Hide SSID Settings

To hide your router’s SSID, go to Setup > Wireless Setup. This will display the Wireless Settings where you can configure your wireless network. First, type in the name of your wireless network in the SSID box. To hide the SSID (Service Set Identification) check the radio button next to the Hidden SSID option. This will hide your wireless network from the clients searching for wireless connections and thereby protect your network from hackers.
