Your SSID number is located on the default web page for your router. http://192.168.1.1 should be the default IP address, just type that into Internet Explorer and look for the Wireless Security tab.

The SSID is the Identification of the Wireless network, you set it up in your router settings.
Some routers got a static SSID, you can view it also in your router settings.

Turn the wireless on, on the nook. Select your wireless SSID and enter any password you have on your network.

I have a next book and need an ssid number


After login from network setting you can find the SSID number...


The easiest way to find your SSID is to look on your wireless router. The default SSID -- the one it came configured with from the factory -- is always located on the bottom or rear of the router.

I want ssid for idea net setter wireless adapter


A SSID is the name that identifies your wireless network. A wireless adapter connected to a computer will not have a SSID. Your wireless router will have one. If your setting up a new wireless network then you will want to look for the SSID with the brand name of your router or ISP name plus the last 4-5 digits of the wireless router serial number located on a sticker on the device.

Can't connect my 2nd Nook Tablet


Since the nook is wireless, I don't understand what the problem is. Doesn't your nook make a wireless connection? Does it recognize any of the other wireless signals in your area? If it doesn't recognize any wireless signals, then the problem is in your nook and not from your router. Try going by a Barnes and Nobel book store and see if it will log onto theirs. And most Barnes and Nobles have people trained on Nook troubleshooting.

I do not know what my ssid number is to connect my wii console to the internet to use netflicks


The ssid number is the name you gave your wireless router when you were setting it up. If you do not have a wireless router, then you will need one to connect it wirelessly to the internet. Check your router's manual and it will tell you how login to the router and get the ssid from the wireless settings

Unable to get NOOK to work with Linksys WRT54GS


To log into your WRT54G, open a Web browser on a computer that's connected to your router and go to http://192.168.1.1/ - the default username is admin and the default password is blank (leave the field empty).

----

In the Setup tab, Basic Setup subtab:

DHCP Server should be set to Enable.

If you had to change this setting, be sure to click the Save Settings button.

----

In the Wireless tab, Basic Wireless Settings subtab:

The first data item is Wireless Network Mode. For reasonable performance, this should be set to either Mixed or G-Only. You should be able to connect your NOOK even if it's set to B-Only, but that would be a very unusual setting and would give slower networking.

Wireless Network Name (SSID) is the name of your Wi-Fi network. If it still says 'linksys', change it to something different-but be aware that you'll need to reconnect all of your current Wi-Fi devices using the new SSID. That's a pain in the behind, but using the default SSID will cause you lots of connection grief if someone else installs a Wi-Fi router with the default SSID, because your devices won't be able to tell them apart. Write down your SSID, being careful to distinguish capital letters from small letters, so you'll know what it is.

Wireless SSID Broadcast should be set to Enable. Otherwise, your NOOK won't see your network. You could type in your SSID, but that's a pain in the behind that you don't need. There's no reason not to enable SSID broadcast.

If you had to make any changes to these settings, be sure to click the Save Settings button.

----

In the Wireless tab, Wireless Security subtab:

Security Mode: write down which of the choices is selected:
  • Disable
  • WPA Pre-Shared Key
  • WPA RADIUS
  • RADIUS
  • WEP
I say to write this down just in case you run into more trouble and need to ask someone for help.

If 'Disable' is selected: you have no security on your Wi-Fi. Anyone can use your Internet connection, and anyone can listen in if they're in range. If you send unencrypted passwords, email, etc., they could see what you send. Most public Wi-Fi systems (McDonald's, Starbucks, B&N, etc.) have no security.

If either 'RADIUS' choice is selected: these settings are used for large organizations with stringent security requirements and a dedicated authentication server. Your NOOK cannot connect if either of these settings is used. You almost certainly don't want to be using either of these for a home system.

If the 'WPA Pre-Shared Key' choice is selected: WPA offers good security for Wi-Fi and is the best of these choices for home use.
  • WPA Algorithms should be set to TKIP. This is the normal setting for WPA. I don't know if your NOOK will connect if you set it to AES, which is normally used with WPA2 rather than WPA.
  • WPA Shared Key is the access key for your network. Write it down, being careful to distinguish capital letters and small letters. You'll definitely need this key in order to connect your NOOK or any other Wi-Fi device to your router. Don't change this unless you're prepared to go back and reconnect your other Wi-Fi devices. Unfortunately, there are some punctuation marks that you can't enter on the NOOK keyboard, and if your WPA passphrase contains one of those you may need to change the passphrase in order to connect your NOOK.
If 'WEP' is selected: the WEP security system is a weak system, easily cracked by knowledgeable hackers. However, many older wireless devices and some of the cheapest new wireless devices can't handle anything better than WEP. This isn't a good situation, but you work with what you've got.
  • Default Transmit Key should be set to 1.
  • Passphrase is not important. It is not your network's access key. Ignore it.
  • Key 1 is the access key for your network. Write it down. It will be either 10 or 26 characters, containing only the numbers 0-9 and the letters A-F. You will definitely need this key in order to connect your NOOK or any other Wi-Fi device to your router. There's no reason to change this, and if you do change it you'll have to go back and reconnect your other Wi-Fi devices.

If you had to make any changes to these settings, be sure to click the Save Settings button. Any changes in this section will also require that your existing Wi-Fi devices be reconnected.

----

In the Wireless tab, Wireless MAC Filter subtab:

  • Wireless MAC Filter should be set to Disable. If it's enabled and set to Permit only mode, only the devices listed on the MAC Filter List can use your Wi-Fi. If your NOOK isn't in the list, you can't connect your NOOK. Bad ju-ju, huh?
If you had to change this setting, be sure to click the Save Settings button. Changing this should not require your current Wi-Fi devices to reconnect.

It's possible to add your NOOK to the MAC Filtering list and then turn MAC Filtering back on. But that's beyond the scope of this posting. I will, however, mention that your NOOK's MAC address is listed in its Settings screen-on page 2 if it's a NOOK 3G.

----

In the Wireless tab, Advanced Wireless Settings subtab:

  • Authentication Type should be set to Auto. Do not set it to 'Shared Key'; this won't work with NOOK. Auto should work with any WEP-capable devices. If it's set to 'Shared Key', change it to 'Auto'-this shouldn't affect any of your current Wi-Fi devices.
If you had to change this setting, be sure to click the Save Settings button. Changing this should not require your current Wi-Fi devices to reconnect.

----

You should now be able to connect your NOOK using the SSID and the access key that you wrote down.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!

Thanks, Joe

My nook won't connect to my linksys cisco rooter.


Check your settings. You may need to make sure the SSID is being broadcast and make sure the router is set to allow connections.
You may also be able to add the nook's MAC address so the router will see it.
