Change Wireless Network Name (SSID) On D-Link Router and Hide Network

One week ago one of my friends called me to fix wireless network issues at his home. He told me that his computer was receiving good network signals but once a while his device was getting disconnected without any reasons. I asked him whether his PC connected to the right network. His answer was yes. He had a D-Link router, and the wireless network name (SSID) was dlink. He was pretty sure his laptop was connected to the right network since the SSID was the same name configured on his D-Link router.

I asked him to switch off the router and check if he could connect to it. He did the same. Still, he was connected. It was another network his computer connected to with the same SSID.

To avoid this type of mistakes, you should change the default Wireless Network Name with a unique name. To change the SSID on D-Link Wireless Router, follow the steps below.
