    Hi there,

    I have two Wifi Access Points (APs) at home, both using the same SSID, but on different channels.

    I expected the SGS to automatically move (handover) from one AP to another based on signal strengths that vary depending on where I am.

    However, this does not happen. It stays on the AP that it is connected to, even when moving to very poor signal levels.

    I need to manually trigger this (e.g by disconnecting from the AP).

    Is there a way to fix this? e.g. configuration or Android app.

    By the way, I also tried configuring the APs with different SSIDs, but this didn't work either.

    Thanks
    Tim

    I have this same problem on my Galaxy S (Captivate) phone. Is there any solution? Seems to be a problem with all Android Phones?

    This is basic functionality that any WiFi capable device should have. Especially the Vibrant with UMA calling.
