Hello Everyone- I have SSID broadcasting turned off on my Wireless Home Network. My question is when I want to connect to my network from another computer in my house how can I connect if there is no network being broadcasted and therefore no network being detected to connect to? Thanks in advance for your time and help. :whistling:

Usually you just have to disable the SSID broadcast from your router. Than you have to manually have to type in your wireless name and key if you have one manually in the advanced wireless settings.

also...most of the time your wireless card will detect the network as "unknown SSID" or something to that effect...you just have to type in the SSID when you press connect
