What if the connection of network 1 is slower than network 2. Will the pi simply connect to the faster one? Can I always specify the order of which it should pick the networks, no matter the connection speed or signal strength?
I assume that you are considering both posts to be the same question? I think they are actually completely different questions. This question is regarding signal strength and actual ordering of several different networks in my wpa_supplicant. The question you are referring to is regarding a single open network with specified SSID in my wpa_supplicant file and whether it will ignore the SSID.
