Granted that you probably also have other problems, but are you making
things more difficult for yourself by setting your access point to not
broadcast its SSID?  

Hiding it doesn't make a network more secure, at all.  But hiding it
does make it a bit more difficult for you to associate with the right
access point.

It's like taking all the labels off your tinned food.  You can still get
into each tin, but you've got to sample them all to find the right one.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
