  • Can I setup two Wifi access points in the same room that use the same frequency?

    I have an Apple Airport Express and a TP-link TD-W8901G 54M Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router. I want to create a 802.11n 2.4GHz WPA2-encrypted wireless network with my Airport Express for my laptops to connect to. I also want to create a 802.11g 2.4GHz WEP-encrypted wireless network with my TP-link Wireless Modem-Router for my Nintendo DS to connect to. The two devices must be in the same room, but I can distance them from each other with a long Ethernet cable connecting the Airport Express to my TP-link Wireless Modem-Router

    Is this possible, or will the two wireless networks interfere with each other, since they are using the same frequency and there are other wireless networks around my house. What is the minimum distance that I should have between these two devices.

    Note: I'm using the 802.11n wireless network because I need the range and speed improvements of the new Wifi standard. I also want to protect my network with the best security, WPA2.
    I'm using the 802.11g wireless network because Nintendo DS doesn't support WPA2 encryption, it only supports WEP.
    I can't put WEP-encryption on my Airport Express because my speed will then be limited to 54 Mbit/s.
