    I can't get rid of a hidden network on windows 10. It weakens my network connection. I have a lot of trouble keeping my network on line. Tried right-clicking, etc and it doesn't work.

  2. Delete "hidden network"

    Hi,

    Deleting or Blocking available networks can only be done using Command Prompt. Follow the steps below:

    • Open Command Prompt.
    • Type netsh wlan add filter permission=block ssid="WLAN name"
      networtype=infrastructure (Replace WLAN name with "hidden network" or the name of the wireless network you want to block) and press
      Enter.
    • Close Command Prompt.
    To remove/delete the network from the block list. Replace "add" with "delete" on the command in step two.

    Looking forward to your response.

    Hi there, thanks for your question.

    When you look at the list of available networks, the "Hidden Network" is not a particular WiFi network but instead a generic indicator to show you that there are networks in range that have hidden their SSID, or network name.

    This is normal behaviour, and presents no issue for you. You can ignore the hidden networks.

    Please let me know if you need further information! Thanks!
