I just bought a Nook from Barnes and Noble and it requires a wifi hotspot. I was under the impression that Uverse provided the hot spot with my computer. Is that incorrect?
If I'm right, how do I connect my ereader to the hotspot? So far, I've discovered a manual screen on the Nook which allows me to add a hotspot, but it needs an address for "Network SSID". Where would I find that address?
Thanks for any who may provide me with the answer before I brave att's branching tech support tree.

Thanks for answering. I need to be able to access the internet from my home via the Nook. I found the SSID # on the side of the router, but now the Nook is also asking for a Security method and gives the options or "None", WEP, WPA, or WPA2. I have no idea what I should put in. Would you venture a guess with an explanation?

If you are trying to connect to your home wireless network, you can find the Network Name (SSID) and the type of security (Authentication Type) that you are using on your home network at the link below:

I too have the Nook and it works with any wi-fi hot spot. I've used it at my work and at a Starbucks. If you have tethering on your cell phone you can also use that as a hot spot.
