You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
Is there any computer online using the router.
check the IP address on that computer.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.

What is SSID and what to write to the SSID


SSID is the name of the wifi network you want to connect to.For example if you have a netgear router and you haven't personalized the SSID, then the SSID is probably NETGEAR. If you renamed it to Dhimiter Dema then the SSID is now Dhimiter Dema.

Where do i find the ssid on the wii


You have set up your Wii and are anxious to begin playing games.
But when testing your Wi-Fi connection to your Wii, you are receiving errors.
The error is "Your wireless network is not within range or incompatible to the Wii" What should you do?
One of your first steps is to check your SSID. An SSID, or service set identifier, is a 32-character code that specifies the access point of your wireless network.
The SSID also acts as the name of your wireless network.
This ID is defined on your network's router software.
The SSID for your Wi-Fi network and the Wii settings must be in sync for the Wii to function properly.

Go to your computer and log in to your Internet router settings.
Find the wireless settings information for your router.

Locate the SSID field. This field displays the name of your wireless network.
Carefully write the SSID on a piece of paper.
Make sure that you are copying the SSID exactly as displayed in the SSID field.
Pay attention to capital letters, spaces or special characters.
Go to your Wii.
On the Wii main menu, click on the "Wii" button in the lower left corner.
The Wii Settings screen is displayed.

Click on the "Wii Settings" icon on the right side of the screen.
Click on the blue arrow on the right side of the screen to move to page 2 of the Wii Settings options.
Scroll down and click on the "Internet" button.
Click on "Connection Settings."
Click on your wireless connection.
Click on "Manual Setup."
Click the blue arrow to find the SSID field.
Carefully compare the SSID entered in the Wii's SSID Settings field to the SSID that you wrote down from your router settings.
If these SSIDs are not identical, change the Wii SSID to match your network's SSID.
If the SSIDs match, the SSID is not the problem with your Wii setup.
Contact Nintendo Technical Support for additional troubleshooting information.

Whats ssid mean.


Hi

SSID- Service Set Identifier

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

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.
