Do wireless routers need to broadcast SSID?Locked
I’ve found most of the time laptops wouldn’t connect to routers wirelessly whether it was done manually or automatically unless SSIDs were broadcast.
However I have experience that once the laptops have connected successfully I can have the broadcast turned off and the connection would automatically established as soon as the laptops are turned on.
Now I come across a laptop that won’t connect manually or automatically if I don’t have the SSID broadcast. This laptop has Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter.
