Preconfigured wifi with hidden ssid does not work

Hello everybody,

yesterday I tried to update my OMG-devices and ran into a problem. I build the binary by myself and set ESPWifiManualSetup=true and defined also wifi_ssid and wifi_password. Everything works as expected. But is the given ssid hidden, the device starts with a message “[WIFI] no matching wifi found!”.

If I configure the hidden wifi by WifiManager, it connects to the network. I tried several times and I don’t understand this behaviour. Does WifiManager store the properties in a different way?


Yes, this is not the same connection mechanism.
Should I understand that ESPWifiManualSetup=true does not work with hidden SSID ?

yes, ESPWifiManualSetup=true does not work with hidden SSID.
