Cisco Aironet 1252G

I have a Cisco Aironet 1252G, but I want to extend the range.  Is it possible to buy another Aironet access point and still use the same SSID?  It would be cool if someone could walk from one side of my building to the other without having to renew DHCP over the AP.  Is this possible or do I need fancier equipment?

    Accepted Solution

    Yes it is  very possible I have done it many times with my hotel clients.  You can purchase another wireless access point and configure it as a repeater as long as you use the same SSID. The key is to you use the SAME SSID  for all your wireless access points to communicate with each other.
