    I have more than 5000 sq. ft home and have some dead places other end of the house. Now I am looking for Range Extender/Repeater to boost signal. My primary wireless router is Motorola Surfboard SBG6580 and Secondary Linksys E3000 (planning to update firmware to DD-WRT).

    So I wanted something such that I can roam between the two routers without switching SSID (use single SSID name for primary and secondary DD-WRT routers) and connect automatically to whichever the best signal (or) strength router.

    In work place we have same thing like that single wireless SSID name which automatically connect wireless SSID from one end to another end of the building.

    If Yes, How can I do that? I did not find answer in dd-wrt forum. I am not techy guy.

    Please let me explain in details.

    Disable DHCP server on second router, connect it using LAN port (not WAN), setup wireless network exactly the same (SSID, security, mode, channel).
