I've a home computer network network - a couple of PC's, a Smart TV, the usual stuff. Where possible I prefer to use cables to wire everything together, but obviously with tablet devices this isn't always possible.
There are a couple of areas in the house that don't get a good WiFi signal so I've bought a second WiFi access point. I can wire this back into the house network using cables I've already set up.
So that the tablet devices can connect at in any room in the house I'm going to set up the second access point to use the same SSID.
What I'm not sure about is my choice of WiFi Channel. I know that there will be places in the house that will see both access points, so should the second access point use the same Channel as my existing WiFi access point or should I pick something different?
What's worrying me is:
If I use the same channel for both access points will they interfere with each other?
If I pick different channels will the tablets get confused as I take them around the house?
