I have a wireless router with the ssid turned off. Never an issue with my windows computers phones etc. I installed Peppermint 4 on my daughters Dell D620 Latitude. I have to manually connect to the router each time she boots up. Once connected the computer and the wireless work flawless. All the information for the connection stays, but I have to keep opening up network manager and tell it to connect to the hidden network.

Any ideas/suggestions would be most welcome.

I own a Dell Latitude D620 (currently dedicated to DJ'ing on plug.dj 27/7) and a ATG D630 (my road warrior).

I'm running Peppermint Four Respin on both, and WiFi is rock-solid - no auto-connect probs, disconnects, etc.

That said, here's my suggestion: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=5916

To be upfront, I'm a NM hater_from_wayback, and switching to WiCD isn't for the faint_of_heart, but ultimately it's the best solution, IMO.

* Try PCNetSpec's suggestion first... ;)

I tried PCNetSpec's link and that did not work.

The link from VINDsl worked like a charm.

A big thanks to both of you to take the time to post. I really appreciate your time.

Great news, happy to hear Wicd fixed the issue :)

If you now consider this solved, can you please edit the FIRST posting in this topic and change:

Subject: Hidden wireless router not being seen on bootup. (SOLVED)

Thanks in advance :)
