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!

Go into your bios to make sure it's set to the correct settings, if it is, try replacing the motherboard battery, usually the battery number is 4320, it's a round flat battery, sometimes the battery is faulty and needs replacing. If that doesn't remedy the problem post again, I'll try to respond with an update... peace S.C.
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.
SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION 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.
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.)
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.
please if u have a switch for the wifi connection on your laptop please put it on and should see the wifi on your taskbar also please check in controll panel then go to my network connections and see the wifi resides there if yes just right click and enable if not ther check device manager and check for nework devices if the wifi is enable and installed ...if not please installed by right clicking on it and using reinstall..
please let me know what happens
With this Asus wireless B adapter even the new driver dont support WPA wireless security , because right now sicne WPA is a much newer and higher type of wireless encryption only some wireless B adapter supports that and sorry to say this wireless adapter that you have don't support it even with the latest driver so it will be better to get a new wireless G adapter that supports WPA 100% , you can get the wireless adapter from Asus or from other wireless device manufacturer like Linksys, Netgear. Dlink and Belkin....
