Code: Select all
# Send empty SSID in beacons and ignore probe request frames that do not # specify full SSID, i.e., require stations to know SSID. # default: disabled (0) # 1 = send empty (length=0) SSID in beacon and ignore probe request for # broadcast SSID # 2 = clear SSID (ASCII 0), but keep the original length (this may be required # with some clients that do not support empty SSID) and ignore probe # requests for broadcast SSID ignore_broadcast_ssid=0
I've tried 0,1 and 2. Broadcasts SSID regardless of this setting using the on-board adapter. Works fine using the Edimax adapter from my PI2 (which is my fallback plan) but I'm trying to avoid using a USB adapter.Read the fine sample config... Try setting 0 or 2.
Understood. But as noted,joan wrote:Hiding the SSID has no useful security benefit. So if that's the reason you want to hide the SSID you are probably wasting your time looking for a solution.
...making an unfamiliar wifi SSID in it's vicinity a little curious to whomever it might be surveilling. Generally insurance cheats and philandering spouses don't sit around watching Wifi Analyzer. Nevertheless I'd rather the DVR in a van parked across the street not be a readily available selection when they reconnect their iPhone to their home router.billybrowneyes wrote:This is installed in a surveillance vehicle.
