Multiple Wireless Logins on Same laptop

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?cmlnaHRjb2FzdG5vdmljZQ==?=, Oct 11, 2006.

  1. My laptop connects wirelessly using wep. I can log-on and connect to the
    internet as admin. I can log-on and connect to the internet as another user.
    However, I cannot log-on as both users and have internet connectivity to
    both. I can log-out of one, switch users, and the other will have
    connectivity.

    Is this an XP issue, or is my wireless router level unable to assign two
    different IPs to users on the same computer? DI-624 router.

  2. The router will only provide one IP per adapter regardless of who is logged
    onto the computer. XP does not support having two users logged onto the
    computer at the same time. After logging on a user could supply different
    credentials in order to establish some other kind of connection - eg. VPN.

    The "Internet" has no real concept of who you are, the Internet does know
    about your computer however. You may visit a site on the Internet and log
    into that site as anyone you like, this does not generally require a
    specific IP address. You can be logged into a number of sites using
    different user names and passwords at the same time, I regularly do this.
    Perhaps if you explained what you are trying to do we could better explain
    how to accomplish your goals.

  4. Thanks. That probably saved me a couple of hours of frustration.
