Windows 8, 7260-AC and Cisco - possible fix

If you, like me, have issues with frequent disconnects on Windows 8 on Cisco WLANs, you may try disabling Fast Roaming and Radio Management Support under Cisco Options in PROSet. With those enabled my Windows 8 with Intel 7260-AC Dual Band couldn't keep a ping going for more than 60 seconds (Windows 7 puzzlingly don't seem to have an issue either way). With them unchecked I could walk around the office, roaming between 6 different WAPs, without skipping a ping. YMMV.

Thanks for sharing this information. It may be useful for other users with enterprise security.

The option Allow Fast Roaming (CCKM) is not enabled by default.

It actually was enabled in the driver bundle I downloaded from Dell for the Latitude E7240. For other models I've noticed that those options are deselected by default, so might have been a slip-up for that particular download only.

Hmmm..... Intel's ProSet software bundle has "Cisco Options"???

I don't currently have proset installed, so can't check that.

It does - but they only appear as configurable options under each wireless profile if you are connected to a Cisco network (or WPA2-Enterprise - not sure what triggers it).
