Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 wifi VSDL/ADSL modem router

Hello,

My friend wants to use her internet on her lap top via my router. When she tries to use it, it says the network is hidden. How can we rectify this so she can use it?

 

Thanks Regards Jenny.

Hello,

Assuming you talk of Windows 10:

 

Adding a Wi-Fi network

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Click on Network & Security.
  3. Click on Wi-Fi.
  4. Click the Manage known networks link.

On top of the Manage known networks:

  • Click the Add a new network button.
  • Type the hidden network name

 

For the network admin: Be aware that hiding the network name from the beacon is just security by obscurity, the name can be detected regardless - just not by common Wi-Fi client as embedded in the popular operating systems.
