Advanced-N 6230 not connecting to repeater (stronger signal)

Hi.

I have a Dell XPS 15 L502x laptop with Intel Advanced-N 6230 WiFi Card.

Everything is working fine and as expected, except for one thing:

I have a repeater for the second floor of my house since the signal of my router is very weak and there are dead spots.

The router is a D-Link DIR-827 and the repeater is a D-Link DAP-1360.

Every other device (iPhone, iPad, other smartphones) get the WiFi from the repater, hence the signal us very good.

But for some strange reason my laptop won't connect to the repeater, even if the sigal is stronger that the router.

It's important to mention that both, router and repeater, have the same SSID.

Is there an option to fix this?

Thanks

Hello ektorbarajas,

You may want to play with the Roaming Aggressiveness settings found in the Advanced tab of the Intel® Centrino Advanced-N 6230 properties window. You can open this window by double clicking the wireless adapter in Device Manager (Control Panel).

Hi Joe_intel, since it allows you to choose between 1 and 5, and it's on 3, I assume that I must try with 5 for it to catch the stronger signal?

Thanks, will try that and comment back
