Default scan valid interval?

Scan Valid Interval?The amount of time (in seconds) before the client starts scanning for a better access point after reaching the roaming threshold or missing beacons. (See Table 1 for the threshold criteria.) The higher the value, the less time the client spends scanning for a better access point and the more time it has to send data.
