Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
No connections with my wireless on. i have restarted, diagnosed, repaired. you name it. my lan connection works but the wireless still doesn't It was working when i first got it then all of a sudden it just stopped.
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!!!

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.
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.
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 http://192.168.1.1 (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.
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.
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.
