Is WIFI installed and ready to go withthis OS?


The OS itself does not contain wifi. Wifi is hardware that is installed in the device. AS far as the OS is concerned, yes the OS does support the wifi networking protocols. You MAY have to load the wifi adapter driver(s) for you device if Windows does not have a native one that is compatible, however. You can determine whether or not the driver is installed by going to the DEVICE MANAGER and looking at NETWORK ADAPTERS. If there is no wireless adapter present or there is an exclamation mark alongside the adapter, then you need to load the driver to get wifi functionality within the OS.

Wifi not working


Make sure that driver is installed properly. If it is, check for wifi switch. Make sure it is turned on. In some laptops do not have switches, they use the functions keys to turn them on. Use Fn+F2 or Fn+F3. Also, make sure that you just have one wireless utility activated in the computer. It is more advised that you use the Windows Wireless utility which is more compatible with most types of routers.
Lastly, check your wireless card and the wireless router if they are wireless a,b,g or n. If the router is wireless n, your card should also be wireless n. If your card is just b or g, it would not work.

System do not reconize the PCI card


Does it ask for a driver to be installed? Or have you got the wireless version of the mobo that needs an ASUS WiFi-b add-on card with an omni-directional antenna?

Like on the previous version of the mainboard, the PCB contains five PCI slots and an exclusive WiFi slot, in its left part. By the way, when you install the original WLAN card from ASUS into this slot, the last PCI becomes unavailable. Now let’s examine the card, too.

The card supports the wireless networking protocol IEEE 802.11b, describing data-transfer rates up to 11Mb/s. Using the software that accompanies the card, you can use it in the Ad Hoc as well as in the Infrastructure mode, and the card can perform the functions of a programmable access point, providing connections to 31 clients. Thus, the owner of the WiFi-b kit can easily deploy wireless networks and connect to existing ones.

Sounds like one of these problems.

1) The wireless hardware is turned off in the BIOS. Reboot and check to see if there is an entry in the BIOS for the embedded wireless card and if so make sure it is set to ON.

2) The hardware is not recognised because the drivers are not properly installed. Check in DEVICE MANAGER to see if the wireless appears at all, and if it is in an error state. If so, re-install latest drivers from the manufacturer's web site.

3) Other software necessary may be missing. Some machines have wireless manager clients that they need to access the card. Check on the manufacturers' web site for these utilities, and if found, install them and reboot watching for new (different) problems to arise.

4) You could have buggered wireless hardware, but this seems pretty unlikely. Some wireless cards are add-ins and can be removed from the laptop motherboard by accessing them through a door on the bottom of the unit. If that is the case with your machine, power down the unit and remove the wireless card. Check in the hardware manager to make sure no device errors for the card remain, and if they do, remove the hardware by right-clicking on the error device icon and clicking on REMOVE HARDWARE. Then, power down and re-insert the wireless card and reboot and try a clean install.

Good luck...
