Hoping to buy an HD 10, but this review from a purchaser confuses me. I have no idea how to tell if SSID broadcast is enabled, if it’s something on my router, or if it’s something my internet provider does: Quote: Doesn’t matter what channel/frequency, the all new Fire HD 10 will only connect to my WiFi if I have SSID broadcast enabled. My previous fire (HD 8") does not have this problem with the hidden network. The 8 is connected and runs without issue (even during troubleshooting). The 10 being unable to connect to my Wifi network like ALL of my other devices is a surprising problem to immediately run into. It’s 2021 and the device I purchased is supposed to be an upgrade.
The worst part is that I am able to manually add a network. That means that this device is programmed to handle cloaked networks. You know, that normal thing that wireless devices can always do. But as soon as I hide the SSID (after successfully connecting the 10 to the Wifi) the Fire disconnects itself and says Out of Range. End Quote
