    They have different ips on their local network, but are connected to the same router/modem. Modems don't open a new external port for each user inside the network, that would be insane for larger networks.

    They are probably just siblings or friends connecting from the same house, no need to worry, unless something else is causing suspicion.

    ok what bothers me is that i dont understand how the modem/router can keep track of who is who.

    anybody can point me in the right direction?

    it goes against the little i know about networks

    i can kind of understand if it were tcp, maybe the router can keep track of packets with a stateful inspection, but with udp?
    it can do the same???
