  2. Re: 2 WAPs same SSID possible

    Hi
    The only way to resolve it is by trying.
    Put each Router on a separate channel (like 1, and 11), and try with the
    same SSID and a different SSID.

    That is possible if your accesspoints support IAPP.

    Same SSID and different channels is the standard way to support wireless
    roaming with multiple WAPs. It usually works well with laptops. Whether
    it will do the same for your devices is hard to say. Best to just try it.
