What would you expect to happen if the current AP disconnects the
station or goes out of radio range? There is unlikely to be an existing
parameter that does exactly what you might be thinking of here, but if
you want to force a single AP to be used, you can use the bssid
parameter in a network profile to allow only a single BSS (AP) to be
used. You could set that even after the initial connection, if needed,
to set the parameter to the BSSID of that initial BSS.
