I'm designing a WLAN for an old building with stone walls etc. I'm anticipating that a single Wireless access point is not going to do the job. I understand that a single Wireless Router with ADSL modem could be extended with one or more WAPs (Wireless Access Points). Each of the WAPs (and indeed the router) needs to operate on non overlapping channels which are 5 channels apart, say, 1,6,11.
My question is, given that the above is deployed, if a laptop user roams around the whole wireless network is the switch from channel to channel seamless or would some interaction with the user be required. I'm thinking the DHCP might complain or when one channel drops out of cover the user has to rescan.
I have an existing WLAN but have not ventured into this multiple AP area, I hope you guys can help.
