How does this exactly look like? Will both APs operate on the same channel? Normally you would want to operate each AP on a seperate channel to avaid interference. But if you use two different channels, you would have to switch between these two channels all the time on your host AP. And I wonder how feasible this is (especially regarding performance issues)?
