This question already has an answer here:

I'm trying out the developer preview for Touch, and unfortunately I don't have public WiFi I can connect to. Is there a way to add hidden networks? I can't find any kind of settings page or anything.


There may be a way to do this from the command line. I found that /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ stores a list of wifi connections that have been connected to. There may be a way to manually enter your hidden network here, though I haven't found anything yet.

Also, someone on IRC mentioned that the phablet-network-setup script can be used to copy network settings from your desktop to the "phablet." Unfortunately I didn't get either of these to fully work, so if someone has had better luck please feel free to post the answer here. Hopefully that helps.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

It's a known issue of the current preview. There is no way for it right now but it might change soon.
