I've spend some time on google and on wirelessforums.org trying to find an answer but no luck so far.
I live in France and most of the internet providers offer a backup connection for when you're away from home which means that most of the routers with a wifi device display two networks, one which is specific to the router and a generic one, used as an hotspot.
Every specific network has its own name but the generic ones share the same one. They are all called FreeWifi or SFR wifi etc... (it depends on the ISP)
I know for a fact that there are several routers sending these "generic" networks next to my dorm but it seems that some of them are actually somehow broken since they don't let you access the log in page for the hotspots.
With my android phone I can easily pick the network I want even though they have the same name (but a different BSSID) and it works just fine.
But on windows 7, I can't select the network I want since they all are listed under one network in the network and sharing menu.
Is there a way for me to connect to these networks manually as I do on android?
Xirrius Wi-Fi inspector manages to locate all the networks one by one but it's not a connection software and windows keeps on listing them all under the same name, which is a real PITA.
Is there a software I can use or a way to make windows differentiate the networks with the same name?
Sorry for my rather poor english, I hope I've been clear enough though.
