add newer AC or N WAP to existing wireless network ?

I have an existing network, with (3) Netgear WAPs (N-class), WN802T.  I have some spotty coverage, and was thinking about adding two more, but perhaps a different Netgear model.  I want to use the same SSID for roaming.  Is there any difficulty mixing and matching models of Wireless AP?

Hi e_John,

 

Are your WN80T access points a version1 or version2?

 

Let me share the article below.  I would assume that most of the questions you might think of between the 802.11ac and 802.11n standards are found in it.  It would also introduce you to the WAC720 and WAC730 access points.
