hidden network when hub wifi turned off

When I turn off the wifi from the virgin Hub

    I still have this hidden network broadcasting from it ( as detected on a wifi scanner )

  when I unplug hub power, hidden network disappears,

why if I turn off the hub wifi is it still broadcasting ?

Hello.

This would be the public WiFi network on all vm routers that serves virgin go WiFi.

I would not worry about it.

Jim.

You can opt out of public WiFi on you account but might not work so if you want to stop it use modem mode.

Re: hidden network when hub wifi turned off

thanks ,

 

I thought I had signed out of the community share bit, I do not use outside virgin wifi

I did use modem mode for a while, 

     but was finding the firewall was using was having problems keeping up with the 350 M download speed,

      what firewall device do you use ?

I use ZYXEL security firewalls but you likely need a home router that does hardware NAT for speed like this:
