said by aziz786:I was able to verify the android phone switched by using the Wifi Manager app. With it open on the phone, I moved from upstairs to downstairs and saw that it switched from the upstairs channel 6 to the downstairs channel 11.
Just curious how do you verify that the iPod and the android switch to the stronger wifi when you move them around the house?
For the ipod, I just watched the wifi signal icon and as I moved downstairs the signal got weaker and once I got to downstairs to where the android picked up the stronger signal, the wifi signal icon got stronger.
Louist- I originally had the two routers set up with different SSIDs, but I also installed on the phone and the tablet an app called Best Wifi which auto switched to the stronger signal router. When I did it this route it seemed to work fine.
I just changed the second router to use the SSID of the upstairs router because, from what I had read, that is the "recommended" way of doing it when setting up access points. I'm new to access point setups.
