I've just replaced my Linksys WAG160N (what a pile of junk!) with a TP-LINK TD-W8960N.
The new router (which was a lot cheaper than the Linksys) is working perfectly but I have noticed a strange thing.
I have set the SSID of the router as 'TP-LINK'. If I hover the mouse pointer over the connection icon in the systray, however, the pop-up window shows:
Currently connected to: TP-LINK 2 (TP-LINK)
I just wonder where the '2' has come from?
The SSID of the Linksys router was just 'Linksys', and if I hovered the mouse over the connection icon the window just stated:
Currently connected to: Linksys.
There isn't a problem - but I'm just intrigued as to why the SSID of 'TP-LINK' has changed to 'TP-LINK 2 (TP-LINK)'.
Anyone have an explanation?
