Overlapping Wireless access Points

Last Modified: 2015-03-21
I am working on creating a collection of overlapping wireless access points in my office to allow better coverage for our users.

I have found several well written instructions on how to do so, but they all provide one step that I admidt leaves me confused:

"configure all Access Points to different hopping sequences of the same hopping set"

...I have no Idea what this means!

Is this a setting in a wireless access point?

When they say "Use the same SSID on each" for example, I have done this and know what an SSID is...

Here, I am lost!
