  • It is not entirely clear to me what you are trying to configure.

    in general 'hiding the SSID' of a wireless network is configuring the access point to not broadcast it's name, so it remains hidden for most users.

    If you are using the builtin 'Hosted network' functionality to turn you windows pc in a virtual access point, you cannot configure these kind of details.

    if you are using a third party software to do this, you shoyuld refer to the software manual/vendor or developer.

    If you are using a hardware access point, refer to the documentation/vendor for assistance.
