Two wireless routers - Same SSID
Posted on 2012-03-14
We currently have one wireless router downstairs - however when wireless is needed upstairs the signal is either very weak, or network can't be found.
So, we're looking to implement another wireless access for upstairs. I need it so, in the situation where I'm connected to the downstairs router, let's say "router 1" and if i were to go upstairs, it would seamlessly connect to "router 2".
From what i've researched, the SSID and security settings will have to be identical and the channel will have to differ. Is there anything else i will have to change/look out for - for instance will the second router have to be the exact make/model.
Thanks in advance,
