Dumb question probably, but when I'm at home on my OWN wifi network, which is named "Bob" (for example) and does not have hidden SSID but does have WPA security, my laptop just signs on immediately when I wake it up from sleep. At my parent's house, it sits there for 15-20 seconds with a blank-bars wifi icon and then finds his network (named "John" for example), signs on (WPA again) and then for some reason displays the name "John" scrolling right to left next to my wifi icon in the top menu bar. This scrolls for a few seconds then goes away. Everything works. Just wondering why some networks scroll their names and my home one doesn't.
