Description

I added WiFi extender to my home but now I am impacted by bad algorithm, selecting AP "randomly", ignoring the one with stronger signal:

  1. dladm scan-wifi
    LINK ESSID BSSID SEC STRENGTH MODE SPEED
    wpi0 ababa AA:AA:AA:AA:AA:AA wpa weak n 54Mb
    wpi0 ababa BB:BB:BB:BB:BB:BB wpa good n 54Mb
  1. dladm show-wifi
    LINK STATUS ESSID SEC STRENGTH MODE SPEED
    wpi0 connected ababa wpa weak g 1Mb

As workaround I have to force dladm to connect to BSSID manually but NWAM is trying to reconnect to the other from time to time.
