I have this thing that keeps bugging me...
One of my PCs, HTPC, is connected to the router via both WiFi and a cable. It works fine and it somehow even knows the network name for the Ethernet connection, Minas Tirith (usually it's only for WiFi connections). Maybe I renamed it in regedit at some point, don't remember. And in the network centre it understands that both are connected to the same rounter and shows it as such:
My other PC, M18X, is also connected to the same router via WiFi and a cable. however, it treats the connections as separate. Why is that? And how can I merge them?
Note that I've renamed the network from Network 8, which it was previously, to Minas Tirith in regedit.
Also here's what my router sees (Technicolor model):
Note that for some reason it doesn't see the Ethernet connection from M18X even though the PC gets internet access even if I turn off WiFi. I've restarted the devices several times.
Also both PCs are on the same homegroup.
