Hiding your wireless network

I'm new to Wifi networking, and I've just installed a router yesterday. Is there a way to hide my home network from other people?

  1. Yes there is.

    Under the wireless settings in your router's setup/config page, there should be an option to disable "SSID Broadcast." This will make the wireless network "invisble." In order for you to cononect a computer to the network after you have disabled the SSID Boradcast, you will need to select the "conenct manually" option in windows and input your networks name and WEP/WPA/whatever security key you may be using in order to successfully join the network.

    Hope this helps.
