Windows Wireless Manager Can't See Netowork

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?UkQ=?=, Sep 19, 2005.

  1. This is odd. At home, when I attempt to view my wireless network, it does
    not show up in the Wireless Network Connection window. But my neighbor's
    "linksys" unsecured network is visible. And at work I can view the "guest"
    wireless network.

    I am using a Linksys WRT54GS router. My laptop has an Intell PRO/Wireless
    2200bg inernal adapter. The router is configured to not broadcast the SSID
    and uses WPA-PSK encryption. I have also implemented MAC address filtering.

    To get around the problem I stopped the Wireless Zero Configuration service
    and used the Inter PROSet/Wireless software to configure the connection.
    This works fine.

    I would just like to understand why the Windows Wireless Manager application
    can see other wireless networks but not mine. Thanks in advance for any
    responses.

    Kind regards,
