My HP Deskjet 6500 worked perfectly via my wireless network until I turned off my SSID Broadcast. Now the printer SAYS it is connected to the wireless network, but I cannot print to it. The printer does not even show up as being on the network.
There MUST be a way to configure it to connect to a wireless network witout SSID Broadcast turned on, since nobody who cares about their wireless security would leave their SSID Broadcast on all the time, right?

First, disabling the SSID broadcast is not a security measure. Freeware from the Internet can still read it. Plus, as you have determined, your printer will not like it at all.
