Wifi Hotspots

I have 4 netgear prosafe wireless access points that I want to spread across the office (3 of them WG102 and 1 a WG103)

I want to set it up so that when a person connects to one of them using a pre-defined shared key it will allow them to move between the hotspots.

Please can someone give me an idea on how I achieve this. At the moment they are setup but a user gets prompted to log into each access point even though they have the same SSID and shared key.

Thanks

Personally I would set them up each with unique SSID's like ourwlan01, ourwlan02, etc... It should make things easier down the road if you need to troubleshoot connectivity issues as well as make it so they dont have to manually login each time it changes as they move around (that is once they have successfully connected at least once to each or the AP's).

hi
I have done this,
I setup all the AP with the same ssid, password, etc, now every time every where they go, they connect directly without hassle.
But the other APs was configured for VIP, so that's why different ssid and password was inputted.

Followed initial advice from the link in naming all the SSID's the same and make the passwords the same and all seems to be working fine.
