Hello everyone,

I'm freshman for hostap. Now I met a strange problem when I try to roaming my device from AP#1 to AP#2

After associated to AP#1, when signal is low, I will try to scan the network to find the signal stronger AP#2, so I prepare my device to associate to AP#2 (set channel etc.), then strange thing happen, AP#2 is sending DEAUTHENTICATION frame continuously, as well as EAPoL package. (Log shows  802.1X authentication success, but faill to get GroupKey. Sometimes, after massive round, it will success and get GroupKey and Pair Key)

Why did AP send DEAUTHENTICATION frame to me continuously?
What type frame should I respond when I got DEAUTHENTICATION frame?

Anybody can help me about this?
