I can't edit my post, sorry, but wanted to add that the card only works for computers with windows, so you can't connect a mac, a phone, etc. Sorry for the double post.

I'm very confused by this! I also have an ASUS wifi-b card on my desktop PC which acts as a wireless router for my laptop. The desktop has a wired broadband connection. I'm definitely connected to the internet via this connection as I had to enter the key that I set up on the desktop machine when I set it up and encrypted it when I connected on the laptop. I use the soft AP mode internet connection sharing set up, the first listed in section 2.5 of the manual. I know it works!

Hi Tony872,

Do you have a wireless router hooked up to your broadband modem?

If you do not, you will need to purchase a wireless router to hook up to your broadband modem if you want to have wi-fi in your home.

Here is a link that will provide you with some wireless routers that are available.

I hope this helps you out.

    Hi Tony872,

    If you do not have a wireless router broadcasting your broadband internet, there is no way you will not be able to go online with your DS, Nokia n95, or your computer with the wireless network card. The Asus wifi card does broad cast wifi signal and will only work if it is able to locate a signal or if you are broadcasting a signal yourself. So, you will need to hook up a wireless router to your cable modem to be able to go wifi in your home because the wireless modem will broad cast your broad band service. However, once you hook up a wireless router to your modem, I suggest you secure your signal or else anyone in rang of your signal will be able to get online.

How to get wifi

First you need a WiFi wireless card or an USB WiFi adapter.
This will allow you to connect to a free WiFi hot spot location such as MacDonalds, Starbucks etc.
If you want to setup your own wireless network at home the you need a wireless router and then configure the wireless card/adapter in your computer with the router's wireless settings.

First you need to decide what type of broadband andInternet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network which uses the mobile/cell phone network and can beseparate or combine with your cell phone account
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include amodem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service and yourlaptop has a wireless card then you can also connect to the Internet at WiFihot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access theInternet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to checkthe service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to checkwith the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and thecost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed themonthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider,their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installationCD.

What do I need to activate wireless on insignia D400a through broadband?

To use Wifi on a D400 series PC, you would need to purchase a wifi PCI card (Do not get any PCIe or PCI2 or newer card specs) or wifi USB adapter.

Since standard PCI is consider mostly obsolete, they can be found fairly cheak, usually under $10 usd on places like Amazon.

Just bought this of ebay and cant connect to


The first thing that I would advise you to do is,

Uninstall the WiFi Adapter totally from the System first,

Then go to "scan for hardware changes",

This will bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).

After this, Press your Wifi button on the system and ensure that it is On, then Scan for wireless networks.

It should connect like that.

(In case you dont know how to uninstall the Adapter, Right-Click on my computer Icon, Properties, Device Manager, then select the Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall.)

Hope this helps.

Very slow and intermittent wireless internet connection

I seem to have solved the problem by downloading the driver from Asus directly.

I pulled out my Asus card, looked up the card model and downloaded the correct driver. Looks like the windows update or the Dell update must have caused the driver to get whacked. Hope this fixes your issue as well.
