Default Network with many wirless clients

Hey guys, I'm administrating a network with a high number of wireless clients. I'm wondering if there's a way to connect another wireless router and have the two routers pass clients between them, or if it's just better to add a different router and just assign users to different routers.

Any thoughts?

I don't think you can have the routers pass clients between them. However, if placed far enough apart (and set to different channels) you'll be able to name their SSID's the same and then the computers will connect to whichever one gives them the best signal. The users will also be able to walk around the workplace and connect to the other router without trouble.

Yea that is what we do at the University that I am at. It works wonders! Our entire campus is complete wireless. It is pretty impressive.
