    when i use windows to configure my wireless setting it only shows one name even though there might be multiple wifi routers with the same name.
    is there a way to show all the routers available even though the names are the same?
    want to connect to a linksys that is farther away than a linksys that is closer that wont allow me to access it.
    thanks in advance

    Why do you want to connect to a wifi router that's farther away? This will affect your connection with the network in a negative way.

    If you really want to connect to the other router you can right click on the wifi icon in the system tray. Then select 'Open Utility' and select the 'Site monitor' and click the advanced button. Now try and find the MAC-address of the router you want and double click it. I'm not sure if this will work but you can at least try.
