    Is there a way to connect to a specific wireless router if all the routers have the same SSID? I had a program in Windows that allowed me to see all the routers and their MAC addresses. I could then connect to a specific router with its MAC address. Is this possible in OSX?

    Thanks

    if you have leopard you can option-click the airport menu and it will show you the MAC addresses and the corresponding SSIDs :)

    If you don't have leopard you can try a program called KisMAC that will list all the SSIDs available and can show their MACs.

    I am able to do what you suggested but it still only shows one access point when I know there are ~12 with the same name. Is there a way to make them all show up so that I select the access point I want to connect to?

    I downloaded istumbler but it is very very unstable.
