Connect to 5GHZ WI-FI that's not broadcasting

Ok i talked to the people threw email and they have no clue what i'm talking about.
I'll ask again here.

Why can't this phone connect to a none broadcasting 5GHZ 802.11ac Wi-Fi router?

 

Thank you...

Re: Connect to 5GHZ WI-FI that's not broadcasting

Yes i like i said i took his advise and no one from that support system can help me.

So i'm coming back here for one last shot.

You adding it to the end of my old post does this convo no justice, no ones going to read the new title.

So this will go unanswered just because you moved it here.

Can i have a repost of this to get a fair clean start and a second chance since this first post got convaluted?

Thank you...

Re: Connect to 5GHZ WI-FI that's not broadcasting

you gota brodcast your SSID for any wifi devices to detect it :/ or it will not find the network since broadcast is turned off inside your router.

 

Best option is to use something named MAC-Allow list or w.e it's called most routers have this so doing it this way any un-authorized MAC address will be thrown off from wifi even if user has correct pass it will still throw them off since their MAC-Address isn't in the allowed list.

@l337g0g0 i suggest you calm down and stop being disrespectful. The posts have been merged here because there is no need to start so many topics on the same subject.
