I have a laptop and an iPod Touch both of which connect to my wireless router, Linksys WRT54G, without any issues when the SSID broadcast is enabled. I'm using WPA Personal security mode.
But from what I read, for a more secure wireless network, it's better to turn the SSID broadcast off so that your network is not visible to others in the area looking for a wireless network.
But when I disable the SSID broadcast and turn on my laptop or the iPod Touch, both devices can't connect with my wireless network.
Is this supposed to be this way, or should my laptop and the iPod Touch be able to connect to my wireless network even if the SSID broadcast is disabled because they had already been connected to it previously?
So, again, when the SSID broadcast is enabled and I turn on my laptop and my iPod Touch, both connect automatically without any issues. But when the broadcast is disabled and I turn on the devices, both cannot connect to my wireless network.
