Verizon Jetpack® MiFi® 8800L - Turn SSID Broadcast On / Off

Note Notes:

  • Every wireless access point (e.g., router, hotspot) has a network name or SSID (Service Set Identifier) assigned to it.
  • The SSID is typically broadcast by default, but can be turned off for greater security.
  • When turned off, any device attempting to connect for the first time must know the SSID name and password to set up a manual connection to it.
    Note For the easiest connection experience, it's recommended to leave broadcast on.
