Question about ASUS Eee 4G Notebook

Failure to connect to wireless network

I'm running Lynux with Firefox as the web browser. This used to work fin but has now developed a fault. The notebook see's all of the available wireless networks and when I click on mine asks me to enter the WEP key.
Following this I get a message saying it is downloading the interface. A few minutes later this chages to a message saying connection pending and thats as far as it goes.
I've tried this on a couple of different networks now with the same result. My other laptop and other computers have no problem connecting via the same networks.
Any ideas?

The WEP key is printed in the bottom side of the router. It is needed only the first time you connect to a router, and the PC "remembers" the settings (i you choose to). Seems like you (or someone) changed the WEP key or you didn't choose to connect automatically before.

How to find my security key


  • Run a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Safari or Google Chrome, and enter 192.168.1.254 in the URL Address text box
  • For security purposes you must create a password for your Gateway. Enter a new password, repeat it, click the submit button
  • You will ask to login again. Enter admin as your username and the newly created password
  • Access the wireless settings page
  • The Network Key is the Security or PIN that you need to connect wirelessly
  • You can also personalize the Network Name (SSID) and the Network Key or PIN

Zyxel 600 security


Open a web browser like internet explorer or firefox. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.1.1. You should see a box prompting you for your username and password.

Enter your username and password now. By default the username is admin, and the password is 1234. Click the Ok button to log in to your router

Click on wireless setup and you should have options there to change the security settings and setup a WEP key(password).

once you do this.
click on start
click on run
type ncpa.cpl
right-click wireless local area connection
click on view available wireless networks
and connect to your network again using the new password that you have just setup
