The SSID (network name) is what you have named your network. To set the SSID, log in to the router and go to the Wireless section. Here you will find the SSID area, and you can name your network pretty much any thing you want. Logging in to the router usually involves going to http://192.168.1.1 and supplying the correct login information.

Sir

Checking or verifying the wireless settings of your Linksys Cable Gateway is important when connecting wireless devices to your network. This is the best route to take if you are unsure of your gateway's wireless settings.
The wireless settings that you need to take note of are:
  • SSID
  • SSID Broadcast
  • Wireless Security
To check the wireless settings on the Linksys gateway follow the steps below:
Step 1:
Access the gateway's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here. If you are using a Maccomputer to access the cable gateway's web-based setup page, click here.
Step 2:
Click the Wireless tab.

Step 3:
Look for Wireless Network Name (SSID). It is recommended to change the SSID to something unique.

Step 4:
Click the Wireless Security sub-tab and take note of the current Wireless Encryption Level and the Wireless SSID Broadcast if it is set to Enable or Disable.

If Wireless Encryption Level is set to No Encryption, this means that the wireless security on the gateway is disabled.
If Wireless Encryption Level is set to 64 Bit Encryption or 128 Bit Encryption, check the value under Default Key and take note of the Wireless WEP Key that corresponds to it.

I formatted my hard drive and can't connect wirelessly.


Hi,

If you've lost your ssid, then the best way to connect is to reset the router. That linksys router has a reset button on the back of it. Hold in for about 10 seconds, and it will reset it back to the factory defaults. Then login to it and reset your ssid.

Good Luck

My WRT300N Linksys router shows all lights, I've hit the reset button onece, but I can not get online without plugging the cable directly into my computer.


Since you hit the reset button on the router, it will go back to default settings.

By default, the SSID is linksys and the wireless security is disabled.

So on the wireless network connections on your computer, you should see linksys and then just connect to it.

However, it is advisable to change the default SSID and to enable the wireless security.

Follow this link to change the SSID.
Follow this link to enable wireless security.

Good luck!

Trying to use belkin router with linksys adapter cards..do i need new drivers


You need to configure the Belkin router with a SSID and WAP or WEP encryption, Then install the Linksys adapter driver in the computer and then configure the Linksys adapter with the Belkin router settings (ie. the SSID and encryption) before the Linksys can communicate eith the Belkin router.

No conncections


SSID is the network name for your routers network. If you use a linksys router, then the default SSID is Linksys (don't know what it is for others, but would be easy to find out from their website, and the manual for the router.).

SSID's should always be changed, and secruity encryption enabled, when yu set up a wireless network.
