Spectre x360 g2 wifi Roaming Agressiveness

Spectre x360 g2
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a number of end users that are experiencing issues with wifi Access Points.

 

It seems they are connecting to other access points using the same SSID further away but they do not seem to disconnect automatically.  The tell tale signs are very low ping and pint drop outs, even if there's another access point directly nearby.

 

I've tried changing the wifi Agressiveness to LOW, however this hasn't made one bit of difference.

 

The Spectres have an Intel wifi NIC and this is what Intel say under Roaming Agressiveness.

This setting alters the signal strength threshold at which the WiFi adapter starts scanning for another candidate AP. The default value is Medium. Depending on the environment, one option may work better than the other. You may try other values to see which works best for your environment. However, it is recommended to revert back to the default (Medium) if no improvement is observed with other values

Lowest: The WiFi adapter will trigger scan a for another candidate AP when the signal strength with the current AP is very low.

Medium (default): Recommended value

Highest: The WiFi adapter will trigger scan a for another candidate AP when the signal strength with the current AP is still good.

 

Should this be set to HIGH?
