Open a web browser and enter "192.168.0.1".

Enter the username and password.

Under the wireless properties there should be a box with the SSID.

Change what is in it to what you like and apply the new settings at the bottom of the page.

Change ssid on eircom


To change your SSID, connect your router to your PC with an ethernet cable, go to your web browser (Intenet Explorer, Forefox, Chrome etc) and type 192.168.1.254, and press return.

This will open the control panel for the router.
Select 'EXPERT MODE' from the menu on the right, and accept the warning prompt. Then click on 'CONNECTION' and the 'WIRELESS' on the menu on the right.

In the main window you can then change the SSID for your network.

You can also change some of the other options in this window such as enabling closed mode (whether to broadcast your SSID or not), change security protocol, password, etc.

I dont know my SSID code


The wireless router has a default SSID usually it is the router manufacrurer's name, you should change this SSID to something different to make your wireless router secure.
Connect a LAN cable from the router to the LAN port on your computer, open a browser and enter the router's configuration URL and go to the wireless settings to change the SSID.

I have changed my SSID number and now cannot use my printer wirelessly. How do I change the number?


> I have changed my SSID number
> how do I change the number?

Huh?

Or, do you mean that you need to use the buttons and the LCD panel on the HP printer to specify the "new" SSID?

Change my printers ssid name


The SSID stands for "Service Set Identifier" it is the name of your wireless network name. The SSID is not usually required in configuring a printer.
The SSID is configured in the router's wireless settings.

I dont know how to change the SSID Name and WEP Key.


You have to change it in the printer settings, not in the router! Otherwise you'll lose connectivity in all the other computers that use this router.
The SSID is the name you gave to your wireless network, and the WEP key is the password you set for your wireless connection.

Hw will I get a new SSS ID if my previous SSS ID


How did you lose a SSID?
The wireless router has a default SSID and you should change the default SSID when you configure the wireless setting.
If you go into the router's wireless setting you can view the SSID and/or change it to something else.
The only way you can lose this setting is to reset the router to the factory defaults, and if this is the case just change the SSID to something you like.

I have an acer aspire 5735, when i try to connect to the internet it brings up an error and tells me i am tring to establish a second broadband connection. this has only started a couple of days ago but i...


........."Scenario: your neighbor is puzzled that his broadband performance is slow.He gets an expert like you to come and check whether his system is working properly. He is told "there's your problem - the people next door are using your connection and they seem to be downloading stuff using Kazaa and Limewire all day and all night. . the problem with that is if the two of you have the same brand of router (say Netgear), with default settings, then it won't know which is your "NETGEAR" network, and which is their "NETGEAR" network.That is why (apart from a little added security) I say to change the SSID."
"All wireless routers I am aware of have the facility to change the SSID (it usually defaults to something like "NETGEAR", or "3COM").But it is still a good idea to secure your own network - and change the SSID. If you don't change the SSID, then any neighbours with the same brand of router will have the same SSID, and your laptops won't usually know which one they are accessing. And setting the router to not broadcast the SSID is good too. But it is still a good idea to secure your own network - and change the SSID.

HOW TO RENAME MY BELKIN ROUTER


Using the WEB BASED INTERFACE.
Using your Internet browser, you can access the Router’s Web-Based
Advanced User Interface. In your browser, type “192.168.2.1” (do
not type in anything else such as “http://” or “www”) then press the
“Enter” key.
You will see the Router’s home page in your browser window.
Clicking on the header of the “Wireless” tab will take you to the
“Wireless” header page. From this page, the Router’s wireless radio
can be enabled or disabled (the default setting is enabled). Under the
“Wireless” tab, there are links that allow you to make changes to the
wireless network settings.

Changing the Wireless Network Name (SSID)
To identify your wireless network, a name called the SSID (Service
Set Identifier) is used. The default SSID of the Router is “belkin54g”.
You can change this to anything you want to or you can leave it
unchanged. If there are other wireless networks operating in your
area, you will want to make sure that your SSID is unique (does not match that of another wireless network in the area). To change the SSID, type in the SSID that you want to use in the “SSID” field (1) and click “Apply Changes”
(2). The change is immediate. If you make a change to the SSID, your wireless-equipped computers may also need to be reconfigured to connect to your new network name. Refer to the documentation of your wireless network adapter for information on making this change.

Change name


You would like to change the SSID to something else?

The SSID is the name that is broadcasted, the name that you see when you connect to your network.

  1. Log into the web configuration of your router at http://my.router, or the default address http://192.168.2.1. The Enter Network Password login prompt appears.

  2. Type the following text in the user name and password fields: "admin".


  3)
In the "Wireless" setup tab:

- Change the default SSID to something meaningful to you, but something that does not give anyone else any hints about your network. For example, using your name or your residence's street address as the SSID is not what you'd call a bright idea.
