What is Wi-Fi Roaming Aggressiveness?

Wi-Fi roaming aggressiveness refers to the rate that your Wi-Fi client automatically selects and switches to another access point or router with better signal quality. If you are having trouble connecting to the closest router or your wireless adapter is constantly trying to connect to different routers, this may be due to the roaming aggressiveness setting on your adapter.
