Finally found a few moments to revert the Compaq Netbook to its factory-set MAC Address, edit the two WAP4410N config files, and as as Jason said within a few minutes everything was as it should have been in the first place! A more elegant solution than my "cheat" method... well done!I was already aware of the value of the config file, having used the file for WAP4410N-1 to speed up prep of WAP4410N-2, both virtually identical except theyare on different channels. Without conducting detailed tests, seamless roaming for the Netbook seems to be working OK.I assume Cisco will fix this annoying bug in a future firmware release?

Jason Bryant - You are the man.  I got 2 of the WAP4410Ns to cover all of my factory.  I was trying to get the first WAP to work.  After going through all the trouble of changing the MAC on the first laptop I saw your post!!!  Wow - just what I needed.!!!  I put the data into the config file with notepad, uploaded and Zoinks - it worked - fantastic.  I was also able to copy the config and change a few settings so I could just access the second WAP - upload the cfg file - a reboot and I was all set.   Thank you very much for your elegant solution to our problem. Frank - now my face looks like this :)

Hi JasonBusy learning how to produce an XP SP3 CD with all latest hotfixes, drivers etc slipstreamed just now, and cannot risk getting side-tracked! However my next task is to personalize the Compaq Netbook for my wife (after all it was her Xmas pressie and here we are well into 2010 and all she can do on it is play a few games and surf the web). So I will test your method then by setting its MAC Address back to its factory setting, and editing the WAP4410N config file as you said. I know exactly how to do it, anticipate no issues and will post my result ASAP. Thanks for your continued support.Norrie

Norrie, Your welcome, Just found that out recently and it works very well. After reconfiguring the config file, just load it back into the wap4410n .Log into the wap4410 and just verify that the mac address is in the mac field, and test. I have only tested on one pc, but if it worked for that one mac address it should be the same for other pcs. Reguards,   Jason
