Would anyone know if it's possible to grab the SSID/Network Name of a wireless router via php?

Ultimately I'd like the ability for my mobile site to know the router SSID/Network Name the user is using to access my website.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Stephen :D

No this isn't possible. I'm fairly certain that what SSID or router you are using to connect is visible only to the OS.
Step one with troubleshooting queries is always to echo back the full query and run it to see if you get an error.
If you are asking for help with code, please provide the code, the expected result and the actual result, or you will likely not get any replies.
