My relatives laptop has no problem connected to WiFi even when the router is not broadcasting. Its likely that some other tablet setting has been turned off. This is a relatives tablet and network so I can't experiment. On the tablet I'd turn off automatic WiFi scanning to save battery. Could that be the culprit?
Basically I'm asking if this is a Tab S issue that other owners have experienced?

I was setting up a new Tab S 10.5 on a relatives network. The access point (router) is not set to broadcast. Of course the first time I wanted to connect I made the router visible and then the Tabs S connect per usual. After that I change the router back to invisible (no broadcasting). I fully expected the tablet to automatically reconnect with the router but that did not happen. I toggled the tablet's WiFi but I could only reconnect after I made the router visible again.
