This is the identifying name for the network being serviced by the router. This name is established when the wireless network was set up. If you have not set up the router for wireless operation, you will need to go in as an administrator and set up the wireless network. This includes giving the network a name (SSID) (you decide what this will be).
If you need more help, let me know. I'll need to know the make and model of the router. Thanks.

Unable to find an access point. please confirm SSID and try again. Not sure what SSID means

SSID is basically the name of your network. A lot of people's networks are named the generic "Netgear" or "Quest_(random number)", but some people like me have a custom set network name.

To find your SSID, type in the address bar exactly, no .com or www. Once you arrive to the network page, search around for either SSID or network name, as their basically the same. You can also try to find it be searching around a computer that's connected to the network. You should be able to find it in the system tray, as pictured here.

Hover over the circled icon, and it should say the name of your network. That's what SSID means.

NOTE: If you're trying to connect to your network by wireless connection with the Wii, try the "Search for an Access Point" option and see if your network appears. If it doesn't, then try entering your SSID.

What dos SSID mean and how do i put internet on my psp

Hi Littel Angel,

SSID means Service Set Identifier or the Name of the Network (Network Name). For you to connect to the internet you need to check the settings of your router using a working computer with internet connection. I've listed down the steps on how to access your router to obtain the settings for you to connect your PSP.

How to access the Router:

1. You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x)

2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. (Refer to the manual of your router or post a reply so that i can provide you the username and password of your router)

3. Go to the Wireless Settings Page of your router. Look for the SSID or the Network Name and the Network Key or Passphrase. You can personalize it so that you can easily remeber the details.

4. Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the Network Key to make it secure.
Rate me if this helps so that i can help others.

Thanks for suing Fixya.

It will not connect to the internet at all now it tells me that there is no access point in range and to check my SSid setting what is that

so that means your game console is using wireless connection. it's not detecting the wireless equipment(usually a wireless router) that it's connecting to. SSID is the name of the wireless network of the wireless router or access point. SSID is like an identification, so that your game console or wireless computer if they are connecting to the right equipment and not to your neighbor..

if you have other computers that are wireless and those are working right, it means the problem is on the game console.. try to power cycle the devices, turn off the modem, router or access point, computers and game console.. wait 1 minute, then turn on the modem first, router or access point next, then computers and game console..
