Found Archer C7 v5 or Archer A7 v5 is emitting hidden network? Read it to get more details.

With wifi analyzer, we can find that Archer A7 v5 / Archer C7 v5 (both with latest firmware) has 2 SSIDs on each band. 

Actually, one of them is the normal SSID, which can be detected and connected by the wireless devices; 


The other is the hidden SSID, which is used to build up the one mesh wireless network system. It cannot be detected by the common wireless devices. 


See picture attached below: 



There is another picture reported by end-user.



Like the existing Deco mesh package products, the specific hidden network with high-intensity random password can guarantee the security of the network.


So please be assured of it, it is used to build up the one mesh network. Not a bug.

Thank you for sharing this information. Because the equipment and its application to my gallery is very effective

Does this apply to TP-Link Archer A6 as well? Firmware: Archer A6(US)_V2_190923

Wifi Analyzer is also showing 2 Hidden SSIDs 1 each for 2.4GHz and 5Ghz band. @Kevin_Z 

This is a very useful thing in the house. Especially when a lot of people use the internet access point. By the way, there is a good article about how to crack an email password.
