    Hi there,

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S, running Froyo. I have an issue with WiFi handover, so I am posting here (in addition to the SGS section) in case this is an Android issue rather than an SGS-specific issue.

    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

    Please do not make duplicate threads over several forums. Continue the discussion in the Samsung Galaxy S forum.
