As a point of clarification: The setup that you're describing isn't 
multiple WiFi routers, it's multiple WiFi Access Points.

I think that's generally the best way to deploy wireless networks, but 
the distinction is important.  Access Points, as opposed to routers, are 
merely bridges to a standard Ethernet LAN.  They don't run DHCP, or 
provide NAT, or route packets at all.  Most WiFi routers can be 
configured this way by a) giving each a unique LAN address b) disabling 
the WAN port c) disabling DHCP d) connecting Ethernet to one of the LAN 
switch ports and nothing to the WAN port and e) configuring the same 
ESSID and security for WiFi.
