Connection to encrypted wireless router

Hi:
I am trying to connect an ASUS Eee PC 901 with the Linux OS to my D-Link wireless router with WEP encryption enabled. The Eee sees the router no problem but when it tries to connect it constantly gets the "No DHCPOFFERS" status. I have verified the encryption key or password and it seems to correct. I have other PCs and printers connected to this router with that key. I downloaded some helpful hints from your website taking me through step by step in creating a connection using the Network ICON rather than just using the Wireless Network ICON to connect but I still got the same status. I tried connecting to the router using a static IP address (192.168.0.102) rather than DHCP and it seemed happy, the connection was "Enabled" but I couldn't connect to the internet with that configuration. I also wasn't very confident that I set that up cleanly. I was not completely sure what to do with things like the Gateway address, etc.
I also tried re-initializing the Linux OS using F9 on boot up but that didn't help either. I had read that fixed this same issue with some. Is there an incompatibility between the Eee and the D-Link router?
Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
Regards,
Jerry Richgels

Actually oftentimes this is because of a poor connection between the computer and the router. Since it does connect when using a static IP then you may be 1 step away. Put in the routers IP under gateway 192.168.0.1 then for DNS put in the ones that you can get from another computer.

Toget the DNS from another working computer. Windows XP
1. Click start then run then type in cmd then click ok.
2. Type in ipconfig/all then hit ENTER
3. You will see the DNS there.

I hope this has answered your question. If you have more questions please post a reply and i would be happy to assist. Thanks.

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Can you connect through a "wired" connection? Is your router connected to the Internet? If you're using wireless encryption, have you told your netbook what that encryption key is?

Netbook is wirelessly connected, but can't browse web sites


Shouldn't have to do much. I bought my daughteran ASUS Eee netbook with XP on it and it immediately connected to my wireless. Shouldn't be anything special to the settings unless you have specified these in your network settings on the router. If everything is set to default on the router, you should be able to connect with ease. I would enable WEP security on the router though.

Authentication failure


hia,

you need a network key for wireless connection to get authorized and allow your PC to connect.
make sure you have right key if security is enabled on wireless router.

now if you are entering right key then need to make sure which type of encryption router is using by going into router settings as an emaple WEP,WAP,TES etc...and make sure your computer wireless settings are same as this type.

let me know if you need more info in detail or step by step.

Thanks.

what version of linux are you using? If it's one that came preinstalled with the laptop I suggest looking at Ubuntu netbook edition, *very* capable OS, if that can't handle it nothing will.

Trying to connect asus netbook to wireless connection


Hello,

If you open your Network window from the start menu, at the top you will see "Add a wireless device". Follow the instructions and this should get your wireless connection with WEP key add. (When you select your router, you will need the WEP key at hand. You can get this by going to the web page of your routers IP address.) Good Luck.

Asus Eee PC wireless connection pending


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
