Windows 7: Wireless Hidden Files\Folders

Wireless Hidden Files\Folders

System:Windows 7 Professional
Processor: Intel® Core™ i3-3200 CPU @3.30Hz 3.30GHz
RAM: 4.00 GB
Type: 64-Bit Operating System
Issues using my wireless router to use the Internet;
The internet Icon in lower right of the task bar, shows small caution, symbol can’t use internet. Reboot the Server for internet, the symbol is clear. Later the caution symbol reappears. This goes on and on for a couple of days. Now I’m getting a star like symbol on the Internet Icon.
Reboot the system, still show star symbol on the icon. Trying to use the Wireless Network Connection, buy clicking on the icon, I get a message saying, “The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of this Network”. Further use of the Wireless Network Connection, gets a message saying, “Windows cannot connect to the hidden network”. Troubleshooting the problem, I get the message “make sure the computer is close to the wireless hookup, the computer is 12” from the main hookup.
Where can I find this hidden Network, if possible?

Is your SSID hidden on the router?

If so turn it off. It makes your network unsecured. I have also seen this in cases where the router was failing. You could try resetting the router to factory defaults with the button they have on most routers to do so. Then log in and reset up the router. See if the issue persists.
