Question about Computers & Internet
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.
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.
