Title: METHOD FOR CONNECTING TO HIDDEN AP, AND TERMINAL DEVICE
Abstract:
The present invention relates to the technical field of communications. Disclosed in an embodiment of the present invention are a method for connecting to a hidden AP, and a terminal device. The method comprises: acquiring a service set identifier (SSID) of a hidden AP to which a user wants to connect; using a first character encoding scheme to encode the SSID; broadcasting a first scanning request comprising the encoded SSID to find the hidden AP; and if the hidden AP is not found, using a second character encoding scheme to re-encode the SSID, and broadcasting a second scanning request comprising the re-encoded SSID. By implementing the embodiment of the present invention, scanning of a hidden AP can be performed by switching between different character encoding schemes, thereby preventing a problem in which a hidden AP is unable to be found due to inconsistent character encoding schemes, and increasing a successful rate of scanning connection.
