    For some reason I can't turn off the SSID broadcast from my router. I can only connect when it's broadcasted. Anybody else having this problem with their Evo?

    I fixed this doing the following. I have a Netgar WNDR37AV dual band router. On the 2.4GHz frequency I switched to channel 6 and decreased the transfer rate from 300Mbps/sec to 54. This way I was able to leave the SSID broadcast off and still connect the Evo. So far so good.
