Cisco Aironet 1240AG is not broadcasting SSID for MAC os (MACbook, iPhone...)

Hello, I have a "standart" settings of Cisco Aironet 1240AG with ENABLED broadcasting SSID, encryption is WPA2 (AES). I can see the wifi network (ssid) with windows system but with MAC OS 10.5 and MAC OS 10.7 also with iPhone the wifi is acting like hidden. But If I manually enter the wifi ssid and set the proper encryption the connection work normally. Also I have a separete windows partition on one MACbook and this windows 7 have no problem to see the SSID of my network. But If i Boot to the MAC OS the WIFI is "hidden" until the manually connection. (same problem on iphone, manuall connect with manually entered SSID is working well).

Thanks for any advice.

Regards

1.  What is the IOS of the WAP?

2.  Please post the config.

3.  What happens if you try OPEN authentication?

4.  Have you tried other clients?

I have seen similar problems with broadcasting SSID on autonomous APs.

Like Leo said, make sure you have:

dot11 ssid wifinetwork

   authentication open
