Improve Wi-Fi Reception by setting Roaming Aggressiveness


Modify network traffic roaming by changing network adapter settings


Overview

The ‘aggressiveness’ with which your computer roams determines how frequently and how likely it is for your computer to switch APs. If you have it set very high, your computer could be jumping between APs frequently.

This can be a problem as it can cause your connection to be interrupted frequently as your computer authenticates to another AP. Having the aggressiveness set very low, or disabling it, can cause your computer to ‘stick’ to one AP, making it difficult to move around and maintain a connection.

The low roaming aggression is the more frequent problem people run into on large networks


Steps to limit Roaming Aggressiveness

2. Type DEVICE MANAGER
