Configuring Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160

hello

My laptop has an intel dual bad wireless AC 3160 Board . I already configured a wifii Hotspot but i pretend to hide the SSID by No broadcast SSID option.

Is it possible to do it with this kind of board.

Thanks in advance.

Hello sebas866,

 

 

In regards to hostpot functionality, we would like to inform that Intel does not provide the software tools to achieve this, therefore, you might want to engage the software provider about your inquiry. Our adapters are not designed to work as Access Points.

 

 

In our best effort, if you are referring to the Mobile Hotspot feature in Windows® 10, we checked in one of our test systems supporting this Microsoft* feature and there is no option to hide the SSID, however, if this is the case, you might want to check further with Microsoft Support about this.
