Ok so my hubby got me an asus eee pc 900 for christmans and he just had to play with it beforehand and he said it works great and connects to wifi hotspats perfectly but at home it connects but won't bring up any webpages. i do know a little about computers and i can't figure out whats wrong. the signal strength is 100% or around there. i don't have access to the router cuz we live in an rv/ trailer park so. but the other computers in my house work perfectly fine even the other laptop... so what can it be???

    I also have a ASUS eee PC 900 running Windows XP. I got it for my boyfriend a few weeks before Christmas, and it worked great. We have a secure network with an imac that runs both OSX and XP and a Sony Vaio laptop that all still work fine on it. The eee 900 worked fine for a couple weeks on any network we connected it to. He shut it off on Christmas night and it would not load the webpage the next morning. It is still connecting to our network and retained the network key, but it either says "this page cannot be displayed" or " server not found". My brother says the problem is that it is sending out the normal amount of "packets" but it's only receiving a few. If you right click over the wireless network connection icon and click Status, it will show the amount of packets (our says sent 1,196 & received 2). Not entirely sure what would cause this or what would fix it, but hopefully it will help.

Check if other PC use an encrypted Key.
If WLAN is showing as secured you need Wireless Lan Key
Please use same WLAN security protocol WEP or WPA Key or Passphrase.

How to reformat ASUS Eee PC 900 notebook?

I have the linux version, not sure if you have the windows version or if it really matters. If you are looking to "reformat", you can go with the other suggestions with the USB stick. However, if you are reformatting to get back to the default settings, power on the computer and immediately hold F9. This will bring you to a screen that gives you the option to "restore factory defaults". You will lose all your previous settings, but if you were reformatting anyway, that's probably not a big concern.
