Hi all,
I don't know, if it useful, but is it theoretically possible transmit the same data (SSID,BSSID etc.)  on the same frequency channel from all APs of the network (synchronize by central soft-server)  and transmit received packets without processing to the central server and process all data there to get better quality of received signals of the station  (Multiple Input), yes it will limit the throughput of the network to trough put  of one AP(and even more, because of performance of the central server ), but it could provide seamless coverage within the bounds of old IEEE802.11 b/g/n standards with WEP/WPA1/2-personal encryption or without it.

Sorry, my English is not enough to provide more details of my idea but hope the idea is quite clear...

Best regards,
