1. A computer-implemented method comprising:
determining a first transmission scenario associated with transmission of wireless signals of a particular wireless communication protocol from a first device to a second device, the first transmission scenario specifying one or more first transmission characteristics for the transmission of the wireless signals, wherein at least one of the one or more first transmission characteristics is based on a status of the first device, the status of the first device including at least one of:
a peripheral being connected to the first device via a physical connector,
use of one or more antennas of the first device by a second wireless communication protocol that is different than the particular wireless communication protocol, or
a spatial status of the first device, wherein the spatial status includes at least one of: a motion or an orientation of the first device in space;
sending a first test message wirelessly from the first device to the second device based on the one or more first transmission characteristics of the first transmission scenario;
receiving a first reply message from the second device in response to the first test message, the first reply message including one or more first signal quality indicators that indicate a signal quality of the first test message;
selecting the first transmission scenario as a designated scenario based on the one or more first signal quality indicators; and
causing data to be wirelessly transmitted via the wireless signals from the first device to the second device based on the one or more first transmission characteristics of the designated scenario.
