I have this router setup as AP. The moment I turn off the "broadcast SSID" feature, my Iphone cannot find the network even though I try to type in the SSID name and password.

Any advice on this problem.

If hide ssid, make people think your wifi is important, may make them want to hack the access point

Thank you. I was told to hide SSID to secure the wifi. First time using the AP mode.

This isnt true actually. A hacker can always sniff out the frames the client is sending out to establish the SSID of the AP.

Some folks will tell you that turning off SSID broadcasting is useless because a hacker can use packet sniffing software to capture the SSID even if broadcasting is turned off. That's true, but why make it easier for them? That's like saying burglars can buy lockpicks, so locking the door is useless. Turning off broadcasting won't deter a serious hacker, but it will protect from the casual "piggybacker" (for example, a next door neighbor who notices the new network and decides to try connecting "just for fun").

It all have to do with human psychology.
If you hide your SSID -> something to hide cause you don't want people to know -> people get curious -> hack you.

Hi Folks

I really need some help with this router.

House have already laid the network cables, thus running physical line.
1 PC, 2 Laptops

Situation
When the laptop HP DV6, runs utorrent.
All computers on the network will still have connectivity for any torrenting running in their computers.
All computers on the network will get gateway timeout, website taking too long to response.... Thus not even able to surf net.
Try using cmd to ping website. Able to ping yahoo, google with good ping timings. All the same for 3 computers.

Only this HP DV6 laptop will cause this above mentioned issue when using utorrent. Tried updating the network card drivers to no avail. DV6 was bought like a few months ago. Dun wan reinstall as laptop is not mine.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

No.
Yellowfin's problem is one fine example why hiding SSID is self-creating trouble.

Not when people think hiding SSID is a security feature on its own, and do so without bothering with encryption. Basic security principles should already tell you that security cannot be achieved via obscurity. If your network is already properly secured with WPA2, there isn't even a need to hide it.
