Connect to the strongest WiFi

I have two access points, each has the same SSID. One on channel 1, and one on channel 11. (2.4ghz) Often, even when close to the channel 1 AP, my SP3 connects to the channel 11 AP that is far away. And I get very poor WiFi, or none at all. Using a WiFi analyzer, it looks like the poor signal is about 25dB down, yet it keeps going to it.

Is there a setting that would help force it to switch to the best channel in this situation?

I have the exact same problem with my SP4. The only difference is that I am using a 5 GHz network. It's an Orbi mesh router, and all the access points are on the same channel. If it's connected to a weaker network, the SP4 won't connect to the strongest one unless I disable wifi for a long time (at least a minute).

It's extremely frustrating!
