    Hi,

    I can connect to my wireless when I unhide my network, but when I hide it again the network breaks.

    I don't want to broadcast my network, how can I connect without having to broadcast my network.

    Linux variants aren't really happy with hidden networks.
    broadcast the SSID / don't broadcast it; any wireless devices I have seen can still find and 'see' any wireless network.

    not broadcasting it isn't any more secure or doing you any favors, good network security is better at keeping unwanted clients out.
