Our Hub 3 is in Router mode, it also does not permit SSID broadcast to be disabled.

We should be able to change it as I can for the 5gz also have read on here it’s something to do with the hub updated which they still have not seemed to fix since 2022 hop the vm staffe will read and help

I'd forget about hiding the SSID it does not improve WiFi security but it sure does increase inconvenience.

Hey Sid72,

Welcome to the community and thanks for taking the time to post here on the forums.
I’m sorry to hear of the issues that you’re having with your hub settings, what is happening, when you try to hide the SSID, are you getting any error messages or is it just not doing it. What did the team advise over the phone, when you spoke to them?

Kind Regards,

SSID broadcast options for this band is greyed out and can’t change it but I have mange’s to change it for the 5ghz

I mange to change it for the 2nd one just change the ssid name then it allows you to change it.
