Some users cannot "see" broadcast Public Access SSID but can all others...

Unanswered Question
Feb 10th, 2009

I've had 4 users in the last 3 days who've reported not being able to see our broadcast "public access" wifi SSID. Numerous users (even in same area, attached to same AP) can see it - however some cannot. The do see all of the other broadcast SSIDs, just not the public. The public is open and broadcast with security enabled. Does anyone know if this is a client issue - possible with a recent AV or MS security update? ("protecting" clients from unsecured networks by not displaying them?)

I have this problem too.

If you notice that at a given time some users can and other can't see the ssid, it almost points to the client side. Compare drivers from the two clients and see if the driver versions are the same or old.
