How to Enable or Disable Wi-Fi AutoSwitch on Windows 11?

When the Autoswitch (WLANProfile) feature is enabled, Windows will automatically connect to a more preferred network as long as the preferred network enters within reach. It can be helpful in a multi-WiFi network environment. However, this can also result in a higher frequency of periodic scanning of new networks and increase radio frequency pollution and the power consumption used by the wireless network adapter.

When Windows connects to an existing Wi-Fi network, it periodically searches for a more preferred network. So, a preferred network comes into range, and Windows automatically switches to that network instead. It is complete without disconnections. However, not all transitions are smooth.

By default, this feature is disabled in Windows 11. You can activate it with a few clicks if you prefer to use it. Now, if you’re having trouble with frequent disconnects or Wi-Fi instability, you might want to turn it off if it’s enabled. This risewindows article will guide you on how to enable or disable Wi-fi AutoSwitch on Windows 11.
