IoT SSID Broadcast

Hi, is there any way to disable the IoT SSID broadcast on this mesh wifi 7 system? I have it unchecked and it doesn't allow me to connect which is the expected behavior but why would it broadcast the SSID?

The guest network is disabled and there is no SSID broadcasted, i would assume the IoT network would behave the same way?

Running latest firmware 9.10.2.3

Re: IoT SSID Broadcast

Where are you disabling it? On the RBR web page? 

What browser are you using? 

Mines disabled with using MS Edge. 

Try enabled it, then disabling it. After you apply the change, powrer OFF all RBS and then the RBR for 30 second, then back ON with the RBR first, check to see if the IoT network SSID is present, if not, power ON the RBS. Wait for ready. Check for IoT SSID again.

Thanks for the suggestion, i tried these steps and the IoT network is not broadcasting the SSID anymore.

Glad you got it working. Be sure to save off a back up configuration to file for safe keeping. Saves time if a reset is needed.
