Z3 supports access points that doesn't broadcast SSID but it will not work if you connect to the network while it's broadcasting and then stop broadcasting. In that case you need to tap and hold the network, forget it and then add it manually. I just tested it here on the 5GHz band but i can't find any issues with it.
But from what i understand you have done this?
What happens if you setup another SSID (or change the existing one) and try to add that?

OK so you fixed it for me, i had to make a new account cause the other one is from my computer desktop and i just click the Facebook to log in.
When i do log back in with the other account i will selct your post as answered.
yea i tried at least three times and still nothing but obviously would connect when broadcasting.
Then i did what you said and changed the SSID and it connected to the none broadcasting SSID right away.
Thank you so much for taking the time to personally problem solve this with your equipment...

Glad to hear that it works now
Could you please let me know what SSID you had when it was not working? You can send it to me in a PM if you don't want to post it here.
Have you used your Google account in another Android device previously and connected to this network on that device?

But you haven't used the account in any other Android device other than Z3? If you are unsure you can check under "Android" on www.google.com/dashboard
The reason i ask is that the Google backup feature contains WiFi-settings and i've seen a few cases where restoration of these settings from another device have caused issues.
The thread and posts will still be here You will just not be able to logon using the disabled account. This is because our guidelines only allows one account per person and different login methods will generate a new account.

Ok man you got it, down below is the answer.
Nvidia shield tablet i forgot about.
EDIT: And the Nvidia shield tablet connected to the non broadcasting network.
But why would it allow it to connect when it's broadcasting if is was messing with the settings, wouldn't the broadcasting still be effected vs the none broacasting? the settings are the same in both senerios.
Man your good, thank you for all your help.
Ok that's great kill thereal-l337g0g0...

Thanks for checking.
I haven't seen this exact issue before but i have seen a few cases where a restored backup of WiFi settings and networks from another device have caused issues. It's something that we are looking into to see if it's something we can solve from our end.
