Internal Wireless Adapter for eee 900 device not listed
Until last week my wireless on my brand new eee pc was running like a champ, however sometime over the weekend I noticed that find wireless network was missing from the Network Connections window(Windows XP SP3) I went into device manager and the Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter is no longer listed. So I reinstalled the device (software only since it is internal) and it installed as Atheros AR50...Adapter #2 and I still have no options for wireless connections. If I boot to safe mode I can see 3 entries for each network adapter, the adapter itself, a Deterministic Network Enhancer Miniport, and a Packet Scheduler Miniport for each one accept that the original wireless adapter is missing, but there still are entries for the deterministic and packet scheduler for it.

You cant buy compatable wireless adapters for this netbook as yet.You might be able to configure another type of modem on an ad-hoc basis.
Your adapter is most probably for another type of pc/netbook
Consult manufacturers manual for list of compatable devices

At this point you have tried the various troubleshooting procedures and have determined that the wireless card is faulty. To save yourself alot of time and effort, I would advise you to buy an external wireless adapter and disable the faulty internal one. Yes, it is a pain but going through this routine just to connect is not ideal.
hi, the Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter is your built in wireless adapter. right click that then check the status if it is working properly, it would tell you that on the status, on that you will also have an option to go and update the driver of your card.
