Verizon Jetpack® MiFi® 8800L - Turn SSID Broadcast On / Off
Every wireless access point (e.g., router, hotspot) has a network name or SSID (Service Set Identifier) assigned to it.
The SSID is typically broadcast by default, but can be turned off for greater security.
When turned off, any device attempting to connect for the first time must know the SSID name and password to set up a manual connection to it.
For the easiest connection experience, it's recommended to leave broadcast on.
