Model: TL-WR940N  
Hardware Version: V6
Firmware Version: 3.19.1 Build 180119 Rel.59618n

Hi, I was trying to configure my network and I want to hide my main SSID but it will include the guest network as well. Is there a workaround that if I hide my main SSID, it will not include the guest network? Thank you!

May I know how did you hide the main network, by unchecking the "Enable SSID Broadcast"? Is the Guest Network still shows a check mark on the web page? The main network and the guest network should be independent.

 

You can try to update the firmware of the router to the latest, then confirm if you have the same issue:

Yeah, that's how I did it. If I uncheck the ""Enable SSID Broadcast", it will also hide the guest network. I already have the latest firmware for the router.

@Jan_Ranile  Thank you. That would be the current design, we will keep an eye on this kind of feedback, then will check if we need to optimize this feature in the future.
