2 Comcast Routers/Modems, each w/ their own Apple Airport Extreme (Same Wifi Network)

Disclaimer: I'm know enough about wifi and home networks to be dangerous.

 

Due to the area I'm trying to cover with wifi and the structure / layout of my home, I have two separate Comcast routers/modems on separate levels. Both routers/modems are in Bridge Mode. I'm wondering if I can use the following setup and connect each to an Apple Airport as such:

 

Basement Comcast router/modem > hard wired > Apple Airport Extreme Time Capsule (tower)

Main Level Comcast router/modem > hard wired > Apple Airport Extreme (802.11n, 4th generation I think, flat)

 

I want to use one wifi network (broadcasted from each respective Airport Extreme). I believe, the hard wiring to each Airport Extreme will allow the fastest and strongest possible wifi broadcast signal from each Airport. Each Comcast Router/Modem should have its own respective dynamic IP address. How do I set this up so I use one wifi network name/password being broadcasted from each Airport Extreme?

 

For what it is worth, on the third floor I have a Apple Airport Express that is just extending the same wifi network from the main level.

 

If this isn't how you would set this up, what suggestions would you give?
