ssid location
I am installing a new wireless printer. I need to know my SSID and my WPA
passphrase(which i know). Where can I find the SSID if I do not know what it
is?

Thank you.

Re: ssid location

The easy way: Log into your router's settings for the wireless part and
BANG! Right there.

Alternative way (Requires a laptop or desktop already connected to the
wireless network): Place your mouse over the icon that shows your
connected to an access point and wait for the balloon to open and it'll
tell you the name of the access point you're connected to.
