For a while I've been running a wireless network between my iMac and daughter's iBook. My iMac800 (OS10.2.8) is connected by ethernet to a Netgear DG834G ADSL modem/router; the Ibook (OS10.3.9) connects wirelessly from an airport card. For security measures I'm using WPA-PSK and SSID hiding.

I've just added a new IMac Core Duo2 17" (OS10.4.8) to the network. Life is fine if I disable SSID hiding but if I hide the SSID the Intel Mac can't find the network.

Is this an Intel Mac problem, an issue with 10.4.8 or something else? I'm hoping that my network is still adequately secure with WPA encryption, but having to broadcast the SSID seems a step backwards for the newest Mac!!

Any help or suggestions pse?

Happy New Year to all,
Mike
