Get iPad to select specific wifi access point
HI, i posted this in ios but i think it was the wrong forum. Apologies.
I have extended my wifi network and have a main router and second access point. They have the same ssid and wPA key so the clients connection can roam seamlessly.
I want my mobile devices to pick up on the strongest access point and lock its connection onto that.
The objective is to connect to the strong access point upstairs when I am present up there.
My android phone and laptop lock onto this access point no problem and there are utilities / apps on each device to confirm this showing the AP mac addresses, etc. Also, if needed, I can use a client app to manually switch the connected AP easily.
However, my ipad2 seems to hang on to the downstairs AP with the weak signal and I have no way of telling or confirming this as I can't find any tools to show the connected AP, let alone have any control over the connected AP.
Does anyone have any experience of this sort of setup?
