other question is , if i'm using different ssid , like "wlan01" "wlan02" , can i roaming between this two ap's automatically ?
===============================

thanks for your reading and apologize for my poor english!!

Most common is roaming between diferen aps not ssids.

On my card, roaming is done when signal is low and it is done by firmware on chip, not network manager.
