Feature request: Wireless Connect List monitoring

Sun Aug 09, 2015 3:51 pm

Dear MikroTik!

It would be great, if you add a possibility to monitor availability of the wireless networks, specified in connect-list, and automatically connect to the most preferred, available in this list.
For example, you have 2 networks in connect list: 1. Network1; 2. Network2. If you currently connected to Network1 and this network disappears, a router will connect to Network2 (if available). But if later Network1 appears again, a router stays connected to Network2 and can only reconnect to Network1, if Network2 will disappear. It's very inconvenient and currently requires to manually connect to the most preferred network or writing different scripts, which periodically scans for available networks and therefore result in lost of connectivity.
This possibility is implemented for example in Windows, which allows to automatically connect to the most preferred available network, and it would be great to see something similar in RouterOS.

Thank you!
