How to Automatically Connect to the Strongest Wi-Fi Network in Windows 11 or 10?

Everybody wants to connect to the fastest Wireless connection when multiple network hotspots are available nearby you. However, Windows 11 and 10 are not configured to auto-switch to the most robust Wi-Fi network. WiFinian is a freeware application that allows you to automatically switch to the best network nearby. But, those Windows users who don’t prefer to use a third-party application can also configure the Wi-Fi adapter manually to select the strongest network automatically.

You need to modify the Roaming Aggressiveness value for your Wi-Fi adapter for auto-switching. This will set the signal strength at a limit; after that, the Wi-Fi adapter will start scanning for another AP (Access Point) or hotspot.

In this gearupwindows article, we will guide you on automatically connecting to the strongest Wi-Fi network in Windows 11 and 10.
