I was wondering if both meant the same thing, and if there's any difference between the two, what they were, because as I see it, it's pretty much the same thing. Saying "post under my real name" should mean the same thing as "post with my real name". Am I wrong?

For example:

I am posting under my real name on the English Language Learners stackexchange.


They do mean the same thing. I think under is more commonly used in this context. You could also substitute the word using and that would be fine as well.
