Hello @scintron99, we are happy to help prevent outside users from accessing your  BGW210  Wi-Fi gateway by hiding or disabling your network name (SSID).



On our support article you will learn how to disabled your Wi-Fi Network Name (SSID), your name will no longer appear in the Available Wireless Networks screens. 


Let us know how this works out for you.
