What is SSID?

SSID stands for Service Set IDentifier. This is what identifies wireless networks. It is also referred to as network name when speaking of wireless networks. The SSID acts as a login name for some wireless networks allowing you to connect to them. The SSID of accessible networks will display in your wireless configuration software. To access restricted networks you must program your wireless configuration software with the SSID of the network. For secure networks you must also enter the WEP key.

What is WEP?

WEP stands for Wired Equivalent Privacy. This is a security protocol that enhances the security of a wireless network. If the SSID is the login name, then WEP acts like the password. This is often referred to as the WEP Key. If you are connecting to a router that has WEP enabled then you must enable WEP on the computer you are using to connect to that router. In addition, you must also enter the same WEP key into your computer as the router is using. This helps to ensure that everything connecting to the router is authorized to connect to it.

NOTE: It is highly recommended to enable WEP on your wireless network. Not enabling WEP can allow your connection to be used by others for purposes that may violate the terms of service.
