I have an eee pc 900 with Linux. Sometimes I can't connect to a wireless service. It will start connecting, but the connetion status will stall at Pending.... and will stay there for hours and hours until I give up. I tried deleting the connection and trying again, but that didn't work. How can I get this to connect?

If you are connecting via wireless, the reason is usually because your router has lost its internet connection. Try switching the wireless router off, waiting 10 seconds and switching it on again.
Can you explain how you are trying to connect and if you can use any other computer successfully, etc.
I will take a wild guess and assume you think you are connected by wi-fi, if that's the case and you are using KDE or GNOME (likely) in the bottom of the right of the screen there's an icon which looks a bit like a screwdriver going into something, click on it and select the wireless network you want to connect to.
please if u have a switch for the wifi connection on your laptop please put it on and should see the wifi on your taskbar also please check in controll panel then go to my network connections and see the wifi resides there if yes just right click and enable if not ther check device manager and check for nework devices if the wifi is enable and installed ...if not please installed by right clicking on it and using reinstall..
please let me know what happens
I found that sometimes I have to "disable" the wireless service, and then "re-enable" wireless before it will show available wireless connections.
After that, just use your normal connection settings - passwords, security type, etc.
As well, at times, if I use the "Wireless Connections" Icon in the "Internet" page to log in, I have to re-type the password in. If I use the "Network Connections" icon in the toolbar at bottom, it seems to remember my password and logs in faster.
If you would like to use wireless inernet, you have to have an access point nearby and that you know the authentication like the WEP or the WPA key, and you can get that from the network admin. click start > connect to > wireless network connection , then click on View wireless networks. click on the network you want to connect to, then click on connect. You should be able to connect after entering the passkey, or it automatically connects if the access point is unsecured.
