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.

How do I confirm SSID. I reset parental controls and It can't find access point

If you are unable to find the access point itself this is likely due to a configuration within your router. There are a couple of possibilities here. If you have a dual channel router and have only configured the 5 GHz frequencies your Wii will not find them. If you have hidden your SSID (chosen not to broadcast it) this of course will also prevent it from being seen... and in the case of most Wii models; it will also prevent you from even finding it manually.

There is no option to disconnect the wireless capabilities of the Wii, so again, it is likely something in your router's config.

My WII is saying unable to find access point please confirm SSID. What does that mean

Dear Friend,
First, you need to identified you wireless name from your wireless modem such as "HOME-229". Then after identifying the right SSID (service set identifier), enter the name in your WII follow by the right password out of your Wireless Modem. Also, make sure that your SSID in your wireless modem is broadcasting and not hiding. Some devices will simple not access online if the SSID is not broadcasting.

Good Luck!
