    I have multiple routers at home (one main, the rest in bridge mode) with the same SSID but sometimes I notice there's a lag when my mobile devices switch from one AP to the next. All routers use a different radio channel (e.g. Router 1 is 149, Router 2 144, Router 3 140), so would it be better if they all operate under the same channel? I've always differentiated them to minimise interference but I always based that upon what I read on setting up your OWN router to avoid interference with OTHER people's routers.

    dont use 1 channel for the three wireless routers, since you will be creating your own interference definitely not good.

    wireless switching is highly dependent on the client hardware, some smartphone do it better than others.

    unless you're into serious networking stuff, you don't really need so many features. I'm happy with my TPlink Archer C7. It has good range and stable connection.
