Windows 7 Build 7100x32
cannot connect to hidden network??

Just purchased a new Lenovo G550 w/ Windows 7 Ult 32 bit, and while I can find my hidden network, i cannot connect to it. Only when I make it unsecured can i connect. I am noticing that this may be a bug within Windows 7? I could not find this when i searched the forum...

I really can't answer your question, because I'm very new to any kind of network, but by the term "hidden", I get the impression that means encrypted as might be used in WIFI. I don't know which firewall that you use, but I know that in Outpost's LAN settings, there is individual options to enable NAT Zone and IPv6, which I think are required...just a thought.
