Hi. Open your web browser and type in the address bar 192.168.0.1 as if it is a website you want to visit. Just type those number - do not type anything else. Press go and you should be presented with a gatekeeper window asking you to type in the login name and password for the router. IF theay have npt been changed they will be admin and password respectively. If you changed the password then obviously type in the correct word.
You will then be presented with a web page that has all the router's internals open for modification. On the left hand side there will be an entrey called WAN, Wifi or Wireless setting (I haven't got one here sop I can't tell you the exact wording). Click on it and you will open a new page devoted solely to the wireless settings, security and channel etc. You should see a textbox with NetGear in it and it should be marked as SSID. This is where you change the name.
Change it, iclick apply at the bottom and then wait while the router changes the name. There may also be a confirm button or save button to press too , I can't remember.
You will probably find that you instantly lose your connection (Unless you are connected to the router by ethernet). Wait for a moment or two and then check that the NETGEAR SSID has disappeared from the list of available wifi spots available to you. Instead you should see the new name you have given it. Log in as before using the same password as before and that should be that.

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.

Open INTERNET EXPLORER and. In the URL address field, enter the IP address for your wireless router ( the DEFAULT GATEWAY. This information should be contained in your router's manual. If you cannot find it, enter "198.168.1.1" as the address. This is usually the default IP address for most routers.do not type "www" just the number

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.

Roku com enter codeXKWP


By default, the firewall on it should block all incoming connections from the WAN or internet network port (good thing). Make sure you do two things : 1. Change the default password on the router, and 2. secure your wireless using WPA2 for authentication and AES or TKIP for encryption. Also, rename your SSID to something that doesn't give away that fact that your router is a buffalo. I'm paranoid, so I donot broadcast my SSID...if you are too, then this is a good option.

What does Network SSID mean?


The SSID is the "service set" identification of a wireless network. This differentiates the networks so that individuals can log into the correct network (assuming there is more than one covering a location). Most wireless routers will come with a default SSID provided by the manufacturer.

My family has a newer router with both 2.4GHz and 5 GHz wireless network options. To reduce traffic on each band, we renamed the two networks to make it obvious which band any computer logged into. (Some devices couldn't see the 5 GHz band.)

I hope this helps.

Media streamer internet connection problems


This happened to me last night. I took my streamer to a friends house, but when i came back it was recognizing my SSID but not accepting my password. I don't know exactly what happened but i tried unhiding my SSID and redoing my password, but it still wouldn't work. ultimately I renamed my SSID, Password, and PSK. Then on my streamer I found my router through WPS. I just added the router PIN and it connected and brought everything up. Re- entered my password and was good to go.

We are trying to hook up the netflix to the wii. it is asking us for the ssid code, where do we find this code?


Your SSID is normally the name that was assigned to your router, either from the factory or it may have been renamed in initial setup. It's usually something along the lines of "2WIRE473" or "Linksys."

You may also need your WEP or WPA key if you've password protected your network.

How do I rename my network on a Belkin router


Please open the configuration page of your router by typing your router's IP address on a browser's address bar. Router's IP address is the default gateway when you check the IP address on the command prompt. As soon as you are on the login page, type the user name and password. Look for the wireless settings tab. SSID is the router's wireless network name. Replace the SSID of the name you want for your wireless network and apply the changes.

Hi i cannot see any wireless LAN on my new toshiba L300-11c laptop? can you advise how to sort this please? Thanks


You need to go into the routers programming and make sure the SSID is broadcasting and also while inside the routers programming rename the SSID to something familiar like your last name. If you need help accessing the programming let me know what Brand/Model# router you have and we will make sure its working properly. Also some laptops have a manual switch for turning the wireless on/off usually on the left side near the front.

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.
