Scanning problem for hidden SSIDs

Hi Holger, Dan,

I am using the same code as you mentioned.

My problem is,

Host driver is not getting any AP details when it sends scan command. If i 
check the log of firmware by sending HostCmd_CMD_802_11_GET_LOG command to 
firmware, it shows no rx frames received and tx frames count is not zero . 
but i could see the probe responses from the APs. Please give me some idea 
about this problem.

Thanks & Regards,
