    Hi all,

    I've got a WRT54GS running DD-WRT mega, and I recently I had to move it to a new location in my house. Now the coverage isn't so hot in other areas. I have another WRT54G(S maybe - can't remember) and I was thinking of adding is as just an AP. I have 3 wireless clients (2 laptops, 1 iPod Touch), and many wired clients. The new AP will be wired to the first.

    I have a few questions:

    1) Should I set both AP to the same or different channel?

    2) Should I set both AP to the same or different SSID?

    I'd like the laptops to be able to seamlessly move around and pick the best AP available to them. Is this possible?
