Two Access Points that occassional drop the conncection

I have two 3Com 9150 11n  Power over Ethernet access points.  I have each setup with a unique IP address, WPA security, Same SSID and Same security key.  One is set to channel 1 and one to channel 6.  My problem is that when the lenovo laptop are moving around they will occassionally drop the connection to the network just briefly, but long enough for the EMD software to lose connection with the Server thus forcing the doctors to have to restart and log into the software again.  I also have a wireless guest gate connection which is set to channel 6.  Can anyone suggest something that I may be missing.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Perhaps the computers confuse both of the routers.

The problem might be solved by naming them something like "AccessA" and "AccessB" or something of the sort.

Having the same key shouldn't be a problem, but I recommend that you rename one of the SSIDs and see if that is the issue.
