Default WiFi problem: non broadcasting SIDS - 10-19-2009, 09:09 PM

Anyone else having a problem connecting to networks with non-broadcasting SIDS?

I work for a company with three separate campuses. On two campuses our wireless network broadcasts its SID and I have no problem connecting. On the others I cannot connect. I can't get my Mini 9 to connect, even while using the Wizard. It claims to find the network when I supply the SID, but just won't connect.

Recently we changed one of our wireless networks from non-broadcasting to broadcasting (due to a hardware compatibility issue) and from that point onward I've been able to connect no problem. But that still leaves our main campus.

Only potential issue is that all three campuses use the same SID and the same WEP key, so when I try to connect to the non-broadcasting network I'm informed that a profile already exists for it.
