How do I change my hidden network to unhidden?

That's not your home network's broadcast name (SSID). The "hidden" network is used for Comcast's wireless home security system.

Re: How do I unhide ssid

I have several machines on my network.  Two are Windows 8.1.  One of them sees both 2.4gh and 5gh conncections.  The other does not see the 5gh connetion at all.  It only shows and will conncect to the 2.4gh connection.  How do I get it to connect to the faster one?

Check to see if that machine's WiFi adapter actually supports the 5 GHz band. If it doesn't, it won't even be able to see it.
