I very new to networking and I am having trouble getting my two computers to work together. My first question relates to SSID. I saw this information on a web site. (Apologies to the author as I can't remember the address). Quote:
"To improve the security of your home wireless network pick an SSID that contains both letters and numbers.
Do choose a name as long or nearly as long as the maximum length allowed"
My question is why all the secrecy. My other computer sees the SSID and displays it. If my computer can do this I assume others can too. Unless of course I have missed the point!. Any help would be appreciated.
