    Default How can I get my phone to switch to best wifi?

    I have 2 separate wifi signals in my house. Is there a setting or an app that will automatically switch to the best signal as I move throughout my house?

    I think the avoid poor signal in advanced settings in WiFi will help with this.

    In advanced settings, is there an option for WiFi priority?

    I'm not getting a poor signal...I just want the best available signal

    If you set your WAPs for the same SSID and channels it will automatically switch. I have this set up in my house. No special configuration is necessary on the phone.

    If you can, force the access points to use either channel 1, 6 or 11 (assuming 2.4GHz). These don't overlap and, as long as one of them is not interfered with by other networks or cordless devices, will make roaming a little more reliable.

    You can set priority by name. Settings -> WiFi -> menu button -> manage networks. Slide them to your preference.
