Hi, Decided to disable my SSID Broadcast and thought it would be a simple task :( Got that wrong !! All seemed ok until i had to go out earlier so i switched off the Wireless button on the Lappy, Don't like it connected to the net whilst away (Remote programes give me the willies) and was in the middle of a HD Drive scan so didn't want to stop the process. Got back in and tried to connect to my router but it didn't show up in the list of available networks to connect to...I guess that's because i had disabled my SSID so that worked, But the only way to get re/connected was to Enable SSID.. Now call me stupid but i thought me Lappy would still connect without the SSID broadcast enabled ?? Am i doing something seriously daft or what ?

I get the usuall Linksys connection drops, But this is getting up my nose !
