Any way to change the wi-fi disconnect threshold?

    On one side of my house, I can barely pick up wi-fi from my own router. This leads to constant switching between wi-fi and 4G which gets very annoying. Is there any way to adjust the threshold at which wi-fi disconnects? This would mean me using 4G on that side of the house, but it would also stop the constant switching. I know that I could just turn wi-fi off to solve the problem, but I would much prefer to leave it on and force it to disconnect at slightly higher signal than it currently does.

    I have the same issue. I bought a diamond wireless network extender to transmit the signal throughout the whole house. Then I downloaded the app, best wifi. Now no problems, strong wifi throughout the house and gnex switches seamlessly to strongest signal.

    I think there is an app in the play store called "better signal" that does what you are looking for.

    Can't seem to find it though, but I saw it in the application announcements a week or so ago.

    Edit: found it... its called best signal:

    THANK YOU!! i wish there were a free way to do it, but at the end of the day, $2 is a small price to pay for the convenience. :D
