    Wireless connects after 5-10 minutes

    Hi all!

    My wireless connection always worked. When I log in, I already have internet access.
    I went on holiday and connected to several other networks.
    Now the laptop will not connect anymore. Sometimes after 5-10 minutes.
    When I forse to connect ("Connect to hidden wireless network), the laptop connects after several seconds. But not automatically.

    My wireless modem uses WPA2, MAC filtering and has a hidden access point.
    I use Ubuntu 10.4 on a HP Probook laptop. In "Network connections", under "Wireless", the "Connect Automaticly" and "Available to all users" are selected. When connected, the signal strenght is very good.

    What can I do to solve the looooooong connection time?

    Re: Wireless connects after 5-10 minutes

    I have some news:
    If the wireless network is NOT hidden (hidden SID), the laptop connects very fast.

    If the wireless network is hidden, the laptop connects only after 10 minutes.

    Does anyone has an idea?
