Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
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..
