How to connect to wifi? step 2

- In the "Network Name" you type the name of the SSID (the SSID is the name used to identify a wireless network to which you want to connect).

- For Network Authentication, it moves to "Shared. "

- For "Data encryption", it moves to "WEP".
The "network key" may be provided with the connection. It must ask the vendor that handles the network in question. You have maybe even set you on the access point or router.
If you do not use it, skip this step. Here it is a 128-bit WEP key:

It says, " Type the

This is the identifying name for the network being serviced by the router. This name is established when the wireless network was set up. If you have not set up the router for wireless operation, you will need to go in as an administrator and set up the wireless network. This includes giving the network a name (SSID) (you decide what this will be).
If you need more help, let me know. I'll need to know the make and model of the router. Thanks.

It will not connect to the internet at all now it tells me that there is no access point in range and to check my SSid setting what is that

so that means your game console is using wireless connection. it's not detecting the wireless equipment(usually a wireless router) that it's connecting to. SSID is the name of the wireless network of the wireless router or access point. SSID is like an identification, so that your game console or wireless computer if they are connecting to the right equipment and not to your neighbor..

if you have other computers that are wireless and those are working right, it means the problem is on the game console.. try to power cycle the devices, turn off the modem, router or access point, computers and game console.. wait 1 minute, then turn on the modem first, router or access point next, then computers and game console..

Using your Internet browser, you can access the Router’s Web-Based
Advanced User Interface. In your browser, type “” (do
not type in anything else such as “http://” or “www”) then press the
“Enter” key.
You will see the Router’s home page in your browser window.
Clicking on the header of the “Wireless” tab will take you to the
“Wireless” header page. From this page, the Router’s wireless radio
can be enabled or disabled (the default setting is enabled). Under the
“Wireless” tab, there are links that allow you to make changes to the
wireless network settings.

Changing the Wireless Network Name (SSID)
To identify your wireless network, a name called the SSID (Service
Set Identifier) is used. The default SSID of the Router is “belkin54g”.
You can change this to anything you want to or you can leave it
unchanged. If there are other wireless networks operating in your
area, you will want to make sure that your SSID is unique (does not match that of another wireless network in the area). To change the SSID, type in the SSID that you want to use in the “SSID” field (1) and click “Apply Changes”
(2). The change is immediate. If you make a change to the SSID, your wireless-equipped computers may also need to be reconfigured to connect to your new network name. Refer to the documentation of your wireless network adapter for information on making this change.
