Re: Selecting the best Access Point?

It does not seem to make much difference. It seems like the first BSSID is selected, despite weaker signal. Really hope that you can figure out a good way of making it more dynamic (e.g. periodic scan)

Hi, Unsure what the status is, when it comes to Wi-Fi scanning and selecting the best AP, but having installed "ESP_Easy_mega_20210503_normal_ESP8266_4M1M" on an original Wemos D1 mini pro, shows me that ESPEasy doesn't connect to the strongest RSSI, but rather one with much lower RSSI val...

Re: can we make an option to disable AP mode

I would still second the option to disable AP mode. When reconfiguring eg. UniFi AP’s, there is a short stop in Wi-Fi communications, causing all ESPEasy modules to go into AP mode. Would be much better to retry association every <x> second.
