What is a BSSID?

In a WiFi-connected device, it's a substitute for a MAC address.

It's a name given to a WIRED AP (access point), such as “Kim's Network.” Therefore, it's the wired equivalent of an SSID.

It's the password used to decrypt WEP, WPA or WPA2 in a WiFi broadcast.

It's used to identify specific devices connected to the same WiFi network (WLAN.)
