Question about ASUS Eee 4G Notebook
Hi, I have a brand new, out of box 4G Eee pc. I have not once been able to connect to the internet. I have a wireless network with a modem and router. I have two other laptops connected and working just fine. I have the key for the network connection, and I know it is correct. I also know that my wireless connection is turned on. I have tried connecting through the Wireless connection Icon as well as the Network Connection Icon and setting up the wireless connection manually. I have no linux experience at all. Any time I try to connect it simply sits on Pending. It stays there and does nothing. Any suggestions? Or should I just call Asus?? Thanks.
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

I suggest thatt you connect directly to your modem using the LAN Blue cable and do an update on your system this can be found " How to do in your User Manual " If you are using original Operating System or if you are using Mandriva 2008 do an update this may fix anyknown glitches in the system
Also on boot up press F2 Key to get into your BIOS ( Built in Operating System and make sure that the wirless is enabled sometime this is not by default and Thirdly make sure that the Wreless Little Blue Light is on You can check this in your Manual too but this is only a switch and if it isnt enabled in your Bios it wont work
Hope this helps
I have had one of these computers for a year and a half and it works great and is really handy Bye for now

That won't work then as the wireless on the asus would have to be at least an N standard as well.

I had the same pending issues as everyone else. I have an Actiontech router using WPA shared key encryption. I solved my problem by broadcasting my SSID network id. I believe the wifi software is at fault and it does not search for wifi signals that have the SSID disabled. I hope this tip helps.
