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.

Got new internet service. Now I can't connect the internet to the wii!! I need a SSID and I don't where I get that from


Hello! SSID stands for wireless network name. This means that whenever you wanted to connect to your router, you need to know your SSID to join your network. This works very similar in connecting a new laptop to your router. Below is an example in checking the wireless network a Windows 7 Operating System is connected to. "RABBIT and maculit" are examples of SSID. I hope this helps.

What is a ssid


SSID stands for Service Set Identifier, and it is basically the name of your wireless network. I guess you are trying to set up your DS lite for internet. If you have tried to set it up by detecting network, and nothing came up, you will need to get your SSID from your network. Hope this helps!
