I've just set up a hostap with NetBSD/i386 and a PCMCIA NetGear WG511T (ath0).
Other wifis can do web through it, but windows gets the SSID (via broadcast I suppose).
I want to secured the network a bit more.
* How (if possible) can I disable the SSID broadcast (on the NetBSD hostap) ?
* Is broadcast enabled on wifi "workstation" (netbsd w/o hostap mode, or windows) ?
aka, when some windows is configured (by hand), does it broadcast SSID too ?
or is there only that "keep alive" thing ?
(Yes, next thing is setp IPsec ;)
