4 Wireless Access Points netgear WN802Tv2

I have 4 netgear wireless access points, model number WN802Tv2, in the same building.  I would like for users to be able to walk around the building with laptops with seamless wireless internet connectivity.  Can I give all 4 access points the same SSID and passkey, and just change the frequency.  Will this work, or do I have to play with the bridge/repeater settings to get them to all work together.  Please help.  The laptops are DELL and windows XP or 7.

Yes, it would work if you use the windows built-in wireless manager instead of the Wireless Manufacture's software. And like you said make sure you use the correct channels like 1 6 11

Hello
You can setup your netgear router as repeater.Have a look at the following  link to netgears website .the same basic setup should apply to your routers.If not it would be a good idea to invest in some repeaters .
Using repeaters there would effectively only be one ssid.

There might be a  wired option in case the routers are not close enough to each other.
