Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
The wifi connection suddenly disappeared. No wireless network available under settings although I am sitting at home with the wifi working on the tv and phone. How do I reconnect wifi network?
This is the common problem coming these days with the laptops. so if you are also having such kind of problem with your laptop, simply update your wireless driver then reboot your computer. it will start working fine properly.

You need first to check if the wireless adapter is installed properly, Ricght click My computer>Properties>Hardware tab>Device manager>look for network adapter and check if the wireless adapter is listed if its there right click on it and go to properties and check the device status..
If the adapter is not showing under network adapter look for anything that says Unknown or other device and you that's where you can find a improper installed device you just need to install the driver for that.
Hope that helps........

Two things. First go into Device Manager and make sure the driver is loaded. Right click on Network Adapter, then right click on your wireless card. you can update driver, remove driver and let plug n play pick it back up, or if looks like no problems then leave it be. second, did you set it up going thru the Wireless Network Wizard..Its under Accessories>comminication in Windows XP.(You didn't indicate which OS you are using). What is probably happening is you are not quite set up correctly and your WEP is blocking you from connecting because the computer does not have your WEP key....if you have any questions let me know.

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.)

I would start with reinstalling your driver for the WIFI:
I think it should help you with your problem, although the WiFi works okay

This worked for me:
Click on the little TV, the RT28701 box will appear. Select the "Wireless Information" tab and highlight your network connection, then click the "Advanced" tab. Check "Use Windows to configure my wireless settings" and the "Automatically connect to non-preferred networks" boxes. "Networks to Access" should read All Available.
Next, double click your highlighted network connection. The "Wireless Networks Properties" box will appear. Make sure the Network Name (SSID) is your network connection.
Under "Wireless Network Key (WEP)" box the information should read:
"Encryption: WEP"; "Authentication: Open"; "Network Key: (the number on your modem)"; "Key index: 1"
All the little boxes should not have checkmarks in them.
Click OK which will return you to the RT28701 box. Click OK again to return to the desktop. Click "Start" tab to shut down netbook and then restart. Turn Wifi on by holding down F9 function key for about 5-10 seconds, or double click Wifi icon and then click the Power On box, which will turn it on. Wait for little tv to show up on bottom taskbar and the red x to disappear from it. Then, click Internet Explorer and it should connect.
