Alright, I have 4 computers on my linksys g router....Three of them work fine when I dont broadcast the SSID...but one of them will not work if the SSID is not broadcasted? What gives, I set it up the same way...


Any ideas?

I'm assuming their XP machines, just keep messing with the wireless options. I've seen this before and dont really have a good solutions other then disable XP's wireless management and use the software that comes with your wireless adapter.

Actually, qball, that is exactly the problem. The XP Zero Wireless configuration cannot connect to a wireless router that doesn't beacon. I ended up solving the problem by disabling the XP configurator, and using the D-Link one.

I tried setting his up using the linksys monitor software...and it still will not connect unless the SSID is transmitted....My computer, which has teh EXACT USB ADAPTER & the same linksys software works fine....

Any other ideas?


thanks

Have you tried an uninstall/re-install? If not, try it. It might just work.
