I have recently bought a Sony W995a handset. I cant seem to get it to detect my wifi network, my 2 laptops work on my wifi network fine. I am running WPA-Personal/AES security and the broadcast SSID is hidden. This is what I have tried so far:-

Broadcast the SSID of my network, the phone still doesnt detect my network, though it will pick other wifi networks in the area.

Tried to manually enter in the SSID, IP address, default gateway, and the DNS address, using the advanced setting on the phone, still no luck.

Thanks in advance.
