Would really appreciate any help with this:
I have a Belkin G Router bridged to a Belkin Access Point. The Router is connected to a DSL modem which is configured "Bridge Ethernet" The Belkin Router handles all the routing. The Router is at the back of the house (SSID is "Back") and the Access Point is at the front (SSID is "Front").
The laptops we have use Windows to configure wireless. The problem is this: our laptops are moved around the house. So, the laptop will try to connect to the first preferred connection "Back" when you are in the front, even if the signal is awful, and won't let go unless you change it manually to "Front" or unless "Back" goes out altogether. The obvious solution to this is to make "Front" the preferred connection, but if you have the laptop in the back of the house...well, you see the problem. This leads to a spotty internet connection.
Is there some way either to 1) make windows treat "Back" and "Front" as the same thing so the connection remains relatively stable or 2) to make Windows stay connected to only the strongest signal it finds?
Again, any help is appreciated.
