Question about ASUS Transformer Book Flip TP500L-UB51T Signature Edition Laptop
Brand new laptop won't connect to my existing wireless network. Old Toshiba laptop and iPad have no problems. Is there a known issue with this model?
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.

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

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
And you can try these drivers here.
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.

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
