Ive set the second one up with the same SSID and password etc and I have it on a different channel (6 compared to the Thomson 11) but when I move from one end of the house to the other the devices stay attached to the their original connections which is usually the Thomson at the far end of the house.
If I change the SSID of the second router they can connect to it with no problem but thats not what I want to do.
So my question is how do I have the devices (laptops, asus tablet and N1) switch between them ? Is that what they actually do (switch between two routers depending on the signal strength) ? Or should I see nothing but the bars go up on the device to say its now connected to the second one ?
The Thomson is set to 192.168.1.254 with its DHCP pool being 192.168.1.64-253 and Ive assigned a static-ip being 192.168.1.2 for the Linksys.
The Linksys is set up as Static-IP with:
Internet IP Address 192.168.1.2
local IP Addtress 192.168.1.2
and Ive done nothing to the ports (I did a full reset of the Linksys before starting all this)
