Which software versions are you using on these APs? I would be surprised
if Cisco 1100 cannot broadcast the SSID; the SSID may have to be
selected for "Guest use" to make it show up in the beacons, though.

At least the latest IOS versions of Cisco AP software have quite
extensive debugging facilities. One possible debugging path would be to
enable 802.11 debugging ('debug dot11' options) and try to find out
whether the station is trying to associate, and if yes, why it is
