Same Wireless connection for 2 Laptops.

  birdface 17:08 07 Apr 2009

Hi.My 2 Grand Daughters use the same wireless router connection,
Would they be better to use different user names or just share the one.
Maybe not explaining it right.At the moment both use my daughters connection that I installed when setting up the Router.Would I be better also setting up a connection on their names or does it not matter.Or will both using the same connection slow it down in any way.

I thought that I should ask as I am not sure what is best.

“Same Wireless connection for 2 Laptops”

You can only have one (1) SSID network name per router, so there is no need to change the

router Network Name

You can have as much as 64 wirelesses devices connected at the same time to the same router

SSID Network name with out any problems

With both using the system at the same time will slow it down but they will not notice any big

drop in speed .

Thanks.I had never used a router before so just put my Daughters name on it.So adding one or two other connections onto the router for my Grand Daughters will not make much difference.Just use the one connection and let them use that.
Thank you for your advice it was appreciated.
