    @NQT 

    802.11r is useful for skipping the 802.1X authentication cycle for a fast transition when roaming and allows for sharing client encryption keys between APs.

    Are you using 802.1X/RADIUS authentication for your networks?

    @Stephane Thank you. I use access point for my home, i don't have radius server. I think fast roaming default enable in WPA2-PSK (AES). Perhaps i was choose the wrong access point

    @NQT  802.11r is only enabled on when you are using Radius authentication as you can see from the screenshot. Are you having issues with clients not roaming and dropping connections or just not roaming at all?802.11r.JPG

    In website aruba said AP11 for SOHOs, boutiques, retail shops! I think they need enable fast roaming simple & easy, they don't need radius sever

    I hope it will change in the future, make it simple and easy for customers
