  Why do most of my devices lose the wifi connection if I hide my network name? 


Re: Connectivity

Because they then do not know how to find the network. If you hide the SSID broadcast, then you'll need to manually enter the SSID into the individual device's WiFi settings. 


FWIW, turning off the SSID really doesn't provide increased security. A determined hacker can still have their way.
