Hi there,

I am able to connect to my hidden network, but the time it takes for it to happen varies wildly.

Just now, I had to wait for 5 minutes (staring at the desktop wallpaper) before the prompt to enter the password to the keyring popped up.

I am wondering whether this occurs because my wireless card is "wasting" time discovering every non-hidden network in my neighborhood.

Is there a solution to speed this up? Even if there is not, it would be great to know what it is happening that impedes the connection to occur right away (like e.g. in Windows XP).

Thanks in advance.
