For personal use I use a Linksys WRT610N to do the same. + 0 Votes As said above it should be possible OH Smeg 3 years ago You would however have to enter the Devices Setup and make sure that the different Ways to connect to it are bridged. Before buying I would look at the Instruction Manual for the device and see what it says in the Setup Side of things. You can get the Instruction Manual from the Device Makers Web Site. http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/linksys/E3000 Col + 0 Votes IP Churdoo 3 years ago This is more a question of IP than it is a question of wireless networks. I believe wireless is a layer 2 protocol, so as stated previously by Tobi and Smeg, if both nodes are in the same IP network, and you're not employing any particular functionality like wireless isolation or VLAN, etc. they will communicate. --C + 0 Votes The WLAN side of the router is a mac-layer bridge robo_dev 3 years ago As far as I know, most SOHO WLAN routers that support multiple SSIDs just dump them all into one network, as having multiple SSIDs allows you to run multiple authentication schemes all at once (e.g. WPA2, WEP, none) all based on SSID. It's a handy way to connect devices that support different authentication methods. For example, a Nintendo DS game console only supports WEP, but a Apple iPhone does WPA2, so both devices can connect by defining one SSID as the one for WEP and a different SSID to do WPA2. Otherwise you would be forced to use WEP on the iPhone. On many enterprise-class WLAN access points, you can allow multiple authentication types per SSID, but that can be very tricky to setup. By default, different SSIDs on these devices each go into a separate ethernet VLAN, but I digress... + 0 Votes You can share files frank_s Updated - 3 years ago I have a Linksys WRT600N which is an older dual band, simultaneous router similar to the E3000. And have connected to both bands at the same time and it's the same as connecting another RJ45 connector to the router. In other words both bands connect to the same network so you can share files. + 0 Votes that was sorta what I was saying, that you can share files robo_dev 3 years ago The wireless network side of the router is a mac-layer bridge. This means it's all one network, so any protocols that can talk to each other will talk to each other. + 0 Votes Yes you can Choppit 3 years ago By default they'll be part of the same logical network.
