Default WiFi: Auto-Connect to Strongest?

I've tried WiFi Buddy, WiFi Manager, Open WiFi, WiFinder, and a few others that I can't recall.

The desire is to have my N7000 Note automagically connect to the strongest WAP as I move through a building - dropping any weaker point in favor of a stronger one.

No user action, just quietly do it.

Has anybody found an app that will do this?

Doesn't it already do that? I move around my campus with my Galaxy S, and once it gets far enough from the connection to drop, it will automatically connect to the strongest one it recognizes. Of course all the connections are saved. It won't connect to unknown signals.

I think "drop" is the problem. A point may still be strong enough to be connected to, but transfer rate might be poor compared to a new point that isn't connected to yet bc the old one is still technically within range

Ah I see. May be the arrangement of the building. Moving between floors in my case, the signal is weak enough to drop, so there is a different wifi router per floor which is strong enough to serve the entire area.
