Hidden Wifi results in no connection?
I'm updated to the latest 188.8.131.528 but I was having problems on the prior build as well. My router is a Dlink DIR601 N router with WPA2 encryption and dual G/N setup. Now the issue is my playbook will connect to the network fine and have connection for 3-5 seconds before it becomes inresponsive. Its the same problem with my 9930 and both pick up the network right away. I have several laptops on the same router without problems so it might just be a setting that is messing up the blackberry devices. I've tried resetting the router without a result and this same router was working fine prior with the SSID broadcasting.
Maybe but you would think that it would have had problems before that because it was working fine before. Not really looking to buy a new router for two devices that don't work over wifi when I have a bunch of devices that can connect without a problem.
I'll give that a try but does that also mean I will need to assign every other device that connects to my network an IP or will I still be able to leave them to automatically assign?

If you just add an ip reservation in the router you shouldn't have to do anything to the other devices. You would only have to manually assign every device if you turned off dhcp.

SSID is not supposed to be hidden --- it is not a security solution. Hiding SSID is actual violating 802.11 specification --- laptops and tablets can refuse to connect to your network because your wifi network is violating the wifi spec.
