If the other user configured a different network connection, then
likely.  Obviously not all users would have the ability to reconfigure
network settings, so if you have setup your machine for multiple users,
you'd likely only give yourself access to change the main system
parameters.  These sorts of features are the ones that are ideal for
single user machines (which are the vast majority of home machines).
