assigning an IP address when triggering handovers

Hello all,


                In my wpa_supplicant.conf I have two network sections and I
am using wpa_cli to trigger handovers from one to the other and vice versa.
Currently I am using static ip addresses and ideally I would like when I
trigger a handover to assign a new ip address to the wireless interface as
fast as possible. 


Is there any way that wpa_supplicant or wpa_cli can do this for me? E.g. any
ip_address option that could go in the wpa_supplicant.conf or any command in
wpa_cli to assign an ip address to the interface? I am assuming that if such
an option exists, when it will be enforced, the kernel  will take care of
the routing table as well.


                Thanks a lot in advance,
