It doesn't hide your access point, at all. It still appears as an
access point that can be used. Anybody, and everybody, can see that
there's one there. It just doesn't have a name associated with it.
And the lack of a name doesn't prevent anyone from using it.
No. You MUST have the name to associate with the AP. But all you have
to do is force a current user of the AP to reassociate to get the name.
There are now attack tools that will do this for you....
