  1. Connecting to the Wifi network with the best signal 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.

    :)

  2. Not listing all the wifi signals available

    I recently upgraded to windows 10 from 8.1. I use an external wifi adapter in my lenovo z570 laptop. I am able to connect to a wifi network but my laptop is not listing all the wifi signals available so that i can choose which one to connect. But it automatically
    connects to one particular wifi nerwork. Where to find the list of networks available ? It was fine 8.1 but the problem appeared in win 10.

    Connecting to the Wifi network with the best signal on Windows 10

    WiFi appears in Manage Known Networks, not in Show Available Networks

    The list of WiFi connections shown when you click the WiFi icon in the taskbar is a list of all the signals that can currently be seen by the WiFi adapter. The list in Manage Known Networks is a list of all those you have previously successfully connected to, whether or not they are currently available.


    The only plausible explanation is that for a while that WiFi signal had been turned off.
