If all the APs share the same SSID and security settings, that creates a roaming situation, and there's really no control you can exercise over which AP is chosen (at least I've never seen any, that would sort of defeat the purpose, right). In general, all APs are treated equally except for signal quality (the better, the more likely to be chosen). However, that doesn’t necessarily mean it will be the physically *closest* AP.
