I have had a real problem receiving a strong wifi signal in all parts of my house. I set up two wired Access points with 2 additional wifi routers to solve the problem. It works fairly well but I am wondering how best name the SSIDs. Each router has at least 2 potential 2.4 and 5 ghz as well as guest networks. My question is should you name them all the same as the main wifi router SSIDs of name them differently?

Thank you
They should all be the same. Are all the wifi acess points the same manufacturer, make and model?

The same Manufacturer ASUS but not the same models. The main unit RT-AC5300, the 2 Access Points RT-AC66U and a RT-AC1200.
