    Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD



    [0001] The present disclosure generally relates to technical field of communication, and more particularly, to a method and apparatus for accessing a wireless access point.

    BACKGROUND



    [0002] At present, many smart devices are capable of using a Wireless-Fidelity (Wi-Fi) function. However, since most of the smart devices have no keyboard or display screen being able to display a Service Set Identifier (SSID) of a wireless router, in general, such smart devices cannot directly access the wireless router.

    [0003] One accessing method provided by the related art includes: after accessing a wireless router, a mobile phone unicasting a SSID and an access password of the wireless router, and then a smart device accessing the wireless router according to the SSID and the access password unicasted by the mobile phone.

    [0004] Since the SSID has no standard coding format, when a coding format of the SSID of the wireless router is different from that of an SSID defaulted by the mobile phone, the mobile phone may automatically convert the coding format of the SSID of the wireless router into the coding format of the SSID defaulted by the mobile phone. In this way, after the mobile phone unicasts the coded SSID to the smart device, and the smart device tries to access the wireless router according to the SSID and the access password unicasted by the mobile phone, the wireless router cannot recognize the converted SSID, i.e., the smart device cannot successfully be connected to the wireless router.

    [0005] US 2013/0231151 is concerned with probe request and response exchange.

    [0006] CN 104703176 is concerned with a configuration method of a wireless network, intelligent terminal and wireless network equipment.

    [0007] US 2015/0223154 is concerned with an active search method in a wireless LAN system.

    [0008] CN 104283642 is concerned with a method for issuing a service set identifier (SSID) in a wireless local area network. US2011/182204 is concerned with a communication device and method for controlling the same.

    [0031] Fig. 2 is a flow chart showing a method for accessing a wireless access point, according to an exemplary embodiment. In the present embodiment, the explanations are given by using an example in which the method is applied in the smart device shown in Fig. 1. As shown in Fig. 2, the method may include the following steps.

    [0032] In step 201, access information of the wireless access point broadcasted by a preset device is received, wherein the access information includes a Basic Service Set Identifier (BSSID) and an access password of the wireless access point, and the preset device is a device having successfully accessed the wireless access point.

    [0033] In step 202, device finding information is unicasted according to the BSSID, wherein the device finding information carries therein the BSSID.

    [0034] In step 203, feedback information sent by the wireless access point is received, wherein the feedback information carries therein an original Service Set Identifier (SSID) of the wireless access point.

    [0035] In step 204, the wireless access point is accessed according to the original SSID carried in the feedback information and the access password.

    [0036] Alternatively, the unicasting the device finding information according to the BSSID includes:
    unicasting a probe request carrying the BSSID.

    [0037] Alternatively, the receiving the feedback information sent by the wireless access point includes:

    [0038] Alternatively, the access information further includes a SSID of the wireless access point broadcasted by the preset device; and before unicasting the device finding information according to the BSSID, the method further includes:

    detecting whether the SSID in the access information contains a preset character, wherein the preset character is a character having different coding formats; and

    if the preset character is contained, performing the step of unicasting the device finding information according to the BSSID.



    [0039] In conclusion, in the method for accessing a wireless access point provided by the present embodiment, the BSSID and the access password broadcasted by the preset device are received, the device finding information is unicasted according to the received BSSID, the wireless access device sends the feedback information after receiving the device finding information, the feedback information containing an original SSID of the wireless access point, thereafter, the smart device may access the wireless access point according to the original SSID in the feedback information and the access password received in the past, thereby solving the problem in the related art that the smart device cannot successfully be connected to the wireless router due to that the SSID received by the smart device cannot be recognized by the wireless router, and achieving the technical effect that the smart device can successfully be connected to the wireless router.

    [0040] Fig. 3 is a flow chart showing a method for accessing a wireless access point, according to another exemplary embodiment. In the present embodiment, the explanations are given by using an example in which the method is applied in the preset device shown in Fig. 1. As shown in Fig. 3, the method may include the following steps.

    [0041] In step 301, a wireless access point is accessed.

    [0042] In step 302, access information of the wireless access point is broadcasted, wherein the access information includes a Basic Service Set Identifier (BSSID) and an access password of the wireless access point, and the BSSID and the access password are configured for instructing a smart device to access the wireless access point.

    [0043] Alternatively, before broadcasting the access information of the wireless access point, the method further includes:

    detecting whether a Service Set Identifier (SSID) of the wireless access point contains a preset character, wherein the preset character is a character having different coding formats; and

    if the preset character is contained, performing the step of broadcasting the access information of the wireless access point.



    [0044] In conclusion, in the method for accessing a wireless access point provided by the present embodiment, the access information of the wireless access point is broadcasted after accessing the wireless access point, the access information carrying therein a BSSID and an access password, in this way, after receiving the access information, the smart device may access the wireless access point according to the received BSSID and the access password, thereby solving the problem in the related art that the smart device cannot successfully be connected to the wireless router due to that the SSID received by the smart device cannot be recognized by the wireless router, and achieving the technical effect that the smart device can successfully be connected to the wireless router.

    [0045] Fig. 4A is a flow chart showing a method for accessing a wireless access point, according to another exemplary embodiment. In the present embodiment, the explanations are given by using an example in which the method is applied in the implementation environment shown in Fig. 1. As shown in Fig. 4A, the method may include the following steps.

    [0046] In step 401, a preset device accesses a wireless access point.

    [0047] In the present embodiment, the explanations are given by using a wireless router as the wireless access point, and using a mobile phone as the preset device.

    [0048] The mobile phone may search SSIDs of respective nearby wireless routers, exhibit an interface containing the searched respective SSIDs, receive a selection signal of selecting a certain SSID from the interface by a user, receive an access password of the SSID inputted by the user, and access the wireless router according to the SSID and the received access password.

    [0049] In step 402, the preset device detects whether the SSID of the wireless access point contains a preset character.

    [0050] The preset character is a character having different coding formats. For example, a Chinese character generally has two coding formats of UTF-8 and GBK, then the mobile phone may detect whether the stored SSID of the wireless router which has been accessed by it contains the Chinese character.

    [0051] In step 403, if a detection result is containing the preset character, the preset device broadcasts the access information of the wireless access point.

    [0052] If a detection result of the mobile phone is that the SSID of the wireless router contains the preset character, it indicates that the coding format of the SSID in the mobile phone may be different from the coding format of the original SSID of the wireless router, at this time, the mobile phone may broadcast the access information containing the BSSID of the wireless router and the access password. Alternatively, the access information may further include a SSID of the wireless router, which is not limited by the present embodiment.

    [0053] If a detection result is that no preset character is contained, it indicates that the coding format of the SSID in the mobile phone is the same as the coding format of the original SSID of the wireless router, then after the mobile phone broadcasts the existing SSID and the access password, the smart device may successfully be connected to the wireless router according to the SSID and the access password, thereby at this time, the mobile phone may broadcast the SSID of the wireless router and the access password, which is not elaborated by the present embodiment.

    [0054] Alternatively, after receiving a trigger signal from a user, the mobile phone may broadcast the access information. For example, when the user desires to make a refrigerator of his/her house access the wireless router, the user may trigger the mobile phone to broadcast the access information.

    [0055] In step 404, the smart device receives the access information of the wireless access point sent by the preset device.

    [0056] In step 405, the smart device unicasts a probe request carrying the BSSID.

    [0057] In step 406, the wireless access point receives the probe request unicasted by the smart device.

    [0058] After the smart device unicasts the probe request, respective devices nearby the smart device may receive the probe request, wherein, respective devices may include the wireless router corresponding to the BSSID.

    [0059] In step 407, the wireless access point sends a probe response to the smart device, wherein the probe response carries therein an original SSID of the wireless access point.

    [0060] After receiving the probe request, the respective devices may read an identification carried in the probe request, and when the read identification is an identification of one device itself, this device may feedback the probe response to the smart device. Thereby, when the wireless router receives the probe request and reads that the BSSID in the probe request is the BSSID of itself, the wireless router may feedback the probe response to the smart device. The probe response may carry therein an original SSID of the wireless router. The original SSID in the present embodiment indicates an SSID which may be recognized by the wireless router, and an SSID having the same coding format with the SSID stored in the wireless router.

    [0061] In step 408, the smart device receives a probe response sent by the wireless access point.

    [0062] In step 409, the smart device accesses the wireless access point according to the original SSID carried in the probe response and the access password.

    [0063] After receiving the probe response, the smart device may read the original SSID carried in the probe response, and then access the wireless router according to the read original SSID and the access password in the access information received previously.

    [0064] In an application scenario, when the user needs to connect the air conditioner of his/her house to the wireless router, he/she may connect the mobile phone to the wireless router at first, and after successfully accessing the wireless router, he/she may trigger the mobile phone to broadcast the BSSID and the wireless password of the wireless router. After receiving the information broadcasted by the mobile phone, the air conditioner in the house unicasts device finding information according to the received BSSID, and when the wireless router intercepts that the BSSID unicasted by the air conditioner is the BSSID of the wireless router itself, the wireless router sends feedback information to the air conditioner, the feedback information carrying therein an original SSID of the wireless router, then the air conditioner may successfully be connected to the wireless router according to the original SSID in the feedback information and the wireless password broadcasted by the mobile phone previously.

    [0065] In addition, the step 402 in the above embodiment is an optional step, and in an actual implementation, the preset device may directly perform the step 403. At this time, the step 403 may be accordingly replaced by that the preset device broadcasts the access information of the wireless access point. Moreover, when the access information broadcasted by the preset device includes the SSID, the BSSID, and the access password at the same time, as shown in Fig. 4B, before the step 405, the method may further include the following steps.

    [0066] In step 410, the smart device detects whether the SSID in the access information contains a preset character.

    [0067] The preset character is a character having different coding formats. This step is similar to the step 402 in the above embodiment.

    [0068] Accordingly, the step 405 may be replaced by: if a detection result is that the preset character is contained, the smart device unicasts a probe request carrying therein the BSSID.

    [0069] If a detection result is that the preset character is contained, it indicates that the coding format of the received SSID may be different from the coding format of the original SSID of the wireless router, then the smart device may not access the wireless router according to the received SSID, thereby at this time, the smart device may unicast a probe request carrying the BSSID.

    [0070] If a detection result is that the preset character is not contained, it indicates that the coding format of the received SSID is the same as the coding format of the original SSID of the wireless router, then the smart device may directly access the wireless router, thereby at this time, the smart device accesses the wireless access point according to the SSID in the access information and the access password, which is not elaborated by the present embodiment.

    [0071] In conclusion, in the method for accessing a wireless access point provided by the present embodiment, the BSSID and the access password broadcasted by the preset device is received, the device finding information is unicasted according to the received BSSID, the wireless access device sends the feedback information after receiving the device finding information, the feedback information containing an original SSID of the wireless access point, thereafter, the smart device may access the wireless access point according to the original SSID in the feedback information and the access password received at past; thereby solving the problem in the related art that the smart device cannot successfully be connected to the wireless router due to that the SSID received by the smart device cannot be recognized by the wireless router, and achieving the technical effect that the smart device can successfully be connected to the wireless router.

    [0072] In the above embodiments, the steps relating to the preset device side may be separately implemented as the method for accessing a wireless access point at the preset device side, the steps relating to the smart device side may be separately implemented as the method for accessing a wireless access point at the smart device side, and the steps relating to the wireless access point side may be separately implemented as the method for accessing a wireless access point at the wireless access point side.

    [0073] Hereinafter, the apparatus embodiments of the present disclosure for performing the method embodiments of the present disclosure are described. For details not disclosed in the apparatus embodiments of the present disclosure, the method embodiments of the present disclosure may be referred to.

    [0074] Fig. 5 is a block diagram illustrating an apparatus for accessing a wireless access point, according to an exemplary embodiment. The apparatus may be implemented as a whole or a part of the smart device 140 in the implementation environment shown in Fig. 1 by hardware, software, or a combination thereof. The apparatus may include: a first receiving module 510, a unicasting module 520, a second receiving module 530, and an access module 540.

    [0075] The first receiving module 510 is configured to receive access information of the wireless access point broadcasted by a preset device, the access information including a Basic Service Set Identifier (BSSID) and an access password of the wireless access point, and the preset device being a device having successfully accessed the wireless access point.

    [0076] The unicasting module 520 is configured to unicast device finding information according to the BSSID received by the first receiving module 510, the device finding information carrying therein the BSSID.

    [0077] The second receiving module 530 is configured to receive feedback information sent by the wireless access point, the feedback information carrying therein an original Service Set Identifier (SSID) of the wireless access point.

    [0078] The access module 540 is configured to access the wireless access point according to the original SSID carried in the feedback information received by the second receiving module 530 and the access password received by the first receiving module 510.

    [0079] In conclusion, in the apparatus for accessing a wireless access point provided by the present embodiment, the BSSID and the access password broadcasted by the preset device are received, the device finding information is unicasted according to the received BSSID, the wireless access device sends the feedback information after receiving the device finding information, the feedback information containing an original SSID of the wireless access point, thereafter, the smart device may access the wireless access point according to the original SSID in the feedback information and the access password received in the past, thereby solving the problem in the related art that the smart device cannot successfully be connected to the wireless router due to that the SSID received by the smart device cannot be recognized by the wireless router, and achieving the technical effect that the smart device can successfully be connected to the wireless router.

    [0080] Fig. 6 is a block diagram illustrating another apparatus for accessing a wireless access point, according to an exemplary embodiment. The apparatus may be implemented as a whole or a part of the smart device 140 in the implementation environment shown in Fig. 1 by hardware, software, or a combination thereof. The apparatus may include: a first receiving module 610, a unicasting module 620, a second receiving module 630, and an access module 640.

    [0081] The first receiving module 610 is configured to receive access information of the wireless access point broadcasted by a preset device, the access information including a Basic Service Set Identifier (BSSID) and an access password of the wireless access point, and the preset device being a device having successfully accessed the wireless access point.

    [0082] The unicasting module 620 is configured to unicast device finding information according to the BSSID received by the first receiving module 610, the device finding information carrying therein the BSSID.

    [0083] The second receiving module 630 is configured to receive feedback information sent by the wireless access point, the feedback information carrying therein an original Service Set Identifier (SSID) of the wireless access point.

    [0084] The access module 640 is configured to access the wireless access point according to the original SSID carried in the feedback information received by the second receiving module 630 and the access password received by the first receiving module 610.

    [0085] Alternatively, the unicasting module 620 is further configured to unicast a probe request carrying the BSSID.

    [0086] After the smart device unicasts the probe request, respective devices nearby the smart device may receive the probe request, wherein, respective devices may include the wireless router corresponding to the BSSID.

    [0087] Alternatively, the second receiving module 630 is further configured to receive a probe response sent by the wireless access point.

    [0088] After receiving the probe request, the respective devices may read an identification carried in the probe request, and when the read identification is an identification of one device itself, this device may feedback a probe response to the smart device. Thereby, when the wireless router receives the probe request and reads that the BSSID in the probe request is the BSSID of itself, the wireless router may feedback the probe response to the smart device. Accordingly, the smart device may receive the probe response via the second receiving module 630. The probe response may carry therein an original SSID of the wireless router. The original SSID in the present embodiment indicates an SSID which may be recognized by the wireless router, and an SSID having the same coding format with the SSID stored in the wireless router.

    [0089] In a possible implementation, the access information further includes an SSID of the wireless access point broadcasted by the preset device; and the apparatus further includes: a detection module 650.

    [0090] The detection module 650 is configured to, before unicasting the device finding information according to the BSSID by the unicasting module 620, detect whether the SSID in the access information contains a preset character, the preset character being a character having different coding formats.

    [0091] The unicasting module 620 is configured to, if a detection result of the detection module 650 is that the preset character is contained, perform the step of unicasting the device finding information according to the BSSID.

    [0092] If a detection result is that the preset character is contained, it indicates that the coding format of the received SSID may be different from the coding format of the original SSID of the wireless router, then the smart device may not access the wireless router according to the received SSID, thereby at this time, the smart device may unicast a probe request carrying the BSSID via the unicasting module 620.
