By default, the wifi SSID will always be the model of the Cradlepoint router separated by a (-) and then the last 3 of the routers MAC address.When you connect to a wireless network, the settings and profile of that specific network is saved on your computer so that you won’t have to re-enter your network credentials, such as the wireless security key to connect the next time.Try a different laptop to see whether it has the same problem.This should be not used to ignore a valid security alert.You’ll want to do this before anything else, update to the latest version of Safari that is supported by your Macs version of OS X.WAN ports are usually colored blue and/or labeled with an icon that looks like a little monitor; they are intended to be used to connect devices that provide internet, such as Cable, DSL, or Satellite modems.
If you see a message about Validating Identity upon connecting to the Cradlepoint router, it means WEP security mode is enabled.

Also, since I was able to connect from my laptop with no problem, it led me to believe it was something wrong with my desktop.
