Remember... hiding an SSID is NOT secure. There are many, many tools out there that will find the SSID name pretty quickly. Not only is not a security feature, it does cause issues with some clients. If you have to allow unauthenticated access to the SSID, you should consider using the captive portal feature in the controller to at least force the users to accept an "Acceptable Use Policy".

As others have said, this isn't a real security measure, there are a number of ways to discover the SSID even with it hidden, so be sure to use strong authentication and encryption as well.
