Re: DO NOT REMEMBER SSID NAME GIVEN TO ROUTER...
You can see the SSID name from one of your wireless computer that is already connected to the wireless network. Just point your name over the wireless little computer icon down at bottom right hand by the time. It will say there "Wireless Network Connection, Connected to "name of the network". That "name of the network" is the wireless signal name like "Linksys" or whatever name you gave to your network when you setup the router. That's the SSID name as well. Wireless Network Name = SSID.

There should be a reset switch on the back of the router..press and hold this for 30 seconds to reset to the "admin" password..the wrt54 default password is admin and there is not a user name when it is reset
The default wireless network name/SSID is found underneath your router. It looks something like Belkin_N1_Wireless_123456. If you cannot see the SSID in the available networks on your wireless computer, then you might have changed it to a different name.
Use a computer that has connection to the router to access the setup page. Use a browser and type 192.168.2.1 in the address bar.
Go to Wireless -> Channel and SSID. You can change the SSID to any name that you want. Then make sure that Broadcast SSID is checked. So that the computer will be able to detect the SSID.
For the network key, go to the Security tab. If WPA is set, copy the Pre-shared key. If you are using WEP, you will need to take note of the 10 digits (64bits) or 26 digits (128bits) wep key.
You do that in the router setup an SSID is simply a "Name" that You give it. You log into the router, 192.168.1.1 use admin/blank and admin as login & password..once in the router you set it up with the wizard.
I don't know what type of internet connection you have. If you have cable internet connection, you can copy the mac address of your modem to your router - that's what you call, cloning. If you have DSL connection, you can just obtain an IP Address from the modem to the router. If it's an Internet connection that is requires authentication, you can use the PPPoE type of connection. You can configure your router to any of the mentioned configuration above.
All of that information is what YOU need to know. The security type and security key are things you would choose when you initially set up your router.
To find your SSID go to Start> Run> type CMD at the prompt type ipconfig copy the default gateway in your address bar. Your information should be:
User name: (Leave Blank)
Password: admin unless it has been changed already.
Go to your Basic Wireless Settings and you can find your Wireless Network Name (SSID) column. On there you can edit your SSID.
You can then click on the security tab and that will tell you what security type you use. It won't show your password, it will show ***** so it will only show the # of digits. That may jog your memory. You should be able to change your key too.
you need to check the router documentation - open a web page and log into the ip address supplied, you should receive a logon screen, type in username and password as noted in manual. If you don't have the manual, you can google model - should be able to find instructions online.
When you set up your router do always use a wired computer (phisically connected ).
You'll be setting up the router so setting it up through one is enough
Once the router is set up by performing these options
1>start->run->cmd ->youll find default gateway
2>open rsp by typing in default gateway address in brouser tab
3>select ->connection type ->and put in your uname and password for dsl or clone mac address for cable
4>set channell to 11 or 6 for best signal strength
5>set ur ssid(network name) and security (wep preffered) if you want it.
6>once router is set up on the top of the rsp you may see ipstatus:: connected
7>Now just select your network on your laptop
and happy surfing

Make sure that your game console is wi-fi/wireless ready.
Check the wireless settings (SSID, Wireless Security) which are configured in your router. To do that you need to access your router's setup page.
Launce IE from the computer connected to the router and type 192.168.1.1 which is the default IP address of Linksys routers. Then, it will open a window asking for a username and password. By default, there is no username. Type admin on the password field.
Once you're in the router's user interface, click WIRELESS tab. Take note of the SSID or wireless network name.
Then, click on a sub tab called Wireless Security. You will find there the type of security enabled in the router as well as the security key.
These settings such as SSID and wireless security should be configured to your game console in order for it to connect to your wireless network through the Linksys router.
