Wireless networking with Windows XP
Posted on 2006-06-09
Not sure where I should put this post, but I'm looking for a program that I can use to scan for wireless networks that don't broadcast their SSID. The reason I want to do this is because I've been having trouble with users losing connection and being unable to reconnect. For example, some of them would disconnect manually. This will switch from Automatic to Manual. The problem now is that manual doesn't work because our SSID doesn't show up. I'd rather keep SSID broadcast off, but want them to be able to see it as well. I heard of programs that will show, "Network with SSID broadcast off", then the user will have to type in the SSID to connect.
Does anyone know of such a program?
