Re: The best Mikrotik AP for 6 SSIDs?

I probably would choose for cAP ac: https://mikrotik.com/product/cap_ac
But it depends on a lot more than being able to broadcast 6 SSID's (this gives overhead...sure you need 6?).

Re: Is possible to set up a RBaCPGi-5acD2nD dual bands with one ssid?

Besides name and password, also security settings have to be equal. And make sure that you choose different channels (don't use auto, 1,6 or 11 on the 2G radio).

Roaming can be achieved by setting the optimum tranmission power (again, don't use auto). Set it as low as possible.
