Question about ASUS Eee PC 900 PC Notebook

1 Answer

I have the Asus 8.9'' eee PC. I can't connect to guest wireless networks unless it has a super strong signal. I bought this for travel and yet often can't get into wireless even if the signal states 80%. I'm fine at home as long as I'm within 15-20 ft of my router. BTW-It's not a security thing. It's just a signal/connection issue. HELP!

    is it running linux or xp?

    with the linux os, mine had a setting in the wireless options to only connect if it was a certain % strength, try going into the wifi settings and click around, that might be your issue???

I have an ebook notebook 7 but it wont load the internet even though it is saying im connected with a strong signal. any advice?


just because you are connected to a wireless network does not necessarily mean that you can access the internet. Can you access the internet from another wireless device using the same wireless network. If you can then the problem lies with whatever browser you are using and maybe your firewall. Please reply with what windows version you are using and what browser and firewall is on your ebook

Netbook is wirelessly connected, but can't browse web sites


Shouldn't have to do much. I bought my daughteran ASUS Eee netbook with XP on it and it immediately connected to my wireless. Shouldn't be anything special to the settings unless you have specified these in your network settings on the router. If everything is set to default on the router, you should be able to connect with ease. I would enable WEP security on the router though.

Unable to connect to internet . wireless connection shows connected at 150 mphs, using repair function seems to hang up at acquiring network address


The wireless access point may have MAC address filtering turned on. This means, that only explicitly allowed network devices can fully connect. This is used to prevent unwanted guests in your network.
You must ask the administrator of the access point or router to add you to the allowed MAC address list. If it's your router, go to configuration and check if the MAC(physical) address allow/deny list is active.

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.)

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

Will not connect to wireless networks. When I try, it just says connection is 'pending'


1: Choose "Network" in the Internet option, disconnect it and then delete the Connection in the "Manage".

2: Click "Create" to recreate the connection, choose "Local Area Network- Wireless", then Next.

3: Choose "Next".

4: Select Address Type, and then Next.

5: Browse Wireless Networks and then choose the one you want to use, you should see your wireless router/modem and the signal should show "Excellent" or "Very Strong". Choose the mode to be "infrastructure" and the Transfer rate to be "auto", and then Next.

6: Wireless Channel Settings, choose any channel.

7: If your AP is using the WEP or WPA encryption, you need to choose "Enable encryption" and then input the Key and Key index, (If you want your connection secured, you should use WPA and select a key index.) choose Next.

8: Fill in the Name of connection, then choose Next.

9: You can choose the "Connect automatically at system startup" or "Start this connection when finished" if you want, and then choose Finish.

This should correct your connection issues. Good Luck

Pending local network connection asus 701


go to WIRELESS properties

make sure everything setup correctly
(WEP password, ANY channel, etc.)

does it connect to any other wireless networks?

we had one eeepc with the same problem, and
we fixed it by doing a complete restore.

NOTE: use the icon that says NETWORK, not the one that
says WIRELESS NETWORKS. the first one is for
home and work, the wireless network option is for
use in cafes, etc.
