enable broadcast ssid

Discussion in 'Networking Issues' started by thislittlepiggy, Aug 3, 2007.

  1. My secure network was set up with broadcast ssid disabled. I can't find the place to change this and enable it to broadcast. I have to set up another computer on the network and am finding it impossible. Where is the option to enable/disable ssid broadcasting????

    Depending on what type of Wireless Ap you have on my WRT54G its on the wireless page where you setup your SSID.

    Under Wireless
    Basic Wireless Settings

    Wireless SSID Broadcast {}ENABLE {} DISABLE

    If you cannot find it you can click on
    view available wirless networks
    Than click Change the Order of Prefered Wireless Settings
    Click add
    Enter SSID: Case Sensitive
    Uncheck the key is provided for me and enter your WEP.
    Or if using any other click Network Authenication and choose and enter key
    Other than that it should be straight forward.

    Hope this helps
