    Greetings,

    I am trying to connect a WinXP laptop to a WAP which has the SSID broadcast disabled. I am using ZeroCfgSvc to configure the wireless device. I manually entered the SSID, and it is displayed under the available wireless networks. However, when I try to connect to the network, the dialog windows says "waiting for network..." for a couple of minutes, then it gives up. Any advice on how to make this work?

    Thanks,
    -D
