Problem with doing it this way...
Plenty of drivers will not switch wireless channels seamlessly. E.g.
One wireless AP at front of house. One at back. Both on different channels
You connect to wifi at the front. Go to the back. Plenty of drivers will cling onto the wifi AP at the front of the house, even at 1mpbs & 1 bar even though the back AP has full signal now.
Plenty of drivers only switch AP when the signal literally completely goes.
BY using the same channel. These problematic drivers in experience will seamlessly switch access points as they SHOULD. E.g. connect at the front, go to back of the house, the drivers instantly switch to the better AP seamlessly.
HENCE I find that different channels cause more problems than it's worth.
So I vote for same channel, same SSID. Both will work though.
