  1. Connecting to the strongest Wifi network on Windows 10


    I have two Wifi networks at home and I would like my Windows 10 laptop to automatically connect to the network with the strongest signal.


    As recommended by the Microsoft community, I tried to change the network settings to increase the roaming aggressiveness of my wifi adapter. However, that did not work for me.


    After spending a lot of time researching other possible solutions, none of which worked for me, I decided to write a Windows service to solve the problem. The service runs in the background and continually scans for available wifi networks, ranks them by signal strength, and connects to the network with the strongest signal.


    I've been running the service on my windows 10 laptop for a few weeks now and it works like a charm.


    Steps to install -

    1. Download the exe from here - https://drive.google.com/file/d/17rS2XPK7Esmklcs_JsGOt5iT5bYaRfQr/view?usp=sharing

    2. Install the exe as a windows service. sc create ConnectToBestWifiService <Path to exe>

    3. Launch Windows service manager, locate ConnectToBestWifiService, right click, go to properties and set Start Up type to automatic.

    4. Start ConnectToBestWifiService from the service manager.


    Hope this helps others who may have the same problem.


    Good luck

    :)

    Connecting to the strongest and fastest wifi network in windows 10

    Original Title: Connecting to the strongest and fastest wifi network

    Hi,

    I use a relatively new laptop with the latest version of Windows 10.

    Among available (Wi-Fi) networks, and those which windows remembers and set to connect to automatically, I would like it to connect to the strongest and fastest network. This is not the case. And sometimes Windows uses weak, or slow connections, until I
    set it manually to a different network.

    Any solutions?

    Thanks,

    Ben

  4. Connecting to the strongest Wifi network on Windows 10

    ERR_NETWORK_CHANGED due to WiFi cycling on & off while connected on wired ethernet

    Hi,

    Your laptop will automatically connect to a wireless connection if you select to connect automatically the first time you connect to it and whenever you are within the range of the of that wireless connection. The indication that
    your laptop is connecting to a wireless connection, you will see a cycle on the wireless connection icon. If your premises have multiple routers and you
    are moving around, your laptop will connect to the router that has the strongest wireless connection. We suggest
    that you delete the wireless network names on your laptop and re-connect to them again. Here are the steps on how you can delete or remove wireless network profiles on your laptop:

    • Press Windows Key + I to open the Settings app. Select Network & Internet.
    • Click on WiFi in the left panel to see Manage WiFi Settings, click it.
    • Press on Forget. This will delete the Wireless Network's profile and connection details.

    If the issue still persists, please refer to this

    on how to fix network connection issue in Windows 10.

    Regards.
