Can anyone tell me where I can find the information to identify/ modify/remove a "Hidden" wifi Network in the registry, or a file on the hard drive. I changed from Dish to Hughesnet satellite last week, and now have a wifi network identified only as "Hidden Network". I thought that it was a network setup left over from my Dish router, and have tried logging in using my old info, but it doesn't work. I realise it's not a threat to me, unless it's accessed by someone outside my system, but I want to know exactly what it is. Thanks in advance for any info available.

Thanks Joe C, I appreciate your response, even though it's not what I consider good news.  :mellow: I suppose it could be a real asset to have a back door available for Support to use, but I must wonder how many disgruntled former employees are around who have that access info.....  Oh well, that's just my 67 year old naturally acquired distrust showing through. lol Have a grand day, Joe.

That is not distrust, that is experience-based learning and understanding of human nature. (64 and counting...)
