    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.
