Even if you set them the same it won't help -that- much. Most WiFi devices will cling on for dear life to the AP they are connected to. So you could end up being sat right next to one router with your phone or whatever still connected to the one the other side of the house. This applies to any scenario where you're hacking together a bunch of disparate components rather than setting up a proper solution.
Proper mesh networking stuff (like the Ubiquiti stuff I mentioned above) monitors the signal level of your device on each AP, and nudges you onto the most appropriate one. (This is a gross simplification of what actually happens before any pedantry is forthcoming.)
