Hidden Network

I had Gen 5 installed 2 days ago. Initial wifi setup went smooth. Yesterday as I opened my network and internet settings I discovered a hidden network icon along with my printer and 2.4g and 5g icons. This hidden network is generated from my Gen5 router. When I disconnect the power cord on the Gen5 router the 2.4g, 5g, and hidden network disappear. Any idea what this hidden network is or how it can be removed?

It's meant for detecting and operating with the wifi extender. No, it cannot be removed.
That said, it is not hackable/harmful in any way.
