 In our house we have 2 wireless access points, one in the basement and one
 on the second floor, to provide coverage for the whole house. By default
 these are both set to the same SSID.

 Connecting to the access point down here seems to work fine. I click on
 the SSID that shows the stronger signal and it goes through and says it's
 connected. But when I'd click on the network icon in the deskbar, it would
 show me connected to the wrong one. The one I did NOT click on. But when I
 actually opened Network Preferences and click on the Network drop down to
 list the available access points, it would show me connected to the
 correct one.

 The upstairs one shows the weaker signal, and the downstairs the
 stronger... in both images. So you can see the two disagreeing on which
 WAP I'm connected to.
