    Cannot connect to the net when the SSID is not transmitted


      My Acer  AS3810TZ – 413G32N laptop with a Intel WiFi 1000BGN wifi card (having the latest drivers & running on Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit) cannot connect to the net thru a Linksys WRT54G WiFi router when the SSID is not transmitted but when the SSID is transmitted it connects. I also use MAC filters. Another laptop in my house has no problem for the last two years (running Vista home basic) in connecting to the same router when SSID is hidden. I read elsewhere on this forum that enabling WMM (WiFi QOS) might solve the problem I tried that but no luck. Anyone facing the same problem. Any suggestions, advise is welcome. Incidentally this is a out of the box problem right from the day I bought this machine.
