Hello All,

I am using the ASUS RT-AC66U as Access Point in Repeater Mode. I have both a 2.4 & 5G WiFi access setup. I need to hide the SSID for these networks but these options don't seem to be available in Repeater Mode.

I am pretty new to this router but would like to know if there night be a work around of sorts that would allow me to hide my SSID n this configuration.

Perhaps a telnet in and edit a text file or custom firmware. Anything advice would help thanks.

You can't hide an SSID today. Even when you do, you haven't. :)

Add /Advanced_Wireless_Content.asp to the end of your URL and see what happens. You can hide the SSID and it's working. I just tested it for you.

This was exactly what I was looking to do. Was unaware of the advanced menu for control.

Great answer, Thank you!
