I can not find anywhere in the WiFi configuration where I can enter a specific SID? This access point is not mine to control, so I can't just make it broadcast.

Oh dear. I'll add this to the failed test case list.

Indeed, I'm not sure what I entered for my search that this was not returned (joys of google, you know what to search for once you found it ;-)

lyonrouge: Oh dear. I'll add this to the failed test case list.


Oh dear. Looks to me you didn't do your research properly before purchasing the phone. The limitations of this new phone OS have been well reviewed and published for some time.

I made my phone purchase after diligent research, knowing full well I would have to do without significant features I've had on other phones. MS have a large team committed to the development of this OS and I'm absolutely convinced in time it will be very competitive. Clearly this phone is not for you now plus you have plenty of competent choices to fall back on. Put your WP7 away in your bottom draw for a few months and try later....

I'm performing comparison testing. Note: I'm doing first run now, as each O/S provide service packs, I'll re-run the tests.

The explanation for this (as I heard it) is that this is a "consumer device" and hidden SSIDs are more of a corporate thing...

Now, I'd not go there, as I use a visible SSID a home, but many people hide their SSID in a futile attempt to increase protection, making it now a "corporate thing".

Explanation sounds to me like developers who were looking for an excuse, a Business Analyst when defining requirements should not make such an assumption.,
