i have 4 floors in my house. i have a broadband connection on ground floor connected to a dlink modem router. untill a few days ago there were two more routers (belkin and another belkin(one switch is connected to belkin which is going to 5 other pc's) were connected to this dlink via ethernet. they were each on a different floor. the problem was that it was causing a lot of confusion as each one of them was broadcasting its own ssid. and for some reason i wasn't able to properly acces computers on other floors, the conction would break or some unidentifiable problem.
the i decided to scratch it all. i removed the two belkins and connected the switch directly ti dlink and buy three netgear wirekess range exteders. i set these up but they were still having four diff ssid. it stopped working after two days.

any solutions using the hardware i currently have.
i need to use remote admin and acces softwares on a server. there are many pc's and few phones and just two tablets.(r admin and softwares to be used just on pc's)

Does your any of the router supports repeater functionality? Check after-ddwrt option also.

sorry, i don't no stuff about networking and have no idea what these are and how to check on them

i'll try. i can't do that right now as i'm not i my home.
i googled about repeater function , most results say that it's the same as range extending( i.e there will still be two networks with two seperate SSID's).

Even I searched on google, and didn't come to a conclusion. Some sites claim single SSID, some not.

Nevertheless, since I haven't used it, I won't comment further, before I try it, which I'll do today.

I don't think so. As it says to connect both routers via wires, how will it result in range extension?

in my earlier setup all the 3 routers were hooked up by cable but the problem was that they were behaving as diff network. the article says it will be a single network with two routers therefore more range
