    Just tried Angela's solution, still no detecting of WAPs, I'm thinking it's more to do with the TV than the router, as other wireless items (my phone) can connect

Have you tried resetting the router un plug the ethernet cord and push the little button in using a pin for about 15 seconds then plug the ethernet back up and wait until all the lights are back on then cut the tv back on and see if it connects.

Where do i find my ssid


It will be written on a label somewhere on your wireless router/access point, which is in most cases the box provided to you by your internet provider to let you access the internet.

You'll most likely be prompted for a password as well, this is also found on the same sticker.

Find ssid number for linksys model wrt54g


SID broadcast allows computers to quickly locate a new network and connect to it. In wireless home networks computers often use only the home network, which makes SSID broadcast unnecessary. Disabling SSID broadcast adds a bit of security to your wireless network, because computers won't be able to see your network's SSID.
Log into the router.
  1. Open your webbrowser and type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar. This is the default IP address of the browser.
  2. Type your login info in the login screen. Default: 'admin' (without quotes) in both fields.
  3. Go to Wireless > Basic Wireless Settings 'wireless
  4. Set SSID broadcast to 'disable'.
  5. Click Save Settings.
On the next page you will set a router password to prevent unwanted visitors from accessing your router setup.

Hi,

I think a functional explanation may be of some assistance to you.

The IP address is assigned to the server or client software, but not to the physical workstation which the software or device is installed.

D-Link and virtually every other provider uses IP addresses from a Private IP Address class, which is special class of IP addresses that is reserved for private local networks (not to be confused with Virtual Private Networks, or VPN).

The default IP address is 192.168.0.x and assigned automatically. The most common IP address in any local system is 192.168.0.1.

Over the years, I've found that it is unnecessary to manually TCP?IP settings unless the automatic settings or configuaration has failed When I do have to change the settings, the following are used on Local Area Networks (LANs):

IP Address 192.168.0.1
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
DNS Do not change
Gateway IP
Address None because the default should be 192.168.1.0 or whatever was
automatically assigned.

Some additional information that should assist you in better understanding a LAN.

The SSID (Service Set IDentifier) is a token which identifies a 802.11 (Wi-Fi) network. The SSID is a key which is set by the wireless network administrator. You must know the SSID to connect to a 802.11 wireless network. However, the SSID can be discovered by network sniffing/scanning. By default, the SSID is part of the packet header for every packet sent over the WLAN.

SSID access points continuously broadcast radio signals which are received by client machines if enabled. Based on the automatic or manual configuration, the client can connect to the access point. A SSID is generally 32 bit long, but when displayed to the user, it is projected into a human readable ASCII format. Multiple access points can possibly share the same SSID if they are for the same wireless network. Many wireless access points support broadcasting multiple SSIDs, permitting the formation of Virtual Access Points. Such Virtual Access Points partition a single physical access point into many logical access points, each of which can have a special set of security and network settings.

SSID Security Issues

Every user of the network must configure the SSID into their system. If the network administrator seeks to lock a user out of the network, the administrator must change the SSID of the network, which will require reconfiguration of the SSID on every network node. Some 802.11 NICs allow you to configure several SSIDs at one time.

Default SSID's

Most 802.11 access point vendors allow the use of an SSID of "any" to enable an 802.11 NIC to connect to any 802.11 network. This is known to work with wireless equipment from Buffalo Technologies, Cisco, D-Link, Enterasys, Intermec, Lucent, and Proxim. Other default SSID's include "tsunami", "101", "RoamAbout Default Network Name", "Default SSID", and "Compaq".

Every time a client connects to the wireless network, the SSID is communicated in plain text format, which can easily be sniffed by eavesdropper using sniffing applications like Kismet. Hence, additional security techniques are required to be implemented in order to enhance the wireless security.

All the best

Access point configuration


Access is easy to configure, you just need to understand basic setup you need to do and just have to find the same options on the configuration page of any wireless access point.

Things to setup.
1. Local IP Address ( You will get default 192.168.1.1 according to your device guide, still you can set different (not recommended, if not expert) )

2. Setup WAN IP-This could be dial up connection (PPPOE) or Internet IP Address provided by your internet provider.

3. Setup Wireless access point SSID, this is what you will find when you scan for wireless connection available

4. Setup security settings. You can setup WPA or WAP to protect security. Just need to select and assign key/password which you will be asked while connecting SSID

Follow the link for exact information on how to setup your Access Point

Need basic step-by-step instructions on how to install my router.


To Configure the Router with Internet Access
Connect to one of the wireless router/access point's LAN Ethernet ports, turn off its DHCP server, and give the wireless router a static IP on your LAN:
  1. Connect a PC directly to a LAN port on the wireless router with an Ethernet cable.
  2. Power on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Reboot the PC.
  4. Log in to the wireless router though a browser. (Usually 192.168.1.1, with User Name = admin and Password = password, unless you changed them from the defaults).
  5. Go to the LAN IP menu and disable the wireless access point’s DHCP server by unchecking Use router as DHCP server.
  6. Select LAN IP, and change the IP to 192.168.1.99.
  7. Click Apply to save the settings. You will lose the connection to the wireless router/access point , since its IP changed.
  8. Log in to the wireless router/access point with the URL: http://192.168.1.99
  9. Connect one of the wireless router's Local (LAN) ports to your existing network.
This completes the wireless router/access point configuration.
  • You can now log in to the wireless router/access point at its new address of http://192.168.1.99 and configure wireless features such as WEP and Access Control List
  • UPnP, DMZ, Port Forwarding, and Port Triggering are not used on the wireless router/access point, and it doesn't matter how they are configured.
  1. Configure the LAN IP address to be within the same subnet as your PCs.
    • Take care not to use an IP address already being used.
    • Limit the number of addresses in the DHCP range and assign an IP address outside of the range to the router you want to use as the Access Point.
  2. Disable DHCP on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Connect one of the LAN ports on the wireless router/access point to a LAN port on the Router.
  4. Configure the SSID and any security settings on the wireless PCs to match the wireless router/access point's SSID and security settings.
a. SSIDs must be the same on all wireless devices. (These are case-sensitive: netGEAR is not the same as NETGEAR.)
b. Tip: Make sure the wireless PCs can connect before configuring WEP, WPA-PSK, or other wireless encryption.

Sometimes i try to ping the wireless access point and i get the message 'Request time out',i receive this message even if im directly connected to the access point.what should i do


When you connect the computer directly to the access point, you might not be getting IP address on your computer.
You will need to assign a static IP address on your computer in the range of default IP address of the Access point.

Access point router and wireless router communication


You said that the router connected to the modem is acting like an access point. that means the DHCP server on that router must be disabled. The second router is connected to the first with the ethernet port. What you can do, you can enable the DHCP server on the first router and make the second router work as an access point.
so that both the computers will be in the same IP address range.
If they are already in the same IP address range then you can try to ping the second computer's IP address form the first computer.

Cannot log on to dwl2000ap


If the SSID changed to the default then you know that the router reset to the default settings and you should set your computer to automatically get its IP address via DHCP. I always set up my routers through a Wired connection first, just to setup the router and then go with the wireless. The default for the router should be 192.168.0.1 and subnet 255.255.255.0 . If the computer is set with a static IP address, change it to obtain an IP address automatically or the network card will not bother even looking for an address.
