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.

Easiest way is by connecting to the router by its IP address from a web browser and going into the configuration and renaming it.

The SSID can be changed on the router when you reset the router. You have to change all of your wireless devices to the new SSID before they can work on your wireless system.

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.

What does the SSID look like?


The default SSID for linksys is Linksysxxxxx. "xxxxx" will be your model number. If you changed your SSID, then it will be whatever you changed it to.

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?

I bought a belkin router. the SSID:was Belkin_251ADC but some how it changed to TASHA-PC_NETWORK. That is now keeping me out of my wireless computer. How do i change it back to normal


Go into the DOS prompt and type "ipconfig". Note the gateway ip settings. Enter this number into the browser's URL field. It should take you to the routers home page where you can change the 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.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access including configuring the SSID, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

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.

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.
