SSID essentially is the name of your wireless network.
ie. If your wireless network was called: only_mums@home
Just enter that in & your PS3 will connect to that network.

How can i fix dir 615 ssid stop broadcasting issue?

Step 1: Open your web browser and type in the IP address of the router ( by default).
Step 2: Enter the username (admin) and password
Step 3: Under Setup Select the Wireless tab
Step 4: On Wireless Tab - Select Invisible if you do not want the SSID of your wireless network to be broadcasted by the DIR-615. If Invisible is selected, the SSID of the DIR-615 will not be seen by Site Survey utilities so your wireless clients will have to know the SSID of your DIR-615 in order to connect to it.

How do i setup my wireless linksys model wcg200?

The wireless settings that you need to take note of are:
a. SSID - this is the name of your wireless network
b. SSID Broadcast - an indication if your SSID is showing on the list of networks available
c. Wireless Security - serves as the password for your wireless network

To check the wireless settings on the Linksys router, follow the steps below.
Checking the Wireless Settings on the Linksys Router
Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here. If you are using a Mac computer to access the web-based setup page, click here.
Step 2:
When the router's web-based setup page appears, click Wireless.
4678-009.png Step 3:
Look for Wireless Network Name (SSID). If it's still set to "linksys", change it to something unique then click 6-4680.jpg NOTE: Take note if SSID Broadcast is Enabled or Disabled. If it is Enabled, it means your SSID will show among the list of wireless networks available when any wireless device will search for a network to connect to. If it is Disabled, it will not be visible.

Step 4:
Click the Wireless Security subtab and take note of the current Security Mode.
If Security Mode is set to WEP:
4678-007.png If Security Mode is set to WPA:
4678-013.png You can change your WPA shared key if you want to personalize it. It should be a minimum of eight and a maximum of 63 characters long.
Step 5:

How do I put my signal private

Go to security setting and generate a WAP/WEP key.
Look in your manual, it shows you step by step.
You login to router with a browser, and then simply go to security section, generate the key, save in notepad, save all setting in router, reboot router, Then attempt to login to the WiFi SSID, and it will ask you for effectively a Password, WEP?WAP Key, simply copy paste that number you saved in notepad, and you will now be able to connect.
