I have a friend with an ASUS laptop that would connect to some wireless networks but not to others. The problem turned out to be the driver for the wireless card. The one that was preinstalled is not the correct driver. If you delete the driver and restart, Windows will reinstall that same incorrect driver.

The solution was this:
1. Download the appropriate driver from the ASUS support site.
2. Find the wireless card in Device Manager and delete the driver.
3. Install the driver you downloaded from the ASUS support site.Don't restart until after the entire process is complete.

Note that the correct driver (from the ASUS site) is older than the preinstalled (and Windows reinstalled) driver.

Have you updated the drivers for the WIFI adapter to the latest?

Also, there were different standards for WIFI in the past, so if your router is really old you may see issues. Is your WIFI router at the latest firmware?

updating the driver should resolve your issue.

On an unsecured access point (not WEP or WPA) it should work.

Presumably you don't need to set a proxy in Mozilla?

You may be choosing the wrong encryption method. For instance your entering your wireless key (WEP) and you have it set on (PSA, WPA). Make sure those settings match. Also you may have an IP conflict which is resolved by setting up a static ip. If the encryption methods match and you need help with a static IP let me know

SOURCE: my asus laptop pro3 series version F3JC will not

I have seen issues like this before , certain chipsets/drivers of wireless cards and routers just dont like each other.

We know your wireless card works just as we know your router works. Trick is to get them to play nice together. Unfortunately, there is no quick and easy way to do this, you will have to try different driver and firmware combos until you find one that works.

You can get dlink updates here
http://support.dlink.com/downloads/

And you can try these drivers here.
http://asus-drivers.blogspot.com/2009/01/asus-f3-f3jc-driver-download.html

One other thing you can try before messing around with drivers and firmware is changing the application you use for wireless. The default for your setup is probably Intel Proset. Try using the native Vista wireless manager and see if that does anything. to access that go to start , run , type in services.msc, scroll down to WLAN auto config. Double click on it and then click on start. If you still cant see your router, its time to start trying drivers and firmware.

SOURCE: 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

HOW do i use wps on my ipad with WNR2000


Depending on your browser, download or display the pdf of the WNR2000 manual ( http://documentation.netgear.com/wnr2000/enu/202-10397-01/pdfs/FullManual.pdf ). The manual might also be found on the CD that came with the router.Follow instructions Chapter 2 Page 7 to enable/setup WPA2-PSK (AES).Make sure you SAVE/APPLY the settings before proceeding. Follow instructions Chapter 2 Page 17 to Disable Router's PIN. When you do, make sure you leave the box checked to "Keep Existing Wireless Settings".Make sure you SAVE/APPLY the settings before proceeding.Here's a work-around ff the above doesn't fix the issue for you. Sorry I don't have iPad-specific instructions, but I don't have access to an iPad/iPhone at the moment. I've done the following on iPads, iPhones, Android phones and tablets, Windows phones and PC's - it works on virtually all Wi-Fi-capable devices..:
Instead of letting your iPad find the network and trying to connect with the password, try manually creating a new Wi-Fi network connection by typing in your Wi-Fi network name (SSID), selecting WPA2 (AES) encryption and entering the Wi-Fi password your configured in STEP 2 above.Please note: You'll have to forget the Wi-Fi network in your iPad's settings if you keep your Wi-Fi network name (SSID) the same as it is currently.

How to remove an Existing Wireless Profile (XP, VIsta, Win7)


When we connect to a wireless network, a "profile" is saved so that, in the future, the Wireless Network Adapter will connect automatically to the network if it is available. These profiles are saved and used by Windows even if you changed the settings on your wireless router causing connection problems. You need to delete these profiles to allow Windows to create a new one that is compatible to the new settings of the router. <br /> <br /> To delete an Existing Wireless Network Profile: <br /> In Windows XP, if you're using "Wireless Zero Configuration" to manage your wireless networking, go into the Network Connections folder ("Start &gt; Run", type ncpa.cpl and click OK), right click the Wireless Network Connection, select Properties and then the Wireless Networks tab, where you can highlight and then "Remove" an existing profile. <br /> <br /> <br /> <img src="iantechson_3.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> If you're using third-party software provided with the wireless adapter, there should be a similar option to remove an existing profile. <br /> <br /> In Vista or Win7, right click "Network" (My Network Places) and select Properties. Click the link at the left to "Manage Wireless Networks" then, in the next window, highlight the "Network" to delete and click the "Remove" button. <br /> <br /> <br /> <img src="iantechson_4.jpg" /><br />

Is there a dvd player on the ASUS TP500L laptop?


You could connect the two devices by a network cable (Cat 6 RJ45) and use file sharing, but I prefer to use a USB-to-USB transfer cable, like the one attached. It is USB 3.0 compatible but is still very fast at USB 2.0 speeds.

Without an ethernet cable attached, my computer says 'not connected, no connections available'. Please help. Thanks.


Need a little more information. Is this a desktop or a notebook? What brand and model of router are you using? Is this an existing installation (previously worked) or is this a new install that has never worked? If it is an existing setup that used to work, did you recently change anything that might have caused it to stop working?

Please email me for my number at jason.semon @ gmail.com
This is almost impossible to explain in a message, but I can secure your network in a short time.

As far as the issue of being 30-40 ft apart from the router, this depends on the both the WRT160n and the Wireless NIC in the laptop. Some are better than others. The NIC in the Toshiba may not be all that great. I am not familiar with these.

Laptop remote use


it seems your laptop has build in wireless adapter which allows you connect to wireless networks if exist within the area. You may share your neighbors internet connection if they have wireless router also you can access internet from public wifi access locations like cafes, restaurants you can find the wifi locations on www.wifinder.com . Also you can obtain your own router than you can connect to existing internet connection which can be shared more than one computer.
