    I ran across your problems because I have been researching ASUS EEE Netbook problems lately. Did both of you get your problem solved? And did you order the Linux operating system.

Well here is the bad news. There is no fix to the wireless problem. It works on some machines when they are shipped but on others. YOU ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING's a bug in the Xandros software. It will either work immediately when you get it, or it won't and you will drive yourself crazy trying to figure it out. Send the machine back and demand your money or a replacement. From other posts the distributors of ASUS EEE know of the problem and will replace or refund but don't wait to long. Sorry, but I am only the messenger...good luck.

Hi Brian,
I assumed you were looking for the EEE PC 701 (XP) Manual and not the Linux version..
If so, you can get the manual from here: (Click on the "Free User" download option)
