After moving to new AP, I restart dhclient to switch to the new network:

DHCPREQUEST on <interface> to port 67
DHCPNAK from <new router IP>
DHCPDISCOVER on <interface> to port 67 interval 6
DHCPREQUEST on <interface> to port 67
DHCPOFFER from <new router IP>
DHCPACK from <new router IP>

How do I avoid the delay?


Explicitly release the lease prior to acquiring a new one:

dhclient -r
dhclient -d wlan0
