How do I turn SSID beaconing off?

I'm trying to turn my SSID beaconing off, but I can't figure it out. Nor is it adequately explained in the tutorials. Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Thomas Mahoney

There is no point in hiding the SSID anyway, it's a public name and known to everyone out there.

It is not recommended to turn off SSID broadcast but yes it is done within the Router.
