Re: How to find out the candidate APs of an associated station?

I've forgot an important detail: I only can manipulate the AP, thus I cannot run a program in the station side (such a scanning program) and transmit the information to the AP. However, I am able to ask the station (via SNMP). Do you know if the stations have a list of the candidate APs? Thus, if the stations keep the list of the APs that can reach in a MIB and it is possible to access to it.
