Very hard to tell without some details.


If you have a wifi client, a mobile phone say, you just turn it on and tell it to connect to the wifi.


The phone will look for the SSIDs and show them to you.


If you have a Netgear device and you want to know what default SSID it uses, look at the label on the thing.


Manuals are always a good place to start.

Visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

Feed in your model number and check the documentation for your hardware.

Look for the model number on the label on the device.

Check the section in the manual Specify Basic WiFi Settings.

There may also be some helpful videos on what to do.

Just another user with a set of boilerplate macros.

My network DM200 -> R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> Orbi RBR40 -> Orbi RBS50Y -> RBS40V
