On Mon, 25 Oct 2004 15:49:43 -0400, TELECOM Digest Editor asked
about disabling SSID on WiFi in response to a message from
Monty Solomon.

Consensus, on alt.internet.wireless newsgroup would seem to be:

"Forget about disabling SSID. it provides no additional security and
just screws things up. Disabling SSID is also contrary to 802.11."
