Fredde, were you able to connect your devices to the hidden SSID?

I was also using fixed channel and n only.

So you were able to hid your SSIDs and use same info and all of your devices connected?
What are your current WiFi settings on the router for each radio please...


I replaced a DIR-855L with the DIR-880L (North America) last week.  I reused both SSID's and passwords from the old router on the new router.   I had the old SSID's hidden on the old router and set them both to "invisible" on this new router as well (confirmed with inSSIDer, everything hidden).   I was all set to have to go through every device I have to recreate all the profiles but I didn't need to.  Every device whether Windows, Android or IOS connected just fine with the original profiles without intervention at all.  I've had it running for a full week now and it's been rock solid.  

If it might make a difference, I've set fixed channels on both bands (as I run another wireless router for a separate network next to it so I don't ever have any overlap), plus set the 2.4ghz band to N only and the 5ghz band to a/n/ac only.  I haven't tried it any other way otherwise.

Tests when you can. Thanks. So you have the 2.4Ghz working with those settings. I'll try and find out the behavior of the Hidden feature to see if it's dependent upon certain settings or not.


Thank you.
