is my Asus Eeepc 701 with Linux OS and Firefox Browser compatible with a wireless N Wifi router?


If you're thinking of buying a N router, it should also say somewhere 'a/b/g/n'. The different letters are different variants of wifi and the router page will show which is supported (if it is an N router, it will most certainly support the others). The eeepc 701 can only use wifi of a/b/g, meaning that, although it can use the lower variants supported by the N router, the actual N variant that you're paying for is redundant. With this in mind, I recommend that (unless you have another computer with N capabilities) you save your money and buy a router without N, it is probably cheaper.

just trying to upgrade my asus eeepc 701 sd to take a wireless broad band heuwai modem


Ive tried this configuration many times if you ask me people connected to huwaei post thes things stating certain modems are configurable under linux,in a decent way but in fact they just want you to buy a modem which will never configure on a day to day basis properly.
i suspect this is a fraud to get you to pay£20--£49.99 for their dongles.
The basic problem is the auto wizard under linux does not recognise their modems--proceed at your peril!

no wireless connection


I am assuming you're referring to the Asus Eee PC 701SD... if so, try the following:1. Check the hotspot to see what kind of IP address it is using [are they manually configured, or is there a DHCP server that assigns IP addresses] 2. Check your 701 and make sure its network connectivity conforms with the settings on the hotspot

Unable to connect EEEPC 701 to BT HOME HUB 2


sometimes the best thing to do is start over.

reset any hubs, routers, switchers, etc.
then (just fro now) remove any firewalls,
or software that may get in the way.
You want to start with a bare minimum configuration and build from there.

eeepc works well with windows networks, the ethernet connection should just work, without additional software.

does eepc connect to other networks?
can other laptops connect to your network?
check all settings: ip address, dhcp or static, passwords, etc.

Try a "wired" ethernet connection, then try the wireless connection. if all else fails, use F9 (or DVD disk to reset/reload the system. i.e. start over.

Can a WEbcam be installed


Most 701 models came with a web cam built in.
You can install an external one easily.. just plug it in to the usb port.

Previous poster is wrong... why would you need a Cd drive ?
You could either download the drivers from the webcam maker's website, or simply copy the file from the CD to a SD card with another computer. If you have a home network setup, you could simply copy the files via network file sharing.

If you have the linux version of the EeePC 701, then make sure you buy a compatible webcam that has drivers in linux.
