R7000P How to "unhide" the router ID so it can be accessed via cell phone

I have a netgear Nighthawk R7000p router.  When we first set it up, we chose to "hide" its identity because we were in a dense community of many users and routers.  That has proven to be a bad decision because we can't access to router to set up new cell phones, transfer apps and files, etc.  So, how do I "unhide" the ID?

   How did you hide it in the first place?

 

   Did you consider trying this radical concept (which works for some
people):

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual (at least).  Read.  Look for
"Basic Wireless Settings" and "Enable SSID Broadcast".  Further reading
might not hurt, either.
