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?
Are you trying to win an argument or solve a problem?
