You simply just have to let your wii know what you call your router. could be "bobsrouter" (for example) or whatever you wish to name your router. (SSID = service set identification) you can view/change this by viewing your routers settings.

You probably have to cycle your network. SSID stands for service set identifier, which is basically a network name. It's how your private wireless network knows that a device is allowed to be on it, essentially. To fix this problem:
1) Unplug both your modem and your wireless router.
2) Leave them sit, powered off, for a few minutes.
3) Plug the modem back in, allowing it to fully boot for a few minutes.
4) Plug the route back in after the modem has had a chance to boot.
5) It may not be necessary, but at this point I would advise rechecking or resetting the wireless connection settings on your Wii. This is really a precautionary step, but will definitely increase your odds of success. Try connecting again.
6) If these steps don't work, completely erase your connection settings and create them again from scratch, making sure to double check that all the settings you are entering are EXACTLY the same as they appear on your router.

SOURCE: Trying to connect to netflix via Wii: error

You need first to have a wireless router for your wii to receive a signal, once this is set up you need to call your cable provider for the ssid#. This will link your wii to the router so that you can access internet/ netflix. Another way to do this if you don't have a router is to connect your wii directly into you bradband modem using an ethernet cable. I hope this helps.

How do I confirm SSID. I reset parental controls and It can't find access point


If you are unable to find the access point itself this is likely due to a configuration within your router. There are a couple of possibilities here. If you have a dual channel router and have only configured the 5 GHz frequencies your Wii will not find them. If you have hidden your SSID (chosen not to broadcast it) this of course will also prevent it from being seen... and in the case of most Wii models; it will also prevent you from even finding it manually.

There is no option to disconnect the wireless capabilities of the Wii, so again, it is likely something in your router's config.

My WII is saying unable to find access point please confirm SSID. What does that mean


Dear Friend,
First, you need to identified you wireless name from your wireless modem such as "HOME-229". Then after identifying the right SSID (service set identifier), enter the name in your WII follow by the right password out of your Wireless Modem. Also, make sure that your SSID in your wireless modem is broadcasting and not hiding. Some devices will simple not access online if the SSID is not broadcasting.

Good Luck!
