350 client adapter - does it work with SSID broadcast off at the AP?

    If I turn off SSID broadcast at the router (a Draytek 2900) the
    connection drops within seconds. If I turn it back on, the connection
    is re-established.

    I have seen various issues with this when initially configuring wifi
    networks (often it isn't possible to get things working unless SSID is
    initially enabled) but I haven't seen this behaviour on any client
    yet.

    I realise it isn't a particularly worthwhile security feature...

    The 350 clients works with 'hidden' SSID, tested on various APs from
    different brands under different O/S.
