SSID


The SSID is the name assigned to a Wi-Fi wireless network. The SSID is a name - up to 32 characters long - that is used to identify a particular wireless network.

The SSID is CaSe SeNsitive.

Generally speaking, access points that are part of the same wireless network will have the same SSID.

Enterprise access points can have multiple SSIDs concurrently.

Wireless stations need to know the SSID used by an access point in order to associate with it.

You configure the SSID at the access point, and at the wireless stations.

Most wireless client software, including Windows XP and Windows Vista, allows you to enter several SSIDs, and to rank these in a “search order”.

A wireless station “scans” for the first SSID, then the second, and so on, until it finds a wireless network within its range.
