Where do I find my SSID#


The SSID is the identifier for the wireless access point (AP) you are trying to connect to. If the AP is broadcasting, the SSID should appear in a list of available WiFi connections when you enable WiFi in proximity to the AP. The SSID is not necessarily a number, it can be ASCII text, such as "MyAP1234" or "Linksys". You click on the displayed SSID you want to connect to and if it is encrypted, you will be asked to put in the password or access code. Some AP/routers have the SSID and access codes printed on a label on the bottom of the router. Otherwise you have to get them from the provider of the WiFi access. Some AP's don't broadcast their SSID's and you have to get both items from the WiFi provider and use your phone's connect process to enter the SSID and access code.

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.

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.

Hi,

I think a functional explanation may be of some assistance to you.

The IP address is assigned to the server or client software, but not to the physical workstation which the software or device is installed.

D-Link and virtually every other provider uses IP addresses from a Private IP Address class, which is special class of IP addresses that is reserved for private local networks (not to be confused with Virtual Private Networks, or VPN).

The default IP address is 192.168.0.x and assigned automatically. The most common IP address in any local system is 192.168.0.1.

Over the years, I've found that it is unnecessary to manually TCP?IP settings unless the automatic settings or configuaration has failed When I do have to change the settings, the following are used on Local Area Networks (LANs):

IP Address 192.168.0.1
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
DNS Do not change
Gateway IP
Address None because the default should be 192.168.1.0 or whatever was
automatically assigned.

Some additional information that should assist you in better understanding a LAN.

What is a ssid# and where do i find it


Service set identifier, or SSID
*********************************



Service set identifier, or SSID, is a name that identifies a particular 802.11 wireless LAN. A client device receives broadcast messages from all access points within range advertising their SSIDs. The client device can then either manually or automatically—based on configuration—select the network with which to associate. The SSID can be up to 32 characters long. As the SSID displays to users, it normally consists of human-readable characters. However, the standard does not require this. The SSID is defined as a sequence of 1–32 octets each of which may take any value.

It is legitimate for multiple access points to share the same SSID if they provide access to the same network as part of an extended service set.

Some wireless access points support broadcasting multiple SSIDs, allowing the creation of Virtual Access Points, partitioning a single physical access point into several virtual access points, each of which can have a different set of security and network settings. This is not yet part of the 802.11 standard

I used set up disk, set up SSID and added Key but laptop won't access SSID/router.


In order to access ther router wirelessly, you must first connect via cable to router. Using IE, go to http://192.168.1.1 and look in the Wireless section. Set the Network Name (SSID) you want - it can be almost anything you want - and after that you can choose what sort of Security you want to use, and set up your access passcode. Once this is all done, and access to Wireless is verified (using the passcode to access the SSID you chose) disconnect the cable. You now have control of router wirelessly.

SSID


The SSID is the wireless network name. It is much like the workgroup name in Windows networking. If the SSID of the AP or the wireless router is WLAN (default) each client will search for an access point and associate with it. The default configuration for the F5D6020 PCMCIA card is to connect to an SSID named "ANY". This means the Access Point does not look for a specific SSID. If that is changed to a specific name other than ANY or WLAN, then the card will not connect to WLAN because it is being "told" to connect to a specific Access Point with a specific name.
