Distributing wireless

I have a huge warehouse and 4 APs.

Each AP can only cover about a quarter of the warehouse so I will place all 4 appropriately.  They will be wired to the same network.

Question... do I give each AP it's own wireless SSID?

No, each AP should have the same SSID as the "Home" router.

You're welcome.

Also, take a look at my previous post.  These things are awesome.  Very affordable and easy to configure.

What should happen is that a person could, in theory have a laptop and move around the warehouse and seamlessly move from AP to AP with no interruption of service.

Right... but the laptop won't immediately jump to the best signal... it will jump once the signal gets weak enough.  Thought was that maybe they could manage this manually.
