AP12 broadcasting "Hidden SSID"?

  • 1.  AP12 broadcasting "Hidden SSID"?

    Posted 10 days ago
    Hello,

    I have recently set up an AP12 and configured it to broadcast a "corporate" and "guest" network, operating on both frequencies. However, when doing a spectrum analysis, I see a "Hidden SSID" being broadcast from the AP as well, on the 5ghz band. I see on other threads that this may be related to meshing between multiple AP's but I only have the one AP12. Why else would it be broadcasting this? Is there a way to disable it? At this point, I'm hesitant to keep it in production as I see this as a security issue.

    Thanks,
    Dylan

    Instant On has auto-mesh capability that automatically detects and setup mesh connections, this is why you see the 5GHz hidden SSID for Mesh only.
