Not sure if this is a question for super user or not, and if it isn't then I'll gladly delete and repost in the correct area...
But I was wondering why wireless networks are defined based upon the networks name and not an id?
To better explain:
I recently set up a family members wireless network to use the same network name as my own network name but with a different password.. What I found was all my devices/laptops/computers that were connected to my network would then try to connect to this new network when in range but would fail as the password wasn't correct for the network.
So why is it not possible to have two wireless networks with the same name?
