Your laptop has an internal wireless and has the necessary software pre-installed. Is your wireless router or modem not found when you refresh the wireless networks list? If it is found, did you highlight it in the list and click on the "connect" button at the bottom of the screen? And does it indicate "connected"? You mention "Proxy server" is a proxy server required for your internet connection? If no proxy is needed for your connection, you should delete any such from the laptop's settings.
Linux and your laptop were rather made for each other. While I'm sure it's possible to buy a copy of the Windows operating system and install it on the system, you would need to boot from USB and use an external CD rom or somehow put the Windows installation disk on a thumbdrive and make the drive bootable. And then there may not be Windows drivers written for all of your hardware.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

    I did a little Google searching and found reports that Windows will not install on your laptop. Therefore I would not even try to do so if I were you.

If you still can't access webpages to load using different web browsers, then the problem is in your internet connection server. Also about your 2nd problem, go to this link:

Hopefully this should help.

First of all does the modem say you Internet check the LED light or directly connect your laptop to it through the Ethernet interface looks like a phone plug but wider if you do have Internet the problem is with the router. it is not syncing with the modem this should be fixed by reseting or unplugging for about ten minutes if thats does not fix the problem you may have a faulty router or a modem doesn't send the right code to your ICP why you can get LAN Internet and not wireless is one of those mysteries.

FWIW I have had that problem on several wireless adapters. They would detect networks but never connect. Or sometimes they would connect but could never pull up any web pages. Something was wrong with the hardware. When an identical card was used with the affected computer everything worked correctly, so it was a defective adapter. You probably have a bad adapter.

Asus EE PC Issues with Connecting to a wireless network.


You may have a bad wireless card. Just having it see the network is only telling you that the card's recieve function is working. However I have had many bad wireless cards that will see a network and not be able to connect. The fact that you can get others to connect indicates your network/router is working fine. If this is a new pc, I would contact their tech support. If you have a usb wireless card, you could try that and see if the problem pc works with that, which would tell you definitively that
the other wireless is bad.
