    Cool My Wireless Network is not listed [hidden network]

    My home wireless network is listed as hidden network and every time I log in, I have to connect it manually. It is not listed in wireless connection list. I can only connect it with selecting "Connect to Hidden Wireless Network" option. I didn't have any problems with 12.04.

    I'll be so happy if someone can help me.
    Thanks in advance.

    Here's more details:

    My laptop model is : Dell Inspiron n5110

    OS: 12.10 - 64 bit

    You are not alone. After the fresh install of Ubuntu 12.10, I face the same problem.

    Re: My Wireless Network is not listed [hidden network]

    Not exactly germane to your problem but I stopped hiding my network SSID. I read quite a bit of seemingly credible info that a hidden network was actually less secure than a visible SSID with a strong passphrase. If you haven't done so, you might try completely deleting the wireless account then recreate it. I've had that fix 'odd' problems before.
