Hi. My home wifi is set up as a hidden network. I didn't set it up so don't know the ins and outs of this... All I know is that when I want to add a new pc, I need to add the ip address to the router software. Then on the new pc, I manually type in the network name (because it doesn't appear in the "available networks" list on the pc) and everything usually works fine. But I can't figure out how to set this up for my new iPhone. Where is the ip address of my iPhone listed? Or how else do I connect to this hidden network? Any thoughts?

imac, Mac OS X (10.5.1)

    I'm new with the iPhone to but what I did notice is when I went to settings > WiFi and clicked on it, it went to NETGEAR not choose. I think mine has a hard time finding NETGEAR or something because it only appears sometimes. When you click on this Network though it will tell you the IP Address.

    EDIT: I clicked on the WiFi tab so it went to choose Network, then clicked the sleep button or whatever at the top and left it for 2 or 3 mins and turned it back on and it was connected to NETGEAR and when you click the arrow it tells you all the Networks info.

    Can anyone fix my Passcode problem with Remote app in the discussion a couple down thanks.

    I find the best way is to unhide your network, connect your computers and other wireless devices, and then rehide it.

    My Wi-Fi SSID (network name) is also hidden. On my iPhone (just got it last week) I was able to add the name by going to Settings | Wi-Fi | Other and type in the name of the network. Remember that the name must match exactly.
