The following article will serve as a guide and help you answer the question how can I find my network’s SSID.


Locate Network’s SSID

Ad


If you want to search for the default SSID of the router, you need to look for it on your device itself. Just look on the side or the bottom of the device for a sticker. It will have all the information printed over it like the SSID or ‘Network Name’. The SSID will be printed near the barcode.


 

How to Use Another Device to Find Network’s SSID


If you are using a device to connect to your network, it can be used to find your network's SSID.

Windows


If you are a Windows user, you need to left click on the signal icon located at the bottom right of your panel on the desktop. Find the name of the network in the list that says “Connected”. This Connected network is your SSID.


Mac OS


Mac users need to select the Wi-Fi icon from the menu bar and search for a list of network with a check mark. This check marked SSID is your network.

 

iOS


iOS users need to select ‘Settings’ and select ‘Wi-Fi’. In this list find a network with a check mark.

Android


Android users need to select ‘Settings’ and select ‘Wi-Fi’. In the list of networks, find one that says ‘Connected’.

The name displayed here will be your network’s SSID. If you wish, you can change it as you wish and click ‘SAVE’. This new SSID will now be displayed on all your devices.
