Linksys EA4500 Firmware

[ Edited ]

Hi! I downloaded a new firmware EA Series Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Firmware Ver.2.1.39.144146 (10/31/2012) and I can't find the option that hides my SSID. How to select the channel? Help, please!

There is no option to hide the SSID on the cloud firmware. Thing is, disabling SSID broadcast doesn't really give any real security benefit. Most wireless devices (latest) nowadays detects hidden networks. By the way, to select which channel to use, just go to Wireless>under the Wireless tab click Edit beside 2.4 Ghz or 5 Ghz.

Try to use this tool /inssider/ to select the best channel that you can use. As for the security mode, select WPA2-personal.

Ok! My RSSI -60, -61, -62 max -63 (11 channel). This is normal?

Yes that is normal. I will suggest to select the channel with the less interference and does not overlap with other wireless devices available in the area.
