Change SSID Name on Wireless Networking

2/12/2010 09:44:00 AM

Wi-Fi access points and routers ship with a pre-defined network name (SSID) set by the manufacturer.

The SSID can be accessed from within these products' Web-based or Windows-based configuration utilities. Common examples of pre-defined SSIDs are simple names like "wireless," "netgear," "linksys," or "default." An SSID can be changed at any time, as long as the change is also made on all wireless clients.

To improve the security of your home wireless network, change the SSID to a different name than the default. Here are some recommended do's and dont's, based on best network security practices:

Don't use your name, address, birthdate, or other personal information as part of the SSID.

Likewise, don't use any of your Windows or Internet Web site passwords.

Don't tempt would-be intruders by using tantalizing network names like "SEXY-BOX" or "TOP-SECRET".

Do pick an SSID that contains both letters and numbers

Do choose a name as long or nearly as long as the maximum length allowed.

Do consider changing your SSID every few
