Hiding SSID prevents connection

I just got my nighthawk R6700 router the other day and its really awesome and greatly upgraded the old stock router my ISP gave me.

 

however one problem I'm having is when I hide my connection I can't connect to my network anymore, it'll always say it can't connect to the network but once I make it visible it connects with no problems.

 

It not a horrible problem, but I generally like to hide my network just for an added layer of security even if its just a tad safer.

 

My biggest question is, is having my wireless router in AP the reason for this?

 

Thanks

after doing some reading on the topic, I'm going to just move on, I use a strong password so I guess that's all I really can do.
