The maximum number of concurrent clients can associate to a WLAN is 100. If you have two APs in the area, you should be ok with one SSID.

Each radio can only support up to 100 clients. There are two radios on AP230, so in theory an AP can accept 200 associations. However, in order to get a decent throughput, you would not want to put more than 25 clients on a radio. In your case you have two APs to server 100 clients, so you still can get a decent throughput (25 clients per radio).

If you have more than 100 clients, it would not matter if you have 1 or 2 SSID because the limit is on the radio. I made a mistake when I typed per WLAN. It is per radio.
