Out of the box your SSID should be linksys

You can find your ssid and change it by logging into the router interface, and checking the wifi settings. You will have to be connected with an Ethernet cable or use a computer that is already connected to your wifi network.

Start by getting the ip address of the router:
1.Press the "windows"+"R" keys (this will open the "Run" dialog box)
2.Enter "CMD" in the Run window, and press ok
3.In the Command Prompt window enter the following command "ipconfig" and press enter
4. locate the Ethernet adapter or local area connection if using an Ethernet cable. If you are using a wifi connection, you want to locate the wireless Ethernet connection.
5.Under one of those headings you want to locate the "Default Gateway" address. It will most likely be similar to one of the following: or
6.Open a web browser and enter the address you found under the default gateway.
7.You will get a login page for your router. Usually the login formation is as follows:
admin/leave the password blank
9.Once you have logged in you want to locate the wifi/wireless menu on the page.
10.Here you will find the SSID of your wifi network

Finding router ssid

Depends on the router you have, if it is a Linksys or Cisco you can try to log into by opening your browser and going to this address, it is your router, this is the default router address for all Linksys and Cisco routers. Once you log into your router, then pick Connectivity from the menu and the SSID is listed on then BASIC Tab. If you have another brand just google SSID and the brand and it will tell you what address to use to use. BTW -- If your router has a password then you'll need to know that also to get into the router to see the SSID.

Another option is you are not in a place with a lot of them is just use any wireless device and have it look for networks in your range, the name of the various networks that pop up in that list is the SSID of the routers.

Once you get into your router you can change the SSID to something you'll remember.

How to change the SSID & Password on Belkin.122 wireless router.

Grandkids should see SSID on their computer if it is being broadcast by your modem ( you probably have modem/ router) if they don't see SSID , your modem may have broadcast SSID set to off. If they can see it, have them enter your password. Passwords are case sensative .

Wireless ssid not showing in some laptops and mobiles -dlink router

The D-Link wireless router may have the SSID broadcast turned off.
In this case only computers that have wireless connection to the D-Link will show the SSID.
If you know the SSID you can enter the SSID manually in the wireless card settings in the laptop/computer.
Turn on SSID broadcast in the D-Link wireless settings.

I need help to find my ssid and password for wifi

The easiest way to find your SSID is to look on your wireless router. The default SSID -- the one it came configured with from the factory -- is always located on the bottom or rear of the router. If the SSID has been changed from the default or if you don't have physical access to the wireless router, you can find the SSID from a Windows 7 computer with Wi-Fi support.

I have a Cisco E1000 N Router. Is it possible to have multiple SSIDs? for example, Can I have a network SSID for inside my home for multiple computers/printers and then another SSID for guests?

The SSID (Service set Identifier) is the NAME you give the wireless network (the Name of the router) and you can only have one.. BUT you can have a seperate password (key) for guests to access the router.

What is an ssid please?

An SSID is the public name of a wireless network. All of the wireless devices on a WLAN must employ the same SSID in order to communicate with each other.
This SSID is established when the router is installed. If you do not know the SSID, you must reset the router and redefine the network and a new SSID.

Netflix update asking for ssid no.

SSID - Service Set Identifyer

The SSID is a secret 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.

go in your dlinks settings it by default always set to the routers name, you computer should detect the router in an area of networks, if the update is looking for an SSID # look on the sticker on the router it should say it there

What is a ssid# and where do i find it

Service set identifier, or SSID

Service set identifier, or SSID, is a name that identifies a particular 802.11 wireless LAN. A client device receives broadcast messages from all access points within range advertising their SSIDs. The client device can then either manually or automatically—based on configuration—select the network with which to associate. The SSID can be up to 32 characters long. As the SSID displays to users, it normally consists of human-readable characters. However, the standard does not require this. The SSID is defined as a sequence of 1–32 octets each of which may take any value.

It is legitimate for multiple access points to share the same SSID if they provide access to the same network as part of an extended service set.

Some wireless access points support broadcasting multiple SSIDs, allowing the creation of Virtual Access Points, partitioning a single physical access point into several virtual access points, each of which can have a different set of security and network settings. This is not yet part of the 802.11 standard
