I wasn't sure where to post this, if it needs to be moved to the Linux forum please do.
This is fairly detailed but I'll try to keep it brief:
Currently stuck using wifi/would prefer wired but out of my hands.
When previously using Win7, I was able to disable something called network discovery, which if my understanding is correct kept everything on the network hidden/semi-hidden from each other.
There was also a command line parameter for the wireless card that could be set to only have the wireless "see" my chosen network, and none of the neighboring ones. I can find the exact command syntax if needed/it was along the lines of:
"netsh wlan *something* ssid denyall"-to block everything, then
"netsh wlan add-filter allow-ssid "chosen network"- to allow the correct one only.
First, am I understanding these correctly, and second, is there a similar way to do this with Linux? There are several other networks around here and I just want to avoid any issues and make things as secure as possible. Been trying to figure it out for a while.
Hope that made sense
