cannot see my SSID

Hi all,

I just recently upgraded to Windows 7, and I cannot see my SSID, I can see several others but not mine.
I works fine at the office but not at home. I have a DLink DIR-655.

Any Ideas on how I can solve this?

Hi and welcome to sevenforums

You d-link doesn't have broadcast turned on. having it off is more secure and you can log onto it if you know its name (the router). If you want to turn it on go to the routers web page (usually 192.168.1.1 or similar) and find the broadcast ssid box and check it
