    Hello
    I’va troubles connecting my (Raspberry Pi-) MAX2PLAY to my hidden Wifi-SSID? The hidden Wifi is not listed (e.g. as Unknown Network etc.) if I start a Wifi scan. (By the way; connecting to a normal, visible Wifi is working great!)

    How should I connect to a hidden Wifi it the right way?

    Best regards,
    Roman.

    Hi Roman,
    If your router has a WPS feature, you can use this to connect your Pi. We have made small HowTo on the subject: https://www.max2play.com/en/2016/01/raspberry-pi-automatic-wlanwifi-configuration-with-max2play-and-wps/

    Hi Heiner
    Thanks. But it seems I have no WPS feature, since my router is actually no really a router but a Wifi-to-Wifi bridge.
    Is there another way to get MAX2PLAY connected to a hidden WLAN?
    Regards.

    PS: Would you like to proceed in German language? 😉

    English is our preferred language in the forums, because the whole community can benefit from the exchanges 😉
    Have you tried entering the Network SSID and the password under the WiFi/LAN menu? If your hidden WiFi bridge is accessible, you should be able to directly log in this way.

    Same problem here, can only connect to my wireless when SSID is not hidden. This on a Pi3 with m2p version 2.39. Any idea how to solve this?

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Hi mich,
    What’s your error message when you enter the SSID and password manually?
