Your SSID is essentially the "USERNAME" of the router... like my SSID is: wilson54g ... and i disabled the wep-key... hope that helped...

I need internet on my dsi


Well, have you done the homework?

1. DSI needs WiFi, ie, wireless internet. Do you have a wireless router or wireless modem router in your place?
2. If yes, have you enabled the wireless radio in the router. This can be done by opening up the router options by typing the IP Address of the router (it should be somewhere written in the router itself) and login. If you don't know the password, google your model number and you will get all information like default ip address, login etc. If possible download the manual from the manufacturer website and go through it to familiarize the options. (If you have an apple router, you will need "airport utility"..google).
3. Once logged in as "admin", look for "wireless" options (Manual will help you), enable "radio", "ssid", note down the ssid name, and for troubleshooting purposes, leave the security "off/disabled". Save/apply changes.
4. Make sure wireless "G" is selected or a mode thats compatible with wireless "G" (go through the options, mostly default option will suffice). If this is in another page, again, save or apply changes.
5. Reboot the router, wait for a couple of minutes till the lights for internet and wireless appears.
6. From DSI, search for available networks, find the ssid name that you have noted down and click connect.
7. Hopefully, it should connect, otherwise, you may have to manually enter DSI IP Adress, subnet mask (255.255.255.0), gateway and dns servers (both router IP Adress). If your router address is, say 192.168.1.1, then give dsi an ip adress 192.168.1.xx where xx is a number between 2 and 255. That is, what ever ur router ip address is, just change the last digits to anything under 255, excluding the router address. Now try again, hopefully everything should be settled.
8. Look into DSI manual to see whether it supports wpa/wpa2 security or just WEP. You may also have to take into consideration any other devices that connect to router wirelessy, like laptops, smart phones, tablets etc. If all of them supports wpa/wpa2, go back to router options and select that security, create password, write it down. Otherwise select "WEP" encrryption. (The point to remember here is the lowest common denominator, ie, if DSI supports only WEP, selecting WPA/WPA2 will be useless, as DSI will not connect, even if it sees the SSID.
9. Save changes, reboot router, wait for lights to steady.
10. From DSI, again select your SSID name from available networks (just to make things easier, shut down DSI, restart to disconnect earlier connections), it will ask for password or both password and security type. If DSi supports WPA/WPA2, and ur security is set as such, and DSI is not connecting, play with the options, if any, like "WPA only", WPA2 only" WPA/WPA2" and try to connect.

You should succeed with this much details. Good luck

Can't figure out (SSID) Name and WEP


usualy written on the bootom of your router, if not, go to your routers control panel, they should be in there, yoiu go into this by entering your routers ip address in your browser. if you do not know your routers ip addy, run cmd.exe and type ipconfig, its ip address is the one next to gateway.

Even though i know my routers ip adress when i go to type it in it says internet explorer cannot find page as in it doesn't even exist now i have a sonic wall router that i need to buy a netgear thing that...


Well, first let me give you some computer info.
Even if you know your ip address and try it on IE, you are just pinging yourself (sending info to it and it will reply back, those info are just tests). What you need to do is go to your netgear address " http://192.168.0.1/ " Username: superuser or admin (if one don't work try the other) password: password (default). When you get in, that is where you can change your SSID (name for internet) and password/key.

Try this first.
I don't have a xobx for my reasons of hating halo, but my thought is on the main menu (if xbox does have that) there should be a network setting. Try resetting your internet.

Ps3 error code 80711008 and wpa


OK for your WPA you can check the security key by accessing the router http://192.168.1.1 .. password is by default "admin" and username is blank...go to the "wireless" tab and check the ssid...under "wireless security" check the security key...if you have "wep" check the numbers in "key 1"....
now make sure that you connect to your own ssid and type the correct key...
and you are right , you need wlan to connect to the internet wirelessly...however , first make sure that you have internet working through the router..if not you will have to configure the router and for that you a computer connected to the router...

As for your IP address simple use this site http://www.ip-adress.com/ should be everything you need

My wii wont connect to the internet it found the box and i put the password in but it will not connect it also wont pass the conection test


1. Make sure you're connected to the internet via something other than the AirPort card (i.e. Ethernet). Also, make sure AirPort is on.

2. Turn on Internet Sharing:
* Go to System Preferences, click on the Sharing icon, then click on the Internet tab.
* Change the Share your connection from: pop-up to 'Built-in Ethernet.'
* Under the To computers using section, check the AirPort box.
* Click Airport options...
* Enter an easy name such as wii. Leave all the security options blank -- implementing security is an exercise left to the reader -- then click OK.
* Click Start in the Internet Sharing panel.

3. Gather Information:
* Open Terminal.app and type ifconfig en1. In the output...
* Look for: inet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx netmask ...
* Take note the IP Address associated with the first inet, negating values after the # (mine was 10.0.2.1; yours may be different).
* Type dig. Near the bottom of this output will be SERVER: followed by an IP address. This will be the DNS server you will use for your wii.

4. Configure the wii:
* Select a connection to edit.
* Choose Manual Setup.
* Enter the following parameters:
* SSID: wii (or whatever you chose in step one)
* Auto-obtain IP Address: No
* IP Address: Take the first IP Address you obtained earlier, and make the last digit different. i.e., mine could be 10.0.2.4 (10.0.2.1 was original)
* Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
* Default router: The original IP Address, unchanged. (10.0.2.1)
* Auto-obtain DNS: No
* Primary DNS: your DNS SERVER from the dig output.
* Secondary DNS: leave as 000.000.000.000
* Test your connection at the top of the screen. hope it works

Wii wireless connection



On your computer Open an Internet explorer and type the router IP address which would be either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1

Look for the SSID and write it down.
Also write down the type of encryption you are using. WAP, WEP, or none.
Also write down the security Passphrase.

Also you will need the IP address, in Windows click on Start, Run and enter 'cmd" in the run box.

At the command line type "ipconfig" and record the IP address

On the wii, You should be able to have the wii look for a Wireless Access Point. If that does not work try the Manual Setup in the Internet Connections menu.

Enter SSID
Enter Type of Encryption.
Enter Security Passphrase
Enter IP address
MTU value is not required. Nintendo recommends 1500 if you are having issues.
