How to Hide a BSNL Wireless Network?

Most modern wireless routers have a feature to hide the SSID. As I explained before, SSID is the technical term for Wireless Network name.

If you recall the screenshot while configuring the wireless network, there is a feature called hide SSID. You can see this below the network name.

If you choose the Yes button, BSNL modem will not broadcast the SSID. It means no one will see your wireless network when anyone scan for available networks on their devices.

Never forget to hit the confirm button after making changes.
