Is an Asus Eeepc 701 Linux OS & firfox browser compatible with a wireless N wifi router?


Yes, but the netbook only has a G card, so it won't be able to perate at the higher speed, and you'll have to make sure the router is in Mixed mode.

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.

Hi, I have bought a used asus 701 4g. when browsing it sometimes crashes and reverts to desktop. How do I find out which edition of firefox i have and howdo I upgrade it if necessary. I missed out on...


John,

You can find the version of Firefox you are using by going to Help > About Mozilla Firefox when inside the browser. Firefox usually prompts for upgrades, but on limited or old versions of Linux such as that on the Eee PC 701 (Xandros, to be specific), that doesn't always work. Check out the Add/Remove Software utility under Settings for updates.

Eeepc 701 won't restart after reinstalling OS. reinstalled original oS software, dis an apt-get update, updates continued for quite a time, then had to reboot. But since then, nothing, eeepc will not even...


you probably have the solid state hard drive (4gb)... its not big enough to hold all the updates .. unfortunately the operating system comes with "auto update" turned on ... it will download updates until the drive is full then will crash .. one way to resolve this is to kill the internet so it cant log on ... you can disconnect or turn off your wifi or if you are fast enough you can use Fn F2 (turns off wifi) .. just watch the wifi light to make sure its off at boot .. there is a lag in response so its a bit tricky ...now once booted you can turn off "auto update" ...then you can turn your wifi or internet back on .. manually update only things you know you have room for .. if your 701 has a CF card slot (like my eeepc 900a . then that can be used as additional hard drive space ... during installation i made that the boot drive (advanced) (of course you cant remove it after that).. the new eeebuntu4 beta is a wonderful upgrade for the system .. but i could only get it working by using thhe CF drive as above.. if you havent already done so you can make a bootable USB jump drive .. you can run Ubuntu off that as well as install from that ...change the boot order in cmos ..to boot first from the Jump dirve ...

Check if your XP installer has service pack 2. If not download and install service pack 2 on support.microsoft.com. Service pack 2 automatically comes with USB 2.0.

EeePC 701 that no longer detects wireless access points


some eeepcs have an auto-down load facility that upgrades certain items(firefox for example) andother items ,i found once i had upgraded these items the wi-fi wouldnt enable as efficiently as before--i can't point you to specific code but if you re-install the OS(Linux Xandros) from base and switch off the updates,by going to "settings" then choose "installing/removing software" then choose "preferences" you can partially stop these auto-downloads and from a new base configuration install you might find your wi-fi works again.
press F9 whilst booting to get to the install OS screen ,you will have three choices whichever you choose (highlight) then press "E" then press "B" and this is how you re-install

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.

I've forgotten my password for Asus Eee PC 4g


One of the advantage of any Linux OS is its tough security. Im afraid you have to reprogram you machine so that you can use it,  . and then maybe later you run a File Recovery software so that you can latter on recover your important files.

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.
