    The SSID will be known as soon as you change it and restart. So why change it? -- Tom

    I think he is speaking about accessing the router..It may be because you are not using the correct username and password to access the router.Or otherwise someone has changed it.

    If you can access the hardware, I would suggest doing a hard reset.  The manual should explain how to set back to factory defaults.While the wireless designation will be present you could choose to not broadcast the SSID and choose a better encryption and password.

    ...you could choose to not broadcast the SSID...   You can choose not to broadcast the SSID from the router. But you can't choose not to broadcast the SSID at all.   If the router doesn't broadcast it, every client that is configured to communicate with that router will broadcast the SSID everytime its adapter powers up and starts looking for a network. Even if it's been temporarily moved to a different location -- taken home on a weekend, taken on a business trip to a client, whatever. And the client will continue to broadcast it until told not to or powered off.   In order for client and router to decide to talk to each other, the identity has to be broadcast. You can choose to limit the broadcasting by having the router do it or to have it happening more often with no control and less predictability.   There is no good reason not to broadcast the SSID from the router.   Tom
