Hi there,

if you have different SSID's  with the same chanell,
that are near to each other and at the same strength of each other.

Would this cause interference with each other.

for example..

SSID's                     Channel
car                              11
truck                            11
cycle                            11

Even though they are advertising different SSID's.

Yes.  For best results leave some channels open in between.

SSID's                     Channel
car                              1
truck                            6
cycle                            11

You can see the bandwidth overlap in the graphs on this page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_802.11  Also note that it says that Wifi was created to connect cash registers in stores.  Wasn't really designed for how it's being used.
