But I'd much rather see a simple setup for the 80% use case followed by another section with all the grimy details that most people won't need.  That's why I did this: http://www.wonkity.com/~wblock/docs/html/wireless.html

I'll read through that and see if it helps me at all. 

I found this — "'Hidden' SSIDs are not really hidden. They make network setup more difficult and provide no real security benefits." — interesting. I assume you could figure them out from wardriving?
