I've been having problems with a Linksys WRT54G wireless router. My laptop kept getting disconnected. Upgraded firmware, performed a hard reset according to Linksys techsupport but same problems. Then I was told by the Linksys tech to enable SSID broadcast because WinXP is designed to have SSID broadcast. I find this ridiculous as my neighbour will see my SSID and so will others. I know if someone really wants to hack into my router, disabling SSID doesn't help but at least it is somewhat protected if it is disabled. Anyhow, I did enable it and it works fine. So can someone confirm if WinXP is designed to do this?
