Network Security Design

Is it possible to hide the SSID and Network Range from a client running a wireless sniffer with the adapter in monitor mode ?

Re: Network Security Design

It is not possible to hide SSID . Many vendor including Cisco has option to

disable ssid in brodcast packet . This option disables ssid in beacon packets

but it does not prevent the ssid to get trasnmitted in the probe req and probe response .
