In the wii connection settings what does SSID mean


SSID is the name of your wireless network! This is to allow it to connect to the internet!

Im trying too put the internet on my PSP 3000... but on the psp it said the SSID isnt supported...help plzz


Hi there... There is a point where you enter manually the SSID while trying to connect to your wireless network right? That point is the cue. The SSID you put in your PSP must be THE SAME (ultimately) with the NETWORK NAME, in order to communicate to it directly. Say, if your network is named MYHOME, your SSID in your PSP should also be MYHOME and putting it MY HOME (with space) will result to error. That's apart from the network password (WEP key) that you input in the next field...
Hope this helps...

I have inserted my Netflix Watch Instantly DVD into the WII and I have wireless internet service at home, the console asked me to enter the SSID number so I figured this was my wireless network password...


Hello,

The SSID(network name) is actually the name you give the router. When you are on a wireless device and look at available wireless routers in range, the name you see is the SSID. You can see the SSID in multiple ways,

Login to your router admin page by going to the router ip address(usually 192.168.1.1) and log in. After you log in, go to the wireless settings and confirm your SSID.

If you have a wireless device like a laptop, you can view all available wireless routers in range and you should see yours show up. Check what the name of it is(SSID) and use that and input it into your Wii.

For additional help, read my tech article on how to connect your Wii to the internet. Click here to read it.

Get stuck changing net settings, ie ssid...


if your home is set up with wireless modem or router and your computers are connected wirelessly its pretty simple to set up. more likely you or someone who set it up probably set it up securely meaning with security key and password. So you do have to know few things about your home network. like what is the name of your home network (SSID). the security setting of your home network. and finally the password of your network. if you don't know these things about your home network you will not be able to get connected wirelessly. but if you do have these info on hand read along....

JUST MAKE SURE YOU DO HAVE A WIRELESS HOME NETWORK... it definitely wont work if you don't have a wireless setup and u are trying to connect wirelessly. people overlook this no brainer.

1) go to Settings
2) Network Settings
3) Internet Connection Setting. confirm on "O.K."
4) easy *it may or may not give you a message reading "checking network configuration2_bing.gif"
5) wireless

from this point on you need to know few things about your network.....

6) scan -- once scanned it'll give you other wirelss access point for you home network and some other near your home along with few information such as SSID (which is what you set your network to be -- i.e. "the jones" or "linksys" or "summer home" or "my connection" etc etc) SECURITY (this is the password you set up your network with) SIGNAL STRENGHT (usually your network will be the strongest among your neighbors since you are closer to your router)
7) highlight your network and press x . (you should know what it is) selecting on the other network will probably not do you any good since it'll probably be all locked with password and such and so should yours be.
8) SSID which means service set identifier basically mean the name of your network. if your home network is set up with security and password your home network will not show up under SSID (this is one of the things you need to know about your home network. if you don't know ask the person who set up your home network)
9) on WLAN SECURITY SETTING2_bing.gif page (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up) -- most people i deal with have a WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK security password yours may be different so choose the one that you used.
10) WPA KEY - which basically means password. input the password you used to set up your home network (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up)
**it'll give you "checking network configuration"
11) if you input all the correct info you should get the "setting list" screen
12) press "X" to save the setting
13) do the connection test and if all things were entered correctly you should have success.

all this seems complicated just reading but if you follow it step by step its easy. you just need to know the name of your home network, the home network security setting, and the password of your home network.

on the other hand if you are setting up a wired connection it makes it a whole lot simpler. you don't need to know your network name, security key, and password.

make sure you have the ethernet cable plugged in to your ps3 and to your modem or router

1) go to Settings
2) Network Settings
3) Internet Connection Setting. confirm on "O.K."
4) easy *it may or may not give you a message reading "checking network configuration2_bing.gif"
5) wired
6) auto-detect
7) automatic -- for the IP address setting
8) do not set
8) automatic -- DNS setting
9) automatic -- MTU
10) do not set -- PROXY SERVER
11) ENABLE -- UPNP
save connection setting
test connection

if your home network is set up and u got the ps3 connected it should work

Im trying to connect to the wireless connection and it keeps asking me for SSID NUMBER AND IT KEEPS GIVING ME ERROR 51330


The error is due to the fact that you either leave the SSID number blank or are giving it an incorrect number. I think you may be in the incorrect system setting. I don't have my Wii in front of me but I'm fairly certain that, unless you're internet is password protected, You shouldn't have to post any information. I think there may be a chance that you are attempting to connect to a network that isn't your own. Just a guess, but I'd say it may be a pretty good guess.
What I am certain about is that the SSID (which is just a fancy name for "network name") should be titled on your Wii as whatever your home network is titled. For example, if your wireless system is called linksys, then your SSID should be titled linksys. These can be case sensitive so keep that in mind.
I hope this helps!

      You will need to know the Service Set Identifier (SSID) of your wireless network. Also make sure the WAP or wireless router is set to broadcast the SSID; otherwise, the SSID will NOT appear on the PlayStation 3 scan results.
      If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network (i.e., wireless router) settings.
    • WEP or WPA Security Key
      If your wireless network access is security-enabled (encrypted) from open access, you will need to know your WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) security key or password
      If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network settings.
    • MAC address
      You may need to enter the Media Access Control address (MAC address) of your PlayStation 3 into your WAP if it is required by your network settings.

Cannot enable wma playback. don 't know ssid number


You could only enable your wma playback by connecting your psp to internet, ssid simply means wireless network name. If you are trying to connect to internet you will be ask for ssid which means that you should be in a wifi area to connect you to the available network name.
