Wireless AP Issue
We have a wireless AP that does not broadcast it's SSID and one of our Vista
Machines has a problem with it.

If we set it up to connect and give it the proper name and Wep Key. it works
just fine. However when we leave and come back then it finds the access
point as an unnamed network and you have to configure it again. Then I end
up haveing a second connection Made over time we end up have Wireless Points
configure to the same AP

it would look like

companySSID
companySSID 1
companySSID 2

Any ideas are appreciated.

RE: Wireless AP Issue
So, have you tried to make and save a profile in
"Manage wireless networks"?

Or you just click on the unnamed tile and then enter the name and key when
prompted?

Re: Wireless AP Issue
I have the same problem. I made a profile in "Manage wireless networks", but
that doesn't help.
When I cold boot the system it usually finds the AP, but when I returns from
sleep mode it usually doesn't find the AP.

Re: Wireless AP Issue
I have done both with the same results it only happens on Non Broadcasting
AP's

Which I know is not recommended but convincing others of this will take
time.
