the first user will authenticate. the second user (different IP addy than
the first) will also be forced to authenticate, but the moment his
authentication passes, he'll be let in and the first user will be locked
out. as the MAC address (which would be the router's) is now bound to a
different IP address.
it'd leave you with the same pink slip though. :)
