I've just had a Hub 3 installed, replacing a Super Hub 2ac, to allow connection of my home phone service to the fibre network.
I've been setting things up and find I'm unable to disable SSID Broadcasting the option is greyed out in Hub3 Setting Advanced Settings -> Wireless -> Security. Is there something I can change so that I can alter the setting please?
1. Is that not the "Disable Channel Optimisation" suggested by newappollo? That didn't work unfortunately, the boxes were still greyed out. Any further suggestions you have will be much appreciated.
2. It's something I've always done, since the very first router I ever had. I know it won't/can't stop a determined person from finding it, but it does mean that those who live around me don't know how many different networks, and their names, I have in my house. Where possible I prefer wired connections rather than wifi, so I have personal routers in the 3 rooms I use most (living room, kitchen and bedroom) that I can wire devices into. Only my phone uses wifi.
Hey @gforgabagool, thanks for reaching out to us and a warm welcome to the Virgin Media forums.
I'm sorry to hear you're struggling to disable the broadcasting SSID on the Virgin Media Hub 3. I have attached a video here which shows how to alter, change, split and disable the SSID. Let us know how it goes and if you still need assistance.
