Can't find any network

I have the asus wl-138g v2 wifi pci card and when i try to search and connect to a network with winXP it doesnt find anything no matter how many times i press refresh.i even tried to install the asus utility program but it doesnt work too.my cousin has a network near my house and when i boot up my pc with a linux distribution i can easily find his network(also other networks too) and connect.But i want to connect through winXP.When i try to change some card properties (like IBSS channel number,power output,rate,roam tendency,rts threshold) and then refresh networks list it finds for a second all the networks around but with the next refresh they disappear!

Same **** here .... All I am finding all over the internet is people complaining about this card. WTF how Asus could make such a pice of **** ??? My card sometimes connects to the router sometimes doesn't and when it does the speed it terrible really. Did almost everything with it so far nothing helped. I wonder if I can take it back and ask for money back.

You mentioned that you have Windows XP SP1... You need to install at least SP2 or even SP3 for this adapter to work. If this computer doesn't have internet access at all, then you can usually get SP2 or SP3 on a disc for free from Microsoft.

Can't conect to modem


I have just set up a broadband connection for some neighbours using the Thomson router and had similar problems.

Leave the computer on, power down the router, leave it for a few seconds and power it up again. It worked for me.

But it seems that we have this problem every time i,e if the router is on and you switch on the computer it won't connect, but if the computer is on and you switch on the router everything works as it should. I haven't got to the bottom of this yet.

Asus WL-138GE causes system to hang at boot time


Remove the card and install in a different pci slot,it may be a problem with the way windows is giving the pci slot the startup request. Just also double check that the correct driver is being recognised and not a windows generic driver. Look in device manager on hardware tab and see if there is a 'x' or an exclamation mark (!) against the wireless card.
