I have got a problem while connecting my nexus 7 to a WiFi network with a hidden SSID on my linksys G router at home. When I add it manually and enable SSID broadcast, it joins the network right away. Then go to disable broadcast, it will lost the connection and be out of range. but I can connect to the router fine using my Droid INc. How can I make nexus 7 WiFi to connect to non- broadcasted SSID?
* You might mess up a space or capitalized letter in SSID. Change the hidden SSID to something easy like 123456 for testing.
* Make sure the router don't have enabled MAC filtering. Manually add your SSID (encryption type and password) on your tablet. Then go to WiFi settings, Manage Networks and tap on the SSID to force it to connect.
* The hidden SSID is a minor annoyance with Android devices, especially with WPA2. If the tablet is still failed to detect, set your router to 802.11 B & G mode, not N mode.
