The SSID is the wireless network name. It is much like the workgroup name in Windows networking. If the SSID of the AP or the wireless router is WLAN (default) each client will search for an access point and associate with it. The default configuration for the F5D6020 PCMCIA card is to connect to an SSID named "ANY". This means the Access Point does not look for a specific SSID. If that is changed to a specific name other than ANY or WLAN, then the card will not connect to WLAN because it is being "told" to connect to a specific Access Point with a specific name.

What is a SSID


Hi there.

The SSID simply put is the name of a wireless network for example, when your connect to a network on your laptop the name that pops up that is the networks SSID

Wireless networks can be set up in stealth, meaning that they do not transmit their SSID and thus the user wishing to connect must know the SSID exactly.

I am guessing this question is in relation to connecting a Nintendo Wii to the internet? If so just enter the network name for the SSID as it appears on your computer and the password and relevant information.

You need to remove all your existing preferred wireless connection from your Network and sharing Center by clicking the manage wireless networks and removing each one by right-clicking each and select remove.

In xp, open view available networks and click the change advanced settings and remove all existing preferred networks then try to connect again to the wireless network you're trying to connect.

Hiya, Iv installed the wireless but the wireless network connection on my laptop is not connected and it says there is no wireless networks were found in range.


Hmm... If your router seems to be operating like it should (it really doesn't even need an internet connection for the laptop to connect), and you just installed it, my guess would be that the SSID broadcast is disabled. You would have to log into your router and check the wireless section to see if it is. If so, you can leave it that way (which is actually what I would recommend, for security) and setup the network manually on your laptop, or enable the broadcast and connect it like you normally would. If you decide to leave it disabled, then you will need to make a network connection manually on your laptop. You will need to put in the SSID, WEP/WPA passkey (if you have one), and you will have to make sure that you have the option "connect even if this device is not broadcasting" checked. Once you do that, it should work. When your SSID isn't broadcasting, its making itself pretty much invisible to other devices. You can learn more about this here, if you wish.

........."Scenario: your neighbor is puzzled that his broadband performance is slow.He gets an expert like you to come and check whether his system is working properly. He is told "there's your problem - the people next door are using your connection and they seem to be downloading stuff using Kazaa and Limewire all day and all night. . the problem with that is if the two of you have the same brand of router (say Netgear), with default settings, then it won't know which is your "NETGEAR" network, and which is their "NETGEAR" network.That is why (apart from a little added security) I say to change the SSID."
"All wireless routers I am aware of have the facility to change the SSID (it usually defaults to something like "NETGEAR", or "3COM").But it is still a good idea to secure your own network - and change the SSID. If you don't change the SSID, then any neighbours with the same brand of router will have the same SSID, and your laptops won't usually know which one they are accessing. And setting the router to not broadcast the SSID is good too. But it is still a good idea to secure your own network - and change the SSID.

Windows Vista won't connect to my actiontec


If you have disabled broadcasting of the SSID you will havw to tell Vista to connect even if the SSID is not being broadcast.
There is a checkbox on the wireless connection pannel for doing that and there is also that option when you setup the connection. If the SSID is not broadcasting Vista will not connect until you tell it to. You can check if that's the problem by enabling the SSID broadcast and seeing if it connects. If yes, then find that checkbox (sorry, I'm not on my Vista system and don't know all the steps to get there offhand) and mark it; then disable the router from broadcasting again. It should connect every time after that.

D-Link DI-524 4 Port connection Problem.


Perhaps the router is not broadcasting its SSID, therefore is invisible to would be tappers. Type 192.168.0.1 into a browser on a computer directly wired to the router, leave the username blank, if you havent changed it, the password is admin by default. Once logged in check that wireless is enabled and that you are broadcasting the ssid, you may want to setup/change security settings for the wireless connection at this time also.

Can't connect to internet


The issue could be with the wifi connection that your wifi adapter is connected to. If your running a windows based system, go to the system tray and right click on your wifi connection symbol (SSID) and see which network your connected to. Every LAN has its own unique name of their Local area network (LAN), if its not displaying your LAN SSID name but a different SSID name then thats the problem. If thats the case, then once again right click on the wifi connection symbol in the system tray and change the wifi connection to your SSID for "view available connection". Your wifi adapter could be picking up a wifi connection in your area and you do not have access to their LAN.
