Connect to a none broadcasting network?

I can't connect to my network, i have broadcasting off.

Re: Connect to a none broadcasting network?

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?

Re: Connect to a none broadcasting network?

Are you referring to wifi or carrier network?

Do you mean your home WiFi is set not to broadcast its SSID?

Hi l337g0g0,

 

Welcome to the community! Since you're new please be sure that you have checked out our Discussion guidelines.

 

To add a hidden network, simply do the following.

 

Menu > Wifi > Press + button/Add > Add details of the hidden network.

 

This should allow the connection.

 

I hope this helps.

Re: Connect to a none broadcasting network?

What did i do wrong?

And i know how to add the network SSID, it just says after i add the SSID that it's not in range.

I did some searching and people are saying that the Phone won't connect to the SSID unles sit's broadcasting.

So do i have to extra settings for this to work or is it not possible...

If your network is not broadcasting the phone has nothing to detect..Do a hard reset on your router and the phone will find it

Re: Connect to a none broadcasting network?

WOW am i really confusing the question?

I don't like to broadcast my SSID.
All my gear i can maunally add the SSID and the device will add it and connect to the SSID/router.

The Sony Experia Z3 when i have the SSID router not broadcasting and i add the SSID to the Sony experia Z3 it adds the SSID but then never connects and says it's out of range.
When i turn on broadcasting the phone then connects to the SSID/router.

Like i said i was searching the internmet for thise problem and others have it also with this phone then when the SSID/router is not broacasting THIS phone the Sony experia Z3 will NOT connect to a none broacasting SSID/router.

SO...

My question is to the Sony Experira Z3 forums.

is there a setting/worka around to resolve this issue?
I want to have my Sony Experia Z3 connect to a none broadcasting SSID/router.

Thank you...

Tap add network +icon.tap network name.enter required ssid.Tap security drop down.Tap the required security eg WPA etc tap the password and enter password.tap done then tap save
Try setting your router to AES/TKIP if above doesn't work
