ASUS A626 Wireless 802.11b/g

It seems almost impossible to get a wireless signal unless you within a few feet of the router. I have already set the card to on the PDA to be at 100% power but that doesn't seem to help at all. Also, ASUS tech support is of no help.

Any thoughts on what I might be able to do to improve the wireless connection?

It doesnt go thru walls very well, 5m seems the limit with deteriorating signal. Rather get your wireless router out into the open (not hiddden behind a computer desk) and the antenna pointing in the direction of the other one. There is a signal strenght utility that asus has that stays resident as an app. use that to assertain your signal viability

Asus A626 won't charge.

Power supply problems are relatively common with ASUS products like this one it should be covered under warranty and be easily replaceable if not simply order one online.

(it is rare for the device itself to have charging issues, unless it was dropped in which case that could be a possible explanation)

How do i set up the wireless connection on my asus 626. I recently purchased this unit and I'm trying to set it up to connect to my wireless internet at home. I don't know how to do this and I'm hoping...

Do it the easy way.
In the ASUS turn off dhcp server.
Change its ip to the same range but different ip to the netcomm and outside the dhcp range. ie. if the netcomm is and hands out addresses from 2-100 make the Asus which is the top address. (I have no idea what netcomm you have so you will have to figure this out. ) If you want more detail tell us exactly what IP addresses the modem and the Asus are using.

Last step. Plug the modem into a LAN port of the ASUS, not wan. It will then work fine as wireless access point.

I am trying to connect my asus mypal to my wireless internet

Hi, I helped a friend of mine with his wifi setup. His WEP Key was on the side of his router. I don't remember the exact work but it was something Key. It was 10 numbers long just right for a 64 bit key. If you are using Win XP there is a wifi setup in there. I have a mypal A626 and had it up and running in a few minutes on my wifi system. If you have security, you will need to find the code in order to get a connection. grader01

Unlocked SX66 - Can't connect to internet

The first thing to do is make sure that the wireless router allows for the same Network Autentication. Depending on your wireless router you might have to check your user manual, but the trick here is to set the autentication "WPA-TKIP" on your wireless router, then set a custom key for for acces, once that is done, open the Wireless Manager by taping on the little blue anterna next to the bluetooth manager, is on the bottom right corner of your device, chek the "on" box, on the same screen tap once on the "Tools" menu, bottom left of the screen, next tap on  "Network Cards" there you should be able to see the network you want to access, if not, add the name of the network you just changed a few moments ago, if you don;t know the name of the network, go back to you'r wireless router set-up page, and change the pre-set name to something you remember, next select the "Connects to: internet" option", next tap on "Network key" tab at the bottom of the screen, set the Autentication: "WAP-PSK" and Data Encryption to  "TKIP", and finally input the custom network key you created earlier on the router set-up page.
Note: as far as I know there is a diference of the level of secitity the the 2 diferent data encryption type provide, and i think WPA is Older and most new wireless routers have WEP, or WEP 2, but if you live in a residential neiborghood and your router range is say 200 feet you only have to worry about ur immediate neigbors craking the network key using high tech sofware, to get to use ur wireless signal.

I have a Asus A626 and i would like to know how you get internet on my device .

Make sure that there is a hot spot around that is unsecured for free access. If not, you'll have to get an access code. A wireless router works best.

I had the same problem. I installed something that was supposed to help me connect faster, but it messed up my whole system. I hard reset it and tried it out with the new router we got. I turned on the wi-fi and it asked me if I wanted to connect. Ever since it works.

Test the network capability - ping your card and also do an auto detect through home network set up.
If it still doesnt feature, unplug, reboot phone and replug. shoul;d work!
