Re: One visible SSID broadcasted by 2 routers?

said by ba1drick:

What I don't like is that I see that same SSID twice on the list of available connections.

I believe this is a 'feature' of your client WLAN connection software. For example, the included Windows client will show only one SSID by default if there are multiple APs sharing that SSID, while the wireless client software included with some wifi hardware and drivers will show you each BSSID (individual APs).

I'm not familiar with PCLOS, but you might try looking for a setting in the wireless config to turn that off if you want it off. If no such setting is available, then you may have to try another DE if you're so inclined.
