1140 AP Other Network

I'm configuring an 1140 and trying to make it invisable to any user that doesnt know the SSID. The SSID is not broadcast, however my clients see "Other Network" in their list of available networks. Short of turning off the AP is there any way through the 1140's configuration to prevent this "Other Network" from showing up in the clients available networks list.

They must've saved the SSID in the client profiles before you disabled "Broadcast SSID".

Besides, non-Broadcast SSID is "old school".  You can download wireless sniffers and will EXACTLY tell you what the non-broadcasting SSID is.

hello,

You can not prevent the clients see "Other Network"

if broadcast from SSID is disabled, the AP sends the beacon hidden and

the clients see a network bat not known.

in the case can only enter the SSID (WLAN Network) manually.

I would suggest an installation point. one AP broadcast the SSID and the clients see the WLAN as available.

when You have more then one SSID You mast use the BSSID and guest mode.
