My router is set as WPA - TKIP with encrypted password.
With SSID transmitting, I setup WiFi connection on my IPad 2, selecting the modem name and providing the password. The connection is solid.
If I then turn off SSID transmitting on the router, the WiFi connection on the IPad 2 is broken even though the router name still appears.
I've tried telling the IPad 2 to "forget" the connection and entering the router name (Case specific) correctly along with the connection type and password. IPad 2 reports it can't find the router?
Turning the SSID back on establishes the connection.
