    My work has hidden their SSID, thus the need for me to use the "Add Network" button at the bottom of the WiFi Settings menu; however, upon click the "Add Network" button, it just crashes and takes me back to the Settings screen. I click back on WiFi, it scans for the broadcasting SSIDs, and I click the "Add Network" button at the bottom again, and crash back to Settings Menu.

    I just got this phone from my work for my work. They don't know anything about Android products, and my Google-Fu hasn't been strong enough to figure out anyone else that has had this issue and how to fix it. Any clues?

    Thanks everyone!

    FYI: I do know that many devices do not work with hidden SSID's

    Simple test it: by connecting to a non-hidden SSID, if it connects thats why, if it does not it's a device or user issue with settings.

    You should also if you haven't take a look at your N7 manual and N7 Forum in case there is something specific

    I also assumed you have done a battery pull and/or shutdown between attempts to clear any corrupt data

    Hope that may help

    So I have been reading But my previous Droid X hadn't any problems, so I am still in hopeful mode.

    I was able to connect it to my home wireless, so that's a little discouraging.

    The manual that came with it was pretty lacking in most every aspect of the phone. I am still lurking for better corners to search for clues. I just figured throwing it up in the general area might catch some people that experienced similar operating behaviors.

    Yes sir! I'll always do some reboots, resets, clears, battery pulls, etc in between any oddity troubleshooting I am up against with my phone.
