Pets get a mention from time to time. This one has expired, sadly, but we don't want another cat!

Yes the SSID could be Airportus Extremus. Or Galadriel, or Dark Knight, or
Electron Transfer Device. Or given it is the device that knows all the
information in the network and controls it, perhaps your wife's name would
be appropriate.  :-)

Numbers such as 00:19:E3:33:3D:7C are also called MAC addresses and used to
identify a specific device.

When you setup your Wireless Network you would have given it a
name ... That name is the SSID

Hi Ronnie

So SSID is not the same as AirportID? It says my Airport ID is
(similar to) 00:2B:24:4B:B7:36
Is SSID the name of my base station, similar to 'Airportus Extremus'?

Slow learner here tonight!

Thanks Cloe,

Reg

Hi all WAMUGgers

Is the Airport Extreme's Airport ID the same as its SSID? I'm
trying to tune in a wireless LG Blueray player which asks for it
to be entered manually and I can't get the connection to work.
Alternatively it asks me to press the button on the wireless
router to ID it manually but the only button on the Airport is the
reset button.

Then it asks me to say whether it's WPA - WPA2. I've reset the
Airport to WPA2 Personal from WPA/WPA2 Personal, but I'm not sure
if it will work. As I must key in every digit manually on the LG,
I don't want to do this too many times.

Hi Reg,

Open Airport Utility, then double click on your Base Station - then
Airport (in Menu bar) & under "Summary" - Airport ID (it will be
something similar to 00:19:E3:33:3D:7C

The SSID is The Name of your Network
.
Cheers,
Ronni
