No, your SSID is the wireless "ID" that your router has, when you scan with the Wii it will say something like "BTHomeHub-****" depending on your make and model of router. Scan first with the Wii and then see what SSID's are displayed, yours will normally be the one with the strongest signal.

Hope this helps

I want to connect to a xbox 360 live but it asks me for a ssid a wpa and wep number where do i get those numbers from

SSID, WPA and WEP are things used to identify and access an wireless network/router.

SSID is the name of the wireless network you want to connect to.
WPA and WEP are forms of encryption/security for the wireless network. Basically it's the password to get onto the wireless network.

Most routers broadcast the SSID information, so you should be able to select it from a list on your Xbox (Scan for Networks option). If not you can also manually enter it.

The WPA/WEP you'll have to know and enter manually. If you forgot it, you can find it in your router's settings. Here's a guide to finding/accessing the password; all you need is access to a computer that is already on the wireless network.

And just in case, here's an official guide from Microsoft for troubleshooting wireless network problems.

Hope you get it sorted out!
(Personal opinion: Wireless is a pain; just use an wired ethernet connection)

How do i get the ssid code or how do i hook my wii up 4 a wireless internet

the SSID is the name of your router and most of the time the wep key you need is marked under the router, the first thing is to search for the SSID( your routers name) on your nintendo wii, when you have found the right SSID witch by the way should be the strongest signal around as it should be the nearest signal, then you need to put in the wep key ( the same wep key you have on your pc,) that is if you have secured wireless signal, if you have an open signal you should be able to search for the SSID, and when you found the right SSID you just need to connect.
Hope it helps!!

Have been using router but it is not encrypted. How do I find my user name. June byard 2607 S. Main St. Penticton Bc v2a 5j4

Do this:
Before you begin, please try to configure the WRT54G from a hardwired PC for simplicity. Whenever security is changed you’ll need to change the settings on all wireless units so it’s a good rule of thumb to do security changes from a hardwired PC if possible.
Accessing the Router
1. Go to your desktop and double click on Internet Explorer (Located on the Start Menu in Windows XP)
2. When "Internet Explorer" opens type the routers IP address into the "Address" bar and hit the [Enter] key (The Wireless routers default IP address is
3. The "Enter Network Password" window will appear.
4. Skip user name and type in your password (admin is the default password), and click OK
Setup Page Security Options
When you arrive at the Setup page, you'll see the bulk of your wireless security features. There are three things you're going to want to set on this page:
a) Delete linksys from the "SSID" field
b) Input your own unique SSID. We general recommend something easy to remember, but secure enough to where people would not be able to guess it easily. Sometimes your best bet is to use your last name and add some numbers, in this example we’re using linksys12345678910.
c) Click Apply then Continue
2. SSID Broadcast
SSID broadcasts allows other 802.11b and 802.11g users to see your Access Points SSID, by disabling this option is similar to closing your binds and not letting people see through. If you have Windows XP computer(s), do this step last.
a) Select Disable on the “SSID Broadcast”.
b) Click Apply then Continue
3. WEP
a) Set “Wireless Security” to Enable.
b) Click the Edit Security Settings button.
c) A window will appear prompting you “Do you want to enable the Security Encryption?” click OK.
d) When the "Security Settings" Window appears, set the “Security Mode” to WEP*. Then set the “WEP Encryption” to the 128 bits 26 hex digits option.
NOTE: 128 bit WEP may not work on non-Linksys products due to its lack of an IEEE standard
e) Enter a passphrase** that is different from the SSID. Try to make it alphanumeric; instead of just security, use security12345, then click the Generate button.
f) After the key has been generated copy the key into a notepad document and copy that file onto a floppy.
*NOTE: There are other security options, which the WRT54G uses, however, not all wireless adapter currently support security implementations such WPA and 802.1x. Most wireless adapters support either 64-bit WEP or 128-bit WEP, so Linksys recommends using WEP unless you know that all of your wireless adapters support WPA.
**NOTE: The passphrase will not work with non-Linksys products, so you will need to use the 1st key that you copied onto floppy. You will also need the key, not the passphrase for using Linksys products under Windows XP

g) Click Apply then Continue
h) Close the window
