Jason,

Did you try setting "scan_ssid=1"?

This helps me find non-broadcast SSIDs.

Thanks,
Chris

Subject: WPA not associate with both SSID broadcast/non-broadcast

Hi,

I have a question.  I currently have two networks setup, geographically 
separated from each other (one is at home, the other is at work).  What
I 
want to do is share the same config file between the two, however I'm
having 
a problem doing that.

The SSID "work" is not being broadcast, and to get on this I have to
change 
the var ap_scan=2.  That works great.

The SSID "home" is being broadcast, and I need to set ap_scan=1, which
works, 
however it doesn't work with ap_scan=2.

Is there some kind of config option that I'm missing?  Is this even
possible 
to do?  I'd read that ap_scan=2 can only be used for one network block.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Jason
