cant get my captivate to connect to my hidden network. I set up the wifi on the phone and the key with my network un-hidden and it connects immediately. but with my network hidden it says that the network is out of range. New to android my last phone WM 6.5 had a "this network is hidden" button to tick and worked just fine. cant find an option like that on my captivate.
If the router has MAC addresses restricted it will not have the new phone in the authorized list. In order for me to use the wifi network at my daughter's house I have to install my new phone's mac address into the router's mac table.
thx Frank but no its set for a wep key. when the router is un-hidden the IP and wep key work and i conect right way but when the SSID is hidden the phone cant find it and I cant figure out a way to tell the phone that its hidden.
That did it thank you very much. Didnt realize that this was an android issue and not a captivate specific issue...again thank you
I have my wireless network simply set not to broadcast, so it doesn't show up when scanning for wifi. I clicked ADD A NETWORK, typed in the network name, username and password and there we go. Don't know if that would have worked for you.
