It is a hardware problem. The switch on the Asus G72GX is at fault. I own the same machine, and the switch will hard-lock the wifi and will not unlock it. The hot-key will not work either. It took me a very long time to get to the root of the problem. The only solution appears to be to switch the wifi off, power down (restarting didn't work for me), turn the switch on and then power up.

THANK YOU SO MUCH OP FOR YOUR EDIT!!!! This thing has been driving me crazy for hours and rebooting didn't do anything until you said to turn wireless off then reboot before turning back on. You just saved me from tossing a perfectly good (and brand new) laptop out the window!!!

Step 1
Verify that the problem is with your wireless router, and not the ISP. You can hook up you computer directly to the modem to check. If the internet works, it's your router that's on the fritz.

Step 2
To get the internet functioning again, turn off the computer(s) and unplug the modem and router. Wait ten minutes. After ten minutes, plug in the modem and router and fire up the computer. Push the button in the center of the Linksys console (the reset button) 99% of the time this will bring everything back to normal. If it doesn't try it once more before calling Linksys tech support.

Step 3
If the internet cuts out everyday, but you can still get it back using the method in step 2, call tech support for your Linksys wireless router. They will walk you through the process of changing your administrator settings via the Linksys url (this is the ip address of the router) Don't change the settings on your own if you don't know what you are doing.

Step 4
Another source of Linksys troubleshooting tips can be found on the community forums of the Linksys By Cisco website. Thousands of Linksys users like you can share their problems and solutions for common wireless router glitches.

Step 5
One thing that may reduce the frequency of outages is to plug your linksys wireless router into a surge protector. Linksys devices are sensitive to power surges and your device may malfunction more in bad weather.

Hi, i am trying to connect my ASUS WL500g to my linksys WRT54G, but not able to do that. Is there anyone who has used this configuration to get the wifi on both the routers, then plz help me asap. For your...

Your only mistake here is what port you are using on the ASUS. Only modems connect to the WAN port. Connect one of the Linksys LAN ports to one of the ASUS LAN ports. What you are essentially doing is using the ASUS as a wireless access point rather than a router. Additionally, you may have problems if you try to use the same wireless network name and password on both devices. Better to assign a different one to the ASUS and just let devices connect to whichever signal they find strongest.

Missing ATK0100 driver for asus K52J

I'll recommend you to directly try Driver Detective and let the software have a free scan to automatically detect & update the missing ASUS drivers. This way things can be much easier & efficient. Also you don't have to risk install wrong drivers which might cause severe system issues. Regards!

I have No wireless connections

Have you followed the procedure described on page 70 of the Asus User Guide for your laptop to use the Fn + F2 keys to turn on your wireless radio - and do you see the normal wireless led indicator lit?

If yes, then you will probably need to do a diagnose & repair (or troubleshoot problems) depending on which version of Windows you are using. Right click on the wireless connection indicator in the bottom right area of the Windows Status bar and take the option from there.

If you normally only hibernate your laptop rather than powering it off fully, try doing a full power off and restart as hibernation can sometimes get the wireless adapter in a strange state.

Lastly, check that you only have one wireless manager enabled, i.e. use the Windows Zero Configuration manager by preference.

My computer keeps losing the wirelsee internet, and does not show my wireless to connect to. After I push diagnose and repair it wants me to turn on my wireless switch that is all ready on.

Hi mproulx,

It is required to install the Wireless LAN Utility Update and Wireless LAN Driver Update in the Computer to fix this issue.

Here are the link to download the Updates.

Intel Wireless Network Adapter Driver Update

Wireless Switch Setting Utility Update

Please download and install the Updates in the Computer. Also please restart the Computer after each installation for the settings to take the effect. This should fix the issue with the Wireless.

Good Luck!

Hope this helps.

Please post back if you require further assistance.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Wireless connection

Same happened to me so I gave it a kick start, sort of like jump starting the car.

Wifi should be on. A blue light on your right of your keyboard should be on to confirm that.
That's why you have no luck.
Press FN and F2 together at the same time and a little box will come up with saying it's on. Do the same to switch off..

You got to setup a Local Area Connection through your connection wizard. Restart your computer to get it going.
Turn on all your wireless connect it through your router and hit the wireless networks on your eeepc, it should show your wireless and Lan. Ok, now click on wireless, make sure it's your wireless and not another connection.
Don't forget to restart your computer after you've created the connection because otherwise it won't work.

If you still have no connection, go to your connections left click on wireless once and click on properties. On this page you'll see your IP address and DHCP server, scroll down and you'll see signal strength, that means you can connect but we need one more thing done.
Now go to sharing tab and click on share this connection with local area network connections, boom, boom, restart the computer and remember if you still have a prob then you need to go the TCP/IP page input the DHCP your server name their IP Address at client identifier and then restart.
Linux needs a kick start, but once you get it up and going you'll be surfing in no time. I went to hell and back and figured it all out myself, that's my help to guys, good luck!
