Service Set Identifier (also referred to as Radio Network Name). A unique identifier used to identify a radio network and which stations must use to be able to communicate with each other or to an access point. The SSID can be any alphanumeric entry up to a maximum of 32 characters.
SSID, or Service Set Identifier, is the workgroup name of your Wireless Network. All devices (Access Points, Wireless Routers, and Wireless Network Adapters) must all have the same SSID to communicate on the Wireless Network.
Set Service Identifier. The SSID identifies a wireless network and is normally broadcast where any computer within range can pick it up. If SSID broadcast is turned off, any computer within range must know the SSID before connecting to the network. An SSID can be up to 32 characters.
Service Set Identifier. Every wireless network or network subset has a unique identifier called an SSID. Every device connected to that part of the network uses the same SSID to identify itself as part of the â€œfamily, when it wants to gain access to the network or verify the origin of a data packet it's sending over the network.
Short for Service Set Identifier, a 32-character unique identifier attached to the header of packets sent over a WLAN that acts as a password when a mobile device tries to connect to the Basic Service Set.
Service set identifier is a unique identifier that wireless access points and wireless nodes use to communicate with each other. The SSID is contained within the header of all packets exchanged within a defined WLAN BSS (basic service set). A device cannot be permitted to join the BSS unless it can provide the unique SSID. However, because most access points broadcast their SSID's and the SSID is contained in plain text in all packets (even if WEP encryption is used), there is no effective way to secure SSID's.
Service Set Identifier. Also referred to as the network name, the SSID identifies a Wi-Fi network. Each access point on a particular wireless network must use the same SSID. Access points typically broadcast their SSID, alerting potential clients of their availability. If a network does not broadcast its SSID, the user must obtain it from the network administrator, and then manually enter it during the Wi-Fi configuration process.
A unique 32-character network name, or identifier, that differentiates one wireless LAN from another. All access points and clients attempting to connect to a specific WLAN must use the same SSID. The SSID can be any alphanumeric entry up to a maximum of 32 characters. (See ESSID, network name). close
Service Set IDentifier. A wireless LAN name that is assigned by its owner. Default SSID is usually pre-defined by a wireless access point manufacturer. You must change it to another name if you don't want your network to be shared unknowingly by a passer-by or a neighbor.
Identifies all the access points on a wi-fi network. You can't log on at a wi-fi hotspot without a proper SSID. For example, if you use a Linksys access point at home, the default SSID is "linksys." At Starbucks, the SSID is "t-mobile." But SSIDs are not secret, and they don't provide security. For this reason, if you have a wi-fi access point set up at home, you should probably change the SSID, making it harder to discover. Windows XP and various programs that come with wi-fi cards can sniff out SSIDs when you're near a hotspot. If the hotspot is operated by a service provider, you'll need to pay for access and get a password. If you're lucky enough to find a free hotspot, the SSID lets you log onto the Internet.
Service Set Identifier, or the name of a specific Wi-Fi network. The 32-character identifier serves as a password when mobile devices try to connect to a basic service set (BSS). All devices attempting to connect with a specific WLAN must have the same SSID.
Service Set ID. It is a unique identifier that client devices use to associate with the access point. The SSID helps client devices distinguish between multiple wireless networks in the same vicinity. The SSID can be any alphanumeric entry up to 32 characters long.
The name of a wireless network (ie benhome, suenetwork) used to distinguish it from another, such as your neighbours' network. Make sure you change it from the default when setting up a router (it's usually the manufacturer name). Anyone can see your SSID, so don't want include personal details such as your house number.
This is the name by which your wireless network is known. typically it is broadcast by your Access Point; however, for security reasons you may want to disable SSID broadcast. If SSID Broadcast is turned off then you must remember what the SSID is to connect to your wireless network.
SSID is an acronym for Service Set Identifier. The SSID is a sequence of up to 32 letters or numbers that is the ID, or name, of a wireless local area network. The SSID is set by a network administrator and for open wireless networks, the SSID is broadcast to all wireless devices within range of the network access point. A closed wireless network does not broadcast the SSID, requiring users to know the SSID to access the network. Most wireless base stations come with a default SSID that is easily found on the Internet and security experts recommend changing the default SSID to protect your network.
SSID is the "network name" for the devices in a wireless LAN subsystem. It is a clear text 32-character string added to the head of every WLAN packet. The SSID differentiates one WLAN from another, so all users of a network must supply the same SSID to access a given AP. An SSID prevents access by any client device that does not have the SSID. By default, however, an access point (AP) broadcasts its SSID in its beacon. Even if SSID broadcasting is turned off, a hacker can detect the SSID through sniffing.
A 32-character unique identifier attached to the header of packets sent over a WLAN that acts as a password when a mobile device tries to connect to the BSS. The SSID differentiates one WLAN from another, so all access points and all devices attempting to connect to a specific WLAN must use the same SSID. A device will not be permitted to join the BSS unless it can provide the unique SSID. Because an SSID can be sniffed in plain text from a packet it does not supply any security to the network. An SSID is also referred to as a Network Name because essentially it is a name that identifies a wireless network.
Standardized Station ID's in VA are a -1 for BBS's, i.e., KC4ASF-1 and using no SSID for the keyboard such as KC4ASF. TCPIP operators use -8 as their SSID for the BBS. MSYS netnodes use -3 and Kanodes use -7 SSID's. It is simplest for BBS's and TNC based operations to use the same SSID's. ALL non-forwarding stations should clearly state in the Connect Text that they do not auto-forward.
