I have upstairs (UP) and downstairs (DN) points. Downstairs is the original FiOS router, wired and wireless, the DHCP server. Upstairs is a router repurposed to a WAP.

When I go upstairs, the UP signal is stronger, but my iPhone 6+ does not switch to it. If I manually switch it, all is well. Then when I go downstairs, the DN signal is stronger, and it switches to it.

What's going on here? Shouldn't it always switch to the strongest signal where the PW is already entered?

Wish I had an answer but only a shared experience. Fairly regularly my phone latches onto one of my neighbors xfinitywifi networks instead of my home network. I've told the phone, an iPhone7, to forget xfinitywifi numerous times but it keeps doing it anyway. I can manually select my network and it stays there.

I don't know either but I see a common thread, and it starts with an "i". ;)
