Difference between ESSID and SSID
Both an extreme newbie and a networking question, but I guessed this was the best place for it
Having googled the above question I got one hit on another forum asking the same question but not getting an answer. I've searched these boards but got more than 1200 results, the first few of which I looked at but couldn't see the answer.
So it seems that the question should be pretty simple: what is the difference between an ESSID and an SSID? If indeed there is a difference, I would be interested in how one could extrapolate the former from the latter.
Thanks for your attention
