WIFI doesn't connect to strongest AP

Postby Triacon » Mon Apr 13, 2015 5:46 pm

My experience is that, when there are multiple APs with same SSID( & passsword), the chip doesn't connect to the one with the strongest signal
but instead the one with lowest channel ID. Seems like it scans from low to high channels and connects to the first AP it finds with the right SSID.
Seems like a bug to me

Hello,

Is there any update on this topic? Does the ESP8266 connect to the strongest AP it sees (with a given SSIS) or does select the first one it encounters from a scan (i.e. with the lowest channel number).

Thanks
