    I am unable to locate my OWN Wireless Network Name at [View Available
    Wireless Networks].
    However, it is showing at:
    (1) [Wireless Network Connection PROPERTIES ----Preferred Networks…]
    (2) [Wireless Network Connection STATUS] as Connected & Excellent
    Signal strength.
    Any recommendations/suggestions as how to fix this problem are much


    PS: OS & Adapter Info:
    - MS WindowsXP Professional TC Version 2002 Service Pack 2.
    -Linksys Wireless-G USB Network Adapter (using the Windows XP Wireless
    Zero Configuration Utility) to connect to the Internet via a Wireless
    Access Point.

    Just to make it clear, do you have the latest, greatest driver for the
    Linksys USB?

    Yes. " WUSB54Gv4". It is the same as the driver for download at the
    Manufacturer's Website.
    I can connect to the Internet as soon as I log on to WinXP Pro. But I just
    can't see my SSID inside the [View Available Wireless Networks in the range]

    No. I can see my AP's SSID with my Notebook (with a Wireless PC card
    Is it possible to set the AP not to broadcast it's SSID? If it is the
    case, could you please advise how to make a correction?
