Multiple Airport express’es – should they use the same SSID?
Posted on 2013-11-08
I come from the PC world and am used to configuring wireless access points many times. However I had to do an Airport Express and Airport Extreme at the same time within the same household.
This was actually harder for me as you have to use a utility to configure, never the less it’s not hard to pick up.
However one question, are they designed to have the same SSID name?
In some houses I do this, and set them on a different channel so the residents only have to worry about 1 SSID and password.
However with the Airport express and extreme, in this case I’m not sure if I should give them the same SSID as they will be reasonably close to each other.
I was thinking maybe easier to give them different names and just tell the residents so use whichever is strongest depending on which room they are in.
Welcome opinions on this.
