I would suggest checking the router settings.
In my knowledge many WLan routers support a hiding WLan option.
In such cases the WLan is not visible and you have to know the name of the WLan to searching it.
I think you know the name of the WLan therefore I would recommend entering the Wireless Network connection properties and then choosing the “Wireless Networks” tab.
There you can “Add” the preferred networks. You have to enter the WLan name and the encryption.
