Showing the SSID only means that the wireless network is within the range of the NVR. You need to configure the NVR with the password (or network-key) to allow it to connect to that SSID.

Testimonial: "Good day If I connect the NVR through Monitor, there will be nothing related to network only IP addresses and when I set them manually I cannot connect through a network cable even if I use manual IP addresses. Moreover, the SSID that is showing cannot be accessed, I have tried all type of passwords, The only way is to access it manually which is not working, I believe there is a malfunction in the network card. Thanks for trying to help me, Regards Rasool"

How do I find my SSID?


The SSID of a wireless network is determined by the wireless access point (AP) that you are using. Some AP's have a label on the bottom that give the SSID and Key for that particular network. Some AP's broadcast the SSID and that can be read off the air when you attempt to connect. Those are the 'available' networks that show up in the wireless network list. If you are trying to connect to a network that is not your own, you need to get the connection data, including the SSID and network key, from the person providing the network. There are open networks that broadcast their SSID and don't require any key, but those networks are not secure and data transmitted on them can be stolen.

Hi,

The SSID (Service Set IDentifier) is a token which identifies a 802.11 (Wi-Fi) network. The SSID is a 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.

SSID access points continuously broadcast radio signals which are received by client machines if enabled. Based on the automatic or manual configuration, the client can connect to the access point. A SSID is generally 32 bit long, but when displayed to the user, it is projected into a human readable ASCII format. Multiple access points can possibly share same SSID if they are for the same wireless network. Many wireless access points support broadcasting multiple SSIDs, permitting the formation of Virtual Access Points. Such Virtual Access Points partition a single physical access point into many logical access points, each of which can have a special set of security and network settings.
SSID Security Issues

Every user of the network must configure the SSID into their system. If the network administrator seeks to lock a user out of the network, the administrator must change the SSID of the network, which will require reconfiguration of the SSID on every network node. Some 802.11 NICs allow you to configure several SSIDs at one time.

ssid example SSID
Default SSID's

Most 802.11 access point vendors allow the use of an SSID of "any" to enable an 802.11 NIC to connect to any 802.11 network. This is known to work with wireless equipment from Buffalo Technologies, Cisco, D-Link, Enterasys, Intermec, Lucent, and Proxim. Other default SSID's include "tsunami", "101", "RoamAbout Default Network Name", "Default SSID", and "Compaq".

Every time a client connects to the wireless network, the SSID is communicated in plain text format, which can easily be sniffed by eavesdropper using sniffing applications like Kismet. Hence, additional security techniques are required to be implemented in order to enhance the wireless security.

I want to hook up to wireless it says error on ssid what is that


ssid is the name of your wireless network.
if your setting up this manually then make sure you are typing the SSID name of your wireless network correctly. it is also case sensitive.
if your SSID is hidden it won't be detected by find access point.
if your SSID is not hidden just use the find access point and your wii should automatically detect or ask you to choose which wireless network you wish to connect to.
it will prompt you for a password if your wireless network is encrypted.

I do not know what ssid is


An SSID is the name of a wireless local area network (WLAN). Your Wireless Network.

All wireless devices on a WLAN must employ the same SSID in order to communicate with each other.

The SSID on wireless clients can be set either manually, by entering the SSID into the client network settings, or automatically, by leaving the SSID unspecified or blank. A network administrator often uses a public SSID, that is set on the access point and broadcast to all wireless devices in range. Some newer wireless access points disable the automatic SSID broadcast feature in an attempt to improve network security.

SSIDs are case sensitive text strings. The SSID is a sequence of alphanumeric characters (letters or numbers). SSIDs have a maximum length of 32 characters.

Hope this helps!

It will not connect to the internet at all now it tells me that there is no access point in range and to check my SSid setting what is that


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..

Connectivity issue router to panassonic wireless camera


If your camera does not support encryption protection then that is a problem beause it allows unauthorised people to access your wireless access point, Internet and computers on your LAN.
There is a couple of things you can do but it it is not perfect.
1. Change youe SSID to something other that the default name.
2. Make sure you put a password on your admin setup
3. Turn off SSID broadcast.
4. Set up MAC address filtering on your access point and only allow MAC address of only your devices/wireless adapter cards to communicate with your wireless access point.

The UPnP refers to plug & play USB connection for transferring images to the computer.

The best way to avoid not having to turn off encryption is to transfer your photos by the camera cable or remove the memory card and insert it into a USB memory card reader and connect it to your computer.

I have a laptop run Vesta trying to set wireless connection to HP Potosmart C4385 print using ad hoc network setup. When selecting Ad Hoc connection in the printer setup it saids it can not find it or...


For this specific issue about installing the printer to a wireless connection. You need to install the software first as a usb connection. After the successful installation of the usb connection then you can add a device and it should work.

Step one: Gather the necessary hardware and information Follow the procedure below before obtaining your wireless network:
  1. Obtain your network SSID and WEP. To simplify this process, press the Wireless button on the all-in-one, and select Restore Network Defaults . This turns wireless off and sets the all-in-one's SSID to hpsetup .
  2. Press the Wireless button to turn wireless back on. Look for hpsetup when you select your network.
  3. Make sure that wireless is enabled on the all-in-one.
  4. Make sure that the computer that will be using the all-in-one has access to the router/access point.
You will need the following to set up the product on a wireless network:
  • A wireless 802.11 network that includes a wireless access point.
  • A desktop computer or laptop with wireless networking support or a network interface card (NIC).
  • Broadband Internet access is required for some features of the HP software to function. Cable Internet or DSL are examples of Broadband Internet access. NOTE: If you connect the unit on a wireless network that has Internet access, HP recommends that you use a wireless router (access point or base station) that uses Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
  • The network name, or Service Set Identifier (SSID). NOTE: The SSID is obtained from the wireless router or access point using the embedded web server on the router. See the documentation provided with the access point for more information.
  • The Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) key or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) passphrase, if needed. CAUTION: To prevent other users from accessing your wireless network, HP strongly recommends using a password or passphrase and a unique SSID to your access point. Your access point might have been shipped with a default SSID, which can be accessed by other users using the same default SSID. For more information on how to change the SSID, see the documentation that came with your access point. NOTE: The WEP key and WPA passphrase are obtained from the wireless router or access point using the embedded web server on the router. See the documentation provided with the access point for more information.Some access points provide more than one WEP key. Use the first WEP key (index 1) when setting up the wireless network.
  • If the network is set up with an Apple AirPort base station and you are using a password instead of WEP HEX or WEP ASCII to access this network, you need to get the equivalent WEP key. See the documentation that came with the Apple AirPort base station for more information.
  • If IP address filtering is set up, verify that the unit address is listed.
  • If MAC address filtering is set up, verify that the unit address is listed. NOTE: HP cannot set up or change the SSID, WEP key or WPA passphrase. This information is required before connecting the HP All-in-One to the wireless network.
Step two: Connect to an integrated wireless WLAN 802.11 network Follow the procedure to connect the unit to the wireless infrastructure network:
  1. Insert the software CD.
  2. Click Install .
  3. Click Next on the Please Allow All HP Install Wizard Processes screen.
  4. Select Easy Install on the Choose Easy Install or Advanced Install screen.
  5. Select Through the Network on the Connection Type screen. Figure 2: Connection Type screen c01160788.jpg
  6. When it doesn’t find your device, click Next . Figure 3: Using Network Setup c01164746.jpg
  7. Plug in your device via USB (it will tell you when to disconnect later). Figure 4: Making a connection to your all-in-one c01160790.jpg
  8. Select your network from the list, and click Next . Figure 5: Wireless Network Setup c01160791.jpg
  9. Enter your WEP key (if applicable). Figure 6: Specifying your network security settings c01160792.jpg
  10. Once it has completed connecting to the network, click Next . Figure 7: Network connecting completed c01160793.jpg
  11. Disconnect the USB cable from the computer and the All-in-One . Figure 8: Disconnecting the USB cable c01160794.jpg
  12. Click Finish to complete the software installation process. Figure 9: Software installation complete c01160795.jpg
