There's network

Using inSSider I see the eduroam network. Yet Wi-Fi doesn't detect it yet. Why could it be?

How do you know WiFi doesn't detect it? – Daniel Jul 30 '12 at 21:07
the Wi-Fi window reads no network selected (and also from Join other network...). – simpatico Jul 30 '12 at 21:17

It may be that the network doesn't broadcast it's SSID (tools like inSSider can pick up the name other ways). Try clicking Join Other Network and entering the details manually, see if that works.

Didn't work either. It's a broadcasting network. Other macbooks find it. – simpatico Jul 30 '12 at 21:01
