    Hi, I jsut wanted to confirm a question i have- At my friends house the
    other day, a few of use were there doing homework on our laptops using her
    wireless connection. The little icon on the bottom right corner of my task
    bar says I am conected to the internet but it says wireless network
    connection 6 (****** her network name here).. SO what does the number '6'
    mean? does it mean that there are 6 people using this connection? I have
    only gone there once so I cant recall if there were 5 or 6 of us there. THis
    is just a curious question
    thanks for your help

  2. Hi
    It is just an id it could be Connection Jill if Microsoft decided to use
    names and not numbers.
    Changing it, or resetting is a cumbersome and can be risky process, leave it
    as is functionally it is of No consequence.
