    I'm confused on this one and I'm paying bills on line. I have a linksys router hooked up. The WRT54G. I have all my passwords set and have the WPA2 set. I'm just not sure if I should enable or disable the SSID broadcast. I have read articles on this matter and get different opinions on each article!
    HELP me please....

    Just leave SSID on. Turning it off does nothing to enhance security. Its basically the same thing as removing the numbers from your house hoping that people won't be able to find it.

    Some devices don't work right with the SSID off so its easiest to just leave it on.
