SSID not broadcast? Win 7 OS.


  • Hi all,
    I'm in the UK and have just got an EU early access Alien router + 1 mesh.
    Have got it up and running fine with a mix of iPhones/Sky Q/TV streaming/Win10 OS.

    I have an issue connecting to a Dell Precision M6800 Win 7 OS (Intel PROSet Wifi chipset). Can't see the SSID for some unknown reason?
    Any ideas? The win 7 OS shell network pop up doesn't show the SSID but if i run the Intel PROSet driver it can see the unnamed SSID!

  • I was using latest driver on the Dell support page.
    Went direct to Intel drivers downloaded 18.33.17.1, installed, SSID now visible and connected all ok!

    Thanks @Derek-Saville
