There are separate ssids and key paswords on my cg3000d router

I see two separate default network names (ssid) and two separate key passwords. One is supposed to be for wired networek and one for wireless?  Do I use one for an ethernet connected pc, and the other for connecting my mac laptop to wireless?  Windows 7 home premium, and Macdbook pro

Ok. I did find out I could not use the wifi setting without entering the admin password, but I used DHCP and it automatically set up fine.

The CG3000D only has one Wi-Fi network, therefore, only one SSID.

 

There are no passwords required for wired devices to connect to the network and access the Internet.

 

The only passwords used in conjunction with routers are administrative passwords to log into the router and Wi-Fi passwords to connect to the wireless network.
