The SSid is the "service set identifier", or the name used to identify a wireless network. The default name for most wireless routers is the word "default", unless you changed it when you setup your network. A device (a game console or a laptop), can not connect to a network unless you set the SSID to the same used on your network. If you have security enabled (and you should), you must also type in the password to connect to the network.
You might try having the game console in the same room as the router to ensure the distance from the unit is not an issue.

So that means your game console is using wireless connection. it's not detecting the wireless equipment(usually a wireless router) that it's connecting to. SSID is the name of the wireless network of the wireless router or access point. SSID is like an identification, so that your game console or wireless computer if they are connecting to the right equipment and not to your neighbor..

if you have other computers that are wireless and those are working right, it means the problem is on the game console.. try to power cycle the devices, turn off the modem, router or access point, computers and game console.. wait 1 minute, then turn on the modem first, router or access point next, then computers and game console..

I have a dsi xl. i have access it in the internet already. my problem is if keep saying point in range.one more thing i have the nintendo points cards but i dont know where to enter it?


To use the nintendo points, tap the dsi shop icon. It will take you to where you can buy games. Different games cost different amounts of points, some are free, some cost 500+ points. Select the option the buy the game(s) you want, it will prompt you for the Nintendo points card number at checkout, and will deduct those points, and download the game. You have to enter the card number each time you buy a downloadable game, it does not store the points value (at least it didn't as of December 2010).
You can go into settings, and set the dsi to connect if access point in range, and it will just connect when you choose internet. If you mean the access point says it's in range, but won't connect to the internet, you probably need to check to make sure you entered the SSID (name) correctly, the password correctly, and which type of encryption correctly (WEP, WPA PSK, etc). If you save the correct settings, and are in range, it will connect.

  • A WLAN access point or a wireless broadband router
  • Settings for the access point (SSID, WEP key, WPA key, etc. as specified when the access point was configured)
  • A network device, such as an ADSL/DSL modem or a cable modem.
  • An account with an Internet service provider
Hints
  • An access point is a device used to connect wirelessly to a network.
  • A router is necessary if a PC and the PSP™ system will be connected to the Internet at the same time. A router is a device that enables multiple devices to be connected to one Internet line.
  • SSID, WEP and WPA keys are types of wireless network information. This information may be required when connecting to an access point or a router.
  • User is responsible for Internet service fees.
Example of a network configuration Network equipment connection and setup methods vary depending on the equipment used.

require001.gif Common settings hr1.gif You can create network settings for use in connecting to the Internet through an access point and save them on the PSP™ system. You can save up to 10 connections.
