I have a Windows XP Pro SP2 PC, with a usb Dlink DWL G122 wireless adapter ...
It's configured to use Windows to manage the wireless networks, when I disable the broadcast of the SSID of my router then manually add the network to my preferred networks ... it never actually connects !! (automatically connect when within range is enabled).
I have tried this with both a Netgear and a BT wireless router !! the same.
The network it sitting there in my preferred networks list and doesn't connect, if I log into the router and enable SSID broadcast it will connect immediately !! again this is the case on both wireless routers.
Why doesnt this work !! why do I have to enable the SSID broadcast to be able to connect, then disable it after !
Please help ASAP
