    I have a MacBook Pro with 10.7.3 OS X. The problem is, up till yesterday my wifi network was going great, but since the morning, my system does not join my wifi network, which is hidden btw (when i turn on the wifi, it doesn't come up with any results, even though it recognizes the network), but when i change the settings, and the network is being broadcast, it recognizes it.
    the wifi router seems to be fine cause i can use the internet on my ipod touch, and my friends laptop.
    any solutions?

    Unhide it, then join it from the MBP so it adds it to your preferred network list, then hide it again. Your MBP should still be able to find it, since it's on the preferred list.

    It is in my preferred network list, and i did what you said. still doesn't show that the network is available when i switch on the wifi, and doesn't give any result when i manually put the ssid.

    Will it join the network when it's visible?

    Delete from preferred networks, restart, try initial process again.
