Just FYI, the X seems to have an issue with hidden SSIDs. With my LinkSys WRT610N I had to turn on SSID broadcast. Prior to enabling broadcast, I had set up the wifi network profile (WPA2 security) but the X failed to detect it; shutting off SSID broadcast after it joins the network causes the Droid to drop connection. I found a Hidden SSID enabler but it had no effect.
All-in-all a minor annoyance (the hidden SSID is a nice-to-have, but not much protection - especially compared to WPA2), but I can live with it until a fix comes about. It seems like hidden SSIDs are a bit hit and miss with Android phones. I may play with it a bit more later.
I was able to get the x connected to my home network, but if i turn the wifi radio off then back on it will not automatically reconnect to the network. I have to go back into wifi settings and then it will reconnect. Any thoughts?
I do think there is some issue with hidden SSID and Android. Had a problem with Android 2.2 Samsung Galaxy S and with the Asus Nexus 7. Both the devices could not locate my Belkin N150 WiFi router. When I manually entered the SSID and the password, both the devices said the network 'out of range'. But there was no problem with my Lenovo desktop, Vaio laptop and 2 Nokia phones. I broadcast my SSID a voila' the android devices could locate WiFi network and connect.
And I have the same problem. My Samsung Galaxy S can connect to our hidden network until yesterday. I don't know what happen. tried it a lot of times in my sony vaio laptop and it worked. I dont know what the hell is the problem. Can anyone answer this?
