I have set hidessid option to an Intersil PRISM 2.5 based cart, acting
as hostap, and the ssid stills gets broadcasted, aparently. Other
FreeBSD systems and the Windows software supplied by the vendor can find
the SSID while scanning.
I would like to know if hidessid should hide it in ordinary scans like
those ones, and how to test it better to see if ssid stills broadcasted
in the beacons, if it is possible (say, any debug option or tool).
