Tagged: Hidden Wifi WLAN SSID

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?

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/3. February 2016 at 14:27 #18339
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?
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.29. May 2017 at 16:31 #29101
No error message – it just does not connect and shows the status as
“Status: WiFi USB adapter status is active. WiFi connection status is active (IP: NO IP! No connection!)”. It works with the same setup if I just reconfigure the router to expose the SSID.
Did you test WiFi setup with hidden SSID?
