I install Arch Linux 8.1. I'm trying to connect to the network via Wi-fi via the iwd package according to the manual, the problem is that my network is hidden and is not detected in the list by station wlan1 get-networks. Even if you connect directly with the correct SSID and key, the network is still not located. How can I find a hidden network through iwd, or through another tool?

1 Answer 1


Searching iwd source code it appears there is a command for connecting to a hidden network as found in this commit.

Please try using station <device> connect-hidden <ssid> Im not sure this will work but it's worth a shot. This should ask you for the passphrase if not try iwctl --passphrase <passphrase> station <device> connect-hidden <ssid>

  • iwctl help | grep connect-hidden
