Two wireless routers were purchased at the same time. The SSID is the same for both: NETGEAR49. The passwords are different. One router was installed in location A. The other router was installed in location B, 65 miles away. Set up went swimmingly. Problem: I cannot access the Internet at location B with the devices that use the location A router. How to I get around the SSIDs being the same on each router so I can use the wifi at both locations?

Did you try forgetting the network and reconnecting as a test?

The simplest solution is to change your network's ssid to some unique name that will not likely be replicated somewhere else. You can keep your password.

Thanks rubberman, I'll give that a try.
