I recently installed a Hawking HW2R1 Wireless Repeater to extend the range of our network in the office. Is there any way to set it up so that the signal it's broadcasting has the same SSID and WPA key as the primary network in the office without causing a conflict? Ideally someone would be able to walk from one end of the office to the other without having to disconnect from Work1 and connect to Work2. Thanks!

I can't see why you shouldn't be able to. I have multiple AP's throughout our buildings and all are using the same SSID. It's worth noting I have several different brand name AP's in production.

It is important you change the channels on the AP's so as to avoid interferance. So if you have only 3 AP's in your building, one at one end, one at the other, and one in the middle I'd go:

AP1: Channel 1
AP2: Channel 6
AP3, Channel 11

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
