How to make laptop switch from one access point to another

Hello I did some reading and it does not look possible but I always get great answers on here so I thought I ask.

I have 2 Wireless Routers
One has DHCP enabled on it with its own ip on channel 11
The other DHCP is disabled and with its own IP on channel 6
Both have same SSID and same WEP
AP do have a overlap.

When I walk from one side of the house to the other I have to disconnect and reconnect for the laptop to connect to the strong network.

Is there a way for the switch over to happen automatically?

You have to set the roaming aggressiveness on the adapter.
