    I'll just cut to the chase.

    Two different networks with a different geological locations.
    Same SSID.
    Different passwords.

    iDevices and MacBook freak out whenever I try to move between them.

    Is there a way I can configure my iDevices, and MacBook to both of the WPA keys?

    Edit: 500+ views, and not a single reply. :(

    ssid

    My opinion is that your problem is quite simple - the SSID is meant to be a unique identifier of a wireless network, and so the machines are getting confused that you have two different wpa keys for the same ssid.

    Personally I would do one of two things

    1 change the WPA key so that both are the same, that way wherever you are the machine will see the SSID and login with the key it has,

    or

    2, change one of the SSID's so that they are registered in your devices as different wireless networks.

    my first answer post so be gentle with me :D
