How do I find my SSID?
I am trying to connect a laptop to my printer, wireless. I have followed the wizard through to the point that it asks for my SSID.

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

Enter your router's startup page addy into your browsers address bar. For e.g Netgear it's click here You will need to enter the username and password of the router. On this page there should be a section called 'wireless settimgs' On this page will be your SSID.

If you need more help, let us know what router you are using and if you have set up a different usrname/password than the default version.

You create a name so that when it appears in your connections list you know which is yours. When you right click on network connections, your ssid will be visible

When you have made good connection you can prevent it appearing to anyone but yourself.

Please use WPA to protect your router from being used by others.
