fortiwi & AP clients loose connection when moving

Hello. I have a new Fortiwifi 90d-poe and an AP221B-A, they both share the same ssid wifi. if my laptops stay at same location I don' t have a problem but if one is moving and it connection then move from AP to fortiwifi, the pc is still able to access internet but can' t communicate with any other pc for about 3 minutes. after the 3 minutes pinging a laptop that is still on AP wifi will work. so I have a delay of couple of minutes for a pc to be fully up. is it normal? is something can be done to get a quicker access so laptop move from AP to fortiwifi and 1 sec after it can ping/access/print on other hardware on the network? fortigate and ap are both on 5.0.7.

Can you try this build. FAP_221B-v5.0.0-b6119-fortinet.out You can download from ftp 96.45.34.142 user/password - forum/12345678 Please let us know if it is fixed.

Sorry I didn' t saw your request before now. I' m surprise about this firmware 5.0.0 b6119 since the latest for 5.0.7 is b0064. Where did you get that one and is it a live version or an alpha/beta that never got to public? I know there is a 5.0.2 but support is not recommending it yet since it' s too new. the support guy I' m talking to is not also aware of this build version.

This is an internal build, which has fixes for roaming issue you are seeing. I have also verified the issue on this build. The fix will go into next release build. Thought we can give you quick fix for it.

Another suggestion is to try enabling " AP Handoff" and " Frequency Handoff" in the AP Profile. I' ve had luck with that in the past. See the pic below.
