    What is "Hidden network" or "öther network"?


    Hi,

    My PC at home detects this "hidden network". I would like to know more about where is this "hidden network" is coming from. Also, on the win7 laptop, it says "other network". Any ideas?

    It means what it exactly states. No SSID assigned to it, it will always state that. There is nothing that you need to know about it, because most times you are picking up the utility systems for remote utility meters.

    All of the ones in my town are set on Channel 11.
