You probably have the wireless power turned off.

Check to see if there is a hard switch somewhere around the computer

Or something that looks like an antenna on your keyboard.

Let me know if you find it and what happens when you switch it on.

Best of luck!

Read the Printer Manual.. You first have to establish the wireless connection between the printer and your wireless router. It involves sitting at the printer and going thru the printer menu to put in the wireless ssid and password or network key. Then you can print out the wireless settings from the printer's menu and then go to your Asus PC.

Once you are at the ASUS PC you want to take the installation disk for the printer and put it in the CD drive to install the printer software on the ASUS. When it asks you about the connection, you want to choose Wireless Connection. It should automatically search and find your printer that is already on the wireless network. Just follow the steps to complete the installation.

Cant connect my Asus eec pc 1001px net book to a wireless network. Window says were connected but wont connect


In this case, "connected" means that it can "talk" to the wireless router.

But, it does not mean that you have "authenticated" to the router, by entering an SSID and a password.

I have a laptop running 802,11 g/b and vista and I Cant connect to linksys wag160n wireless router(802,11 n). laptop sometimes recognises network but when I try to connect it wont. could you help ?


Hi, You cannot connect across wireless protocols. In other words to connect to 802.11 n you need an "n" adapter.

Now, the router should be backward compatible & provide wireless g/b but you may find that when you search for networks it will be listed as a seperate network name (from the same router)

Try searching for this other network. Your router documentation should advise you of its default name & any set up process

Asus eee pc 900a wireless connection not working


I've experienced the same problem with my ASUS netbook. Uninstall the wireless hard - remove hardware in control panel, reboot the machine and allow it to auto find the adapter again. This should correct it. If there are still problems verify that you have the most current driver for the wireless adapter, either from Asus, or the wireless adapter chipset manufacturer (i.e. Intel, broadcomm, etc.)

If no broadcast available, check your router's wireless configuration.

ASUS EEE PC w/ Windows XP will not Connect Wirelessly


You need to know if your home network requires a password or paraphrase to allow you to connect. Also, you might have to check your settings on your router, they have to match the settings of your laptop wireless adaptor. You can try these solutions and if no luck post with more information

My asus laptop pro3 series version F3JC will not connect to or locate wireless network at home which uses d-link wireless router. laptop is running vista premium. it will connect if i use a wireless usb...


I have seen issues like this before , certain chipsets/drivers of wireless cards and routers just dont like each other.

We know your wireless card works just as we know your router works. Trick is to get them to play nice together. Unfortunately, there is no quick and easy way to do this, you will have to try different driver and firmware combos until you find one that works.

You can get dlink updates here

And you can try these drivers here.
http://asus-drivers.blogspot.com/2009/01/asus-f3-f3jc-driver-download.html

One other thing you can try before messing around with drivers and firmware is changing the application you use for wireless. The default for your setup is probably Intel Proset. Try using the native Vista wireless manager and see if that does anything. to access that go to start , run , type in services.msc, scroll down to WLAN auto config. Double click on it and then click on start. If you still cant see your router, its time to start trying drivers and firmware.

Notebook won't connect to network


1) Verify if Wi-Fi WLAN interface of your notebook is OK.
1a) Check whether HW switch is ON and the wireless system service is running.
1b) Switch on the WLAN Access Point (router) SSID broadcasting.
1c) Scan WLAN networks by the notebook. Can you see your home WLAN? If not, there is HW or SW problem in your wireless adapter probably. If WLAN is visible, continue by next steps.

2) Remove all WLAN security on both sides (AP and notebook): Authentication = none/open, encrytption = none.
3) Activate DHCP server in the router and set the dynamic IP assigning on WLAN notebook interface.
4) Select your home WLAN SSID in the list and try to connect.
5) Wait and check status. Is WLAN connected? Does obtain the notebook an IP address?
6) In success case set the WLAN security.

I think the problem is diue to interference as you said you live in an apartment.
You can get a better router system or have someone come in and configure the one you have and make it a secure connection with password

Wireless connection won't work at home


Check your router is accepting backward compatible connections of 802.11b, as it may be set at 802.11g only especially if it's a 108 or 125mbps router as your laptop will only be 54mpbs and not see the router at all. Sometimes you have to dissable then re enable the wireless network adapter or refresh it for it to do a new search of networks.
