I have two laptops connected wirelessly to the internet through a Netgear WPN824 wireless router. The configuration has been set to disable SSID broadcast, and has been working fine for months. Recently one of the laptops lost it's wireless connection, so I hooked up the ethernet cable and enabled SSID broadcast. I then disconnected the ethernet cable, waited awhile, and the wireless connection returned. So I then disabled the SSID broadcast, and everything seems to be back to normal and working wirelessly the way I want.
Is there some setting that I should change on the laptop to keep me from losing the wireless connection while SSID broadcast is set to disabled? This laptop is only used wirelessly at this access point.
