If I have 5 WAP with the same SSID and Password, will a laptop connect to the strongest automatically?

Hey All -

I have a 6 Linksys WAP54G Wireless Access Point.

I want to set the SSID on all 6 as the same and the same WPA password

My concept is that I can add the password to 1 SSID closest to me and roam the office and connect to the strongest without having to re-enter password.

Is this possible?
