[KB1204] Can I detect the network of the ClickShare Base Unit when I scan for wireless networks? (FAQ)

Short Description

That depends on the configuration of the Base Unit: you can select whether the SSID (Service Set Identifier) is broadcasted or not. If the SSID is broadcasted, the network will appear in your list of wireless networks. If the SSID is not broadcasted, it depends on your operating system and the software you use to scan for wireless networks or devices. At most, a network called “SSID not broadcasted” or “Hidden WLAN” (or something similar) will show up in the list of wireless networks. By default, the SSID is broadcasted.
