good point.. im using 4 wireless connections , 2 mine and 2 from the neighbours , so i would be happy to have a choice of which to use and perhaps be able to use it from another wireless going through mios gate.

Hi All,

Just a quick "chirp In" I too have 2 wireless connections but use them in Bridge mode with the same SSID so I don't have the issue described.  this also means I don't really ever switch connections (I do in theory but for arguments sake) the signal just gets stronger when on the closest connection.  A possible solution?

@ Da_JoJo - 2 for your neighbours also hey.... does he know lol  :o  ;)

I use to have my access points with same ssid, however wifi is horrible at changing access points for a stronger signal. It will hold onto the connection for long as it can. I now use different ssid's and configure the devices to the closest access point. It also allows me to easily switch to the stronger one faster.

Always an excellent font of knowledge @Garrett, I had never though of that!  One to try out and makes perfect sense too.  :)

I've tried both ways and separate SSIDs seems to work the best. For a while I did have a range extender running which of course meant the same SSID but the newer routers don't need that in most residential installations so I got rid of it.

another suggestion for this app if possible

for the trigger NOT to run on system/app startup
as an example

i was flashing new roms on the weekend and had many reboots
everytime the phone turned on\
the app triggered

if possible it would be nice to "ignore" connection to wireless at startup
in order to not falsely trigger

@lightson yes he and she knows,  they use my wireless connections too :-)  one in the front of building and one in the back, having a 600 meter radius now ^^. we had tried all having the same SSID but this turned out be faulty as their wireless doesnt connect to my local lan and vice versa. their routers have no ability to bridge them all. would be nice if we could use multiple wireless accespoints at the same time, that way we could have a 300mbit internet connection. probably some day in the future. i got nervous from the app triggering all the time as i walk through the house and get connected to neighbours wifi and back to mine so i dropped it.
