wherein the processing circuitry is to:
decode a probe, association, or reassociation request frame from a STA previously associated with a second AP belonging to the ESS;
decode a previous agreement between the previously associated STA and the second AP; and,
encode a probe, association, or reassociation response frame to send to the previously associated STA that is further encoded with an agreement element indicating whether or not the previous agreement is to remain in effect.
