Hide or broadcast the SSID for a WiFi
By default, a WiFi network (SSID or VAP) broadcasts its network name (also referred to
as the SSID) so that WiFi clients can detect the SSID in their scanned network lists. For
additional security, you can turn off the SSID broadcast and hide the SSID so that users
must know the SSID to be able to join the WiFi network.
To hide or broadcast the network name for a WiFi network:
1. Open a web browser from a computer or mobile device that is connected to the
access point/router network.
2. Enter http://www.routerlogin.net in the address field.
If you are not connected to the access point/router network but to the same network
as the access point/router, enter the IP address that is assigned to the access
point/router. If you do not know the IP address, see Find the IP address of the access
point/router on page 29.
The Sign-In page displays. You are prompted to sign in with your NETGEAR account.
If the access point/router is not connected to the Internet, you are prompted to sign
in with the local login credentials (see Log in to the access point/router when it is
not connected to the Internet on page 28).
3. Click the Login button.
