I have a Thomson TG585 v7 router that can be access via a webbrowser on ipaddres
s http://192.168.1.254/ I have various computers connected to it via wireless or ethernet in some cases both and I've noticed that if they are connected via both then when I look at my home network via the webbrowser that both connections from one computer have different ipaddress but the same machine name.
So when I try to access the machine using the machine name how does it decide whether to use the wireless or wired connection ?
Should'nt each connection have a different name
(If you are wondering why I have both connections it is usually because they are on my laptop which can make use of faster wired connection in my office room, but has to use wireless connection everywhere else in house so both configured).
