How to connect to stongest wireless signal
Posted on 2008-10-07
I have set up 6 WAPs in my workplace, using WPA Entrerprise. Each is on a differant channel. Problem I have is getting the XP clients to automatically connect to the one with the strongest signal. It seems the last connection takes precidence, then the next one down the list that has any signal, regardless of how weak. This means a laptop seeing 3 APs, one in the same room, one a few rooms away, and a very weak & intermittent signal at the other end of the factory might connect to any of the 3 bases.
Any idea if it is possible to tell XP to connect to the strongest? Not connect to anything with less than say 2 bars?
