Asus EE PC Issues with Connecting to a wireless network.

Hi There

I am having a lot of trouble connecting my new Asus EE PC to our wireless network. I have tried connecting it to the network at home and at work. It seems to have got itself in a twist.

I can connect quickly and easily to our LAN with the network cable. The wireless is working because it picks up the wireless networks in the area. I have confirmed that the code I am entering (WPA) is correct by connecting other devices to the network. I have deleted and re-created the connections several times, rebooted around 20 times but nothing is working.

It gets all the way to attempting to find an IP address and then falls over giving 255.255.255 errors.

Any suggestions please would be invaluable!

Ok I have a new ee with linux and had all the above problems. Geek at best buy helped me understand that linux doesn't do things automatically the way windows soft ware does. It gets confused easily! Since learning to think differently and not expect things to happen automatically I've had NO problem! For starter delete every network you can in the network icon. Have it be blank. Then choose one of the wireless available and I bet you'll get on. Always go to the network icon to reconnect to an network you've used before, if you choose it from the wireless available you will start a new connection, the linux doesn't know which one to use and you see pending - not knowing why it worked once and now today you cant get on. Bottom line, until you learn to think like this operating system just delete all the networks each time, and then connect. Over time you'll learn more.........

You may have a bad wireless card. Just having it see the network is only telling you that the card's recieve function is working. However I have had many bad wireless cards that will see a network and not be able to connect. The fact that you can get others to connect indicates your network/router is working fine. If this is a new pc, I would contact their tech support. If you have a usb wireless card, you could try that and see if the problem pc works with that, which would tell you definitively that
the other wireless is bad.

Given the Acer sees the network, the times I have been frustrated connecting a new computer to a wireless network, it's usually been something very simple. I have forgotten one setting, transposed a letter or number. Go back through and make sure everything is exactly right.
