for a large mesh this (short intervall) might not work out well

hmm what hna interval did you choose?

hmm i (was thinking of adhoc mode) while you probably seperate your  
networks over the (b)ssid of your master-aps, so one master-ap will never  
get a packet from a client not connected/associated to him.

if so i´m wondering if the same mac has much benefits, as after leaving  
one ap and choosing another, the device might clear the routing and  
neighbour entries associated with its wireless interface, ands starts  
another dhcp request. (but maybe it doesnt`t)
