Hi, crazycdn. Have you tried resetting and reconfiguring them again? What's the current LED status of the Wemo Minis? Try to check this on a different handheld device if they are also seeing the plug's setup SSID. Make sure that the OS are on their latest versions. Please update us of the results.

Yes, I have tried to reset and re-configure them. The LED status of the Wemo's are normal/typical. There is no LED light on the unit until it is turned on physically or by voice command.
They appear on all handheld devices including my Access Point ESSID scan (which scans all wifi broadcasting units in the vicinity)
The firmware is completely upgraded. All devices are operating as expected and are network communication to them is functional (ping is successfull from a host computer)/mobile device.
This is becoming a big issue since it is putting unwanted congestion onto my wifi network and interfering with surrounding networks based on the quantity of devices I have.
Firmware Versions of the devices that are currently acting up....

Just an update:
After rebooting my switches the networks did go away (as expected) and just did some further investigation. My access points that broadcast my wifi network for my WeMo devices is set to auto reboot on Sunday's at 3AM every week. This seems to be where the problem is stemming from.
What I'm suspecting is that the firmware on the WeMo switches are not optimized for re-establishing a connection after a temp loss of connectivity. Once the AP is brought back online, other devices successfully re-connect but the WeMo Mini's struggle and continue to Broadcast even though they eventually re-establish a link with the configured wifi SSID.
I'm not sure if having a hidden SSID is a contributing variable in this or not, but I'd be interested to know if the others responding to this thread have hidden SSID's as well.
I did some packet capturing on one of the WeMo devices during the time it was broadcasting the setup SSID, and did notice a lot of continuous DHCP requests from the WeMo device, but the device did not respond correctly. It was almost like the DHCP process was in a loop of some sort.
For now I have disabled auto reboot of my wireless AP and will update with any issues, but for now - this really needs to be looked at by the devs.
Here's a ping report where you can see the PING response/activity to the WeMo device...

We understand your security concern. However, it doesn't pose any danger to your wireless network or Wemo. Once the setup is completed, the Wemo changes from setup mode to operation mode. Know that we are already looking for a fixed but there is no lead time yet. Just keep your Wemo devices up-to-date. Loopback for further assistance.
