Wifi setup

Will it cause any harm if I setup two wifi routers (not AP connecting to a central controller) in my office, same SSID number and password but in different channel ?

Two wifi will be placed in each end in the office and in a user laptop travel from one end to another end, it will also get connected to the wifi.

Thx

No harm.  It will work just fine.  But during the hand over from one AP to the other, the user may experience a brief disconnect.  But if it is just normal web browsing, then the brief disconnect will be negligible.

Probably not.  But it is not good practice.  Better to set up the traveling computer so that it automatically attaches to either access point, but configure the access points with different SSIDs and passwords.

That's not a good idea.
You will have some problems. each router provide a different IP address and you will be disconnected from the website \ server \ during downloading as soon as your device switch to different IP on the second router and you have to resume / restart the download or refresh your connection.

I think the best option is to setup two routers in one network or Set Up a Wireless Range Extender.

I agree with the comments that it will not be a big problem.

Alternative solution:  Good quality commercial wireless router near the center of the office with ample range to cover the whole office. We do this and it is  much simpler.
