    The long-agreed standard limit on SSID is 32 characters.

    Modifying this would violate the standards. This would caused interoperability problems.

    The SSID standard: english, español, chinees...

    The standard is I only working with the standard characters for the ssid.

    Some characters will cause trouble, like the ü, û, ñ, é,..... my linksys devices routers and client all worked fine with these.
    But there are clients that can not accept these characters.

    Turning off SSID

    Suppose I turn off SSID. Can I connect to to my network? Is the network then invisible? How do I connect to it?

    tbh i see no point in turning off the SSID if using wireless. most wireless client utilities need a SSID name to setup a profile so the client can connect.

    disabling SSID does not hide the wireless signal. netstumbler will always find the signal.

    I agree - it also more likely your neighbour sets up their new router on or adjacent to yours if they can't see it easily!
