    Is there a way to access these <hidden> wifi that Stumbler sees? They show up on Stumbler but not on the Settings. I mean, they show all the infos so is there a way to type in those infos manually to access them? They're not protected networks, btw.

    Yes, you do. Whatever is in the Wi-Fi address must be typed in.

    Wait, is there a way to find the SSID of a hidden network over Stumbler?

    If I am remembering correctly, last time I checked, there wasn't (for the iPot version of Stumbler).
