When trying to set up the wireless connection on this PC it shows the wireless networks around. When you ty to log into one with the correct password (even from only inches away) it sticks at "PENDING" for ever.. There is an aditional box not shown in the instruction book on the "ENCRYPTION INFORMATION box which is called "KEY INDEX". Does this play a part?
Did you make sure that when you go to the control panel on the computer that your settings arnt set so that wireless internet connection is turned off! This happened to me once! I could see the connections, but I couldnt connect to them!

Right click the wireless icon in the lower right hand corner by your clock and click view available wireless networks. Then select configure advanced settings. Click on the wireless networks tab.
In the lower part of the screen select your wireless network and remove it. Reboot the laptop
Once back on, view available wireless networks again, double click yours and join it again. It may ask you for your password so make sure you have that handy.
I've experienced the same problem with my ASUS netbook. Uninstall the wireless hard - remove hardware in control panel, reboot the machine and allow it to auto find the adapter again. This should correct it. If there are still problems verify that you have the most current driver for the wireless adapter, either from Asus, or the wireless adapter chipset manufacturer (i.e. Intel, broadcomm, etc.)
I had a similar problem. Hit "Fn"+"F2" to cycle the wireless off then on again. Allow about 30-60 seconds to get IP and DNS info from the access point. Then, using the network adaptor icon in the utility bar (on the bottom right), right click, select "all network connections". Click each network adaptor and from the "Connection Tab" Disconnect each adaptor. Then restart the wireless adaptor with the "Connect" from the "Connection Tab". I'm assuming that there are no funny settings in the Properties which are preconfiguring the adaptor for a previous connection. If so remove any present values. Leave the connection set as DHCP as this is teh most common way that adaptors will get their settings from teh access point your attempting to connect to. Cheers.
You need to know if your home network requires a password or paraphrase to allow you to connect. Also, you might have to check your settings on your router, they have to match the settings of your laptop wireless adaptor. You can try these solutions and if no luck post with more information
You may be choosing the wrong encryption method. For instance your entering your wireless key (WEP) and you have it set on (PSA, WPA). Make sure those settings match. Also you may have an IP conflict which is resolved by setting up a static ip. If the encryption methods match and you need help with a static IP let me know
I found that sometimes I have to "disable" the wireless service, and then "re-enable" wireless before it will show available wireless connections.
After that, just use your normal connection settings - passwords, security type, etc.
As well, at times, if I use the "Wireless Connections" Icon in the "Internet" page to log in, I have to re-type the password in. If I use the "Network Connections" icon in the toolbar at bottom, it seems to remember my password and logs in faster.
If you would like to use wireless inernet, you have to have an access point nearby and that you know the authentication like the WEP or the WPA key, and you can get that from the network admin. click start > connect to > wireless network connection , then click on View wireless networks. click on the network you want to connect to, then click on connect. You should be able to connect after entering the passkey, or it automatically connects if the access point is unsecured.
