    Just setting up a new AC86U. When I hide the SSID's for the main wireless network, the Guest Network is also hidden. This is the case with both the stock firmware and Merlin firmware. If I unhide them, they both show up. On my old N66U I was able to hide the main wireless network but the Guest would still be visible.

    Hopefully I'm just missing something cause I really want it to work that way.

    Thanks everyone!

    This has been reported before. For example here.

    It looked like it was a limitation in the new firmware platform but John built some test firmware that appeared to get around the problem.
