Topic: Can't connect FBSD v6.3 wireless to AP via WPA with SSID "hidden"
Has anyone experienced the following....
I have a laptop running FBSD v6.3 with an Atheros 5212 onboard wireless nic.
I can connect to my wireless LAN (Netgear WG602v2 Access Point) with no problems with WPA-enabled and SSID "broadcast".
However, when I disable SSID broadcast on the AP (WPA is still used), and try connecting that way it won't let me on the network. The same applies if I were to use WEP (which I don't, but just wanted to test it).
Even if I add the BSSID parameter for the access point in my /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf file, it still won't connect.
Any ideas to this??? Is this a bug or is there a special parameter that I'm missing that I need to supply in order to connect to a hidden SSID??
