Ac1200 pcie network card does not allow config for router that is not broadcasting ssid.  Tried manual config but no luck. Do I need to upgrade to another model or is this normal for tplink cards?  Asking since I just installed asus network card in another PC and it identifies the unbroadcasted network as hidden network and allows for manual config.

Well a network card will never detect a hidden network automatically.  What will happen after the 1st time the network is setup is it will be saved in your known network list, much like how a broadcasted network is remembered.  There should be no differences nor should the card not be able to connect to a hidden network.  One thing you can try broadcast the network connect and then hide the network again.
