Hi, using WiFi analyzer I've identified a signal being broadcast by my C6 router (set up as an access point) which mirrors both my 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks. The mirror networks use the same channels and Mac addresses and disappear when I power off the C6. I've not got guest mode enabled on the C6. Will this hidden network interfere with my connection? And does anyone know how to get rid of the hidden networks?

Probably are related to OneMesh function. Don't worry about it.

 

Best Regards

Yeh, there not much info out there about it but I did note a few people saying this. Will they cause any interference though? I.e. everything I've read about choosing the best channel for wifi advised to choose a less busy channel so will having another ssid sat right on top of each other not cause interference? If it doesnt then no probs
