Linksys with "sub"network

April 20, 2011 at 13:44:34
Specs: Windows 7
RCN tech installed my wireless internet service 2 weeks ago. There are 2 distinct networks to which I can connect; one with the network name I assigned, and the other with the same network name followed by the number "2". What's the deal? This seems weird to me. Did the tech guy make some mistake? Lastly, is this something that should concern me?
Thanks.

perhaps this is a dual band setup? One at 2.4ghz and one at 5ghz?

It's a Linksys E1000 Wireless-N Router; 2.4 GHz Band Fast Ethernet (10/1000) ports. It does have WPA and WPA2 listed under the "securities features" on the back of the box.

wpa and wpa2 are wireless encryption standards. Not related to your issue.

Connect to one network and post the results of a ipconfig /all
Then connect to the 2nd network and do the same so I can compare the two.
