MSM 760 Hidden network problem (slow show up)

Hello

 

i 've a strange problem with 2 setups (seperated networks)

1 with teaming 2 controllers

1 with teamin 4 controllers

I used for some devices (laptops) a hidden network.

Only on some laptops this hidden network shows up and connect after 2 till 5 minutes.

before this time, this hidden network is not detected,

my firmware version 6.6.4.0

and 6.6.0.0 (downgraded back from 6.6.4.0)

 

anyone have seen this problem before ?

 

tnx

Re: MSM 760 Hidden network problem (slow show up)

Hiding an SSID is sometimes used as a security measure. It isn't. Hidden networks are known to be problematic, so using them is not advisable. This isn't MSM-specific, this is general wireless. Googling will provide a large number of resources where hidden SSIDs are discussed.
