    The dialogue for disabling (turning off) SSID is "create a closed network".

    What is the dialogue for enabling (turning on) SSID? The closest thing I have found is "create an extended network"? Is that the one?

    OK, the dialogue box is the same. "Create an extended network" is not turning SSID on and off.

    To turn SSID on and off:

    Applications>Utilities>Airport Utility>Manual Setup>Airport>Wireless>Wireless Options>Create A Closed Network (click checkbox on or off to turn SSID on or off)
