what is an ssid mean

SSID Stands for "Service Set Identifier." An SSID is a unique ID that consists of 32 characters and is used for naming wireless networks. When multiple wireless networks overlap in a certain location, SSIDs make sure that data gets sent to the correct destination.
The SSID is different than the name that is assigned to a wireless router. For example, the administrator of a wireless network may set the name of the router, or base station, to "Office." This will be the name that users see when browsing available wireless networks, but the SSID is a different 32 character string that ensures the network name is different from other nearby networks.
Each packet sent over a wireless network includes the SSID, which ensures that the data being sent over the air arrives at the correct location. Without service set identifiers, sending and receiving data in a location with multiple wireless networks would be chaotic and unpredictable to say the least.

i want ssid for idea net setter wireless adapter

A SSID is the name that identifies your wireless network. A wireless adapter connected to a computer will not have a SSID. Your wireless router will have one. If your setting up a new wireless network then you will want to look for the SSID with the brand name of your router or ISP name plus the last 4-5 digits of the wireless router serial number located on a sticker on the device.

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.
