You will need to download the drivers for the wireless card from Gateway's support site. Try the wireless drivers, under network, at the link below. If these aren't the right one's, then back up a page and have the site automatically find you machine. After finding it there will be a list of drivers, the wireless drivers can be found under networking.

I can not figure out how to get the computer to make a wireless connection.


Add the Home SSID to the Preferred Network List After you set the SSID on your home gateway, you may need to add it to your preferred network list if Windows XP Wireless Auto Configuration is enabled. (Although automatic configuration is nice to have, your IT department may have disabled it on your laptop in order to meet their needs. If they have, you'll need to use the tool provided by your laptop or wireless manufacturer to manually configure wireless settings.) To manually add your home wireless network to the list of preferred networks when Wireless Auto Configuration is enabled, follow these steps:
• In Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Connections.
• Right-click the Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties.
• On the Wireless Networks tab, shown in Figure 3, click Add.

Figure 3
• In the Wireless network properties dialog box, shown in Figure 4, enter the SSID you configured for your wireless gateway (ExampleHome_g in this example.)

Figure 4
Note: Figure 4 assumes you've added the Windows WPA Client Update. If you haven't downloaded and installed it, you probably should. For more on the WPA Client Update, see Overview of the WPA Wireless Security Update in Window XP.
• Fill in the rest of the fields, including the necessary authentication and encryption information based on the configuration of your wireless gateway.
• Click OK and your home network will be added to the list of preferred networks.
Now, whenever you're at home, your work laptop should automatically see your home wireless network and connect to it.

1005he can not connect to wireless internet. have another laptop and not having same issue.


Hmmm - are you able to connect to other networks? are you getting a "no connectivity" message? Is wireless not showing at all? If the latter, have you tried checking that wireless is enabled? You may have accidently turned it off by hitting F2 key - can be put back on by hitting F2 again or through EEE PC Tray utility. If you are getting a "no connectivity" message or "limited connectivity", you can try shutting off the wireless and then putting it back on to force your netbook to search for the network again. If that doesn't work,try running the wireless network connection utility (I'm assuming you have Windows XP - if not, please let us all know) - open "Control Panel", click on "Network Connections", status of "Wireless Network Connection" should be "enabled" or "connected". If not, right click on "Wireless Network Connection" and choose "Repair". If that doesn't work, double click on "Wireless Network Connection" again to open the Wireless connection status window - the general tab lists status, network, duration, speed signal strenght, etc. - make a note of what it says here as you may need to post this info for more help. You can close this window. Now yet again right click on "Wireless Network Connection" and choose "Properties" to open another popup window - in the window, click on the "Wireless Networks" tab. The box next to "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings" should be checked. Your home network should be listed in the Preferred networks window - select it and click "Properties" and check that the correct information is entered for your home network (did you change anything recently? Password aka network key, encryption settings, network name - if so you have to reflect those changes here). If your home network is NOT listed, you need to create it. Click OK to save any changes you make, exit out of all the menus, then (if necessary) use F2 to disable and re-enable your wireless to force your netbook to look for the connection again. If this doesn't work, go to Device Manager (open Control Panel, click on System, click on Hardware tab, click on Device Manager). In Device Manager, scroll down to Network adapters - if there is a yellow triangle with an exclamation point next to your 802.11n Wireless LAN Card, then you have some sort of device conflict or driver issue - is there an error message? If there is no yellow triangle and no error message, then you can exit Device Manager. If you are getting an error message or yellow triangle, try and fix this issue by reinstalling the correct driver from Asus or fixing the conflict - right click on 802.11n Wireless LAN Card and choose "update driver" if you need to do that (you will have to download the correct driver using another machine and copy it onto your netbook first) - otherwise choose "Properties" to troubleshoot. If there is a yellow triangle and/or an error message and you cannot get it fixed, it might be a good idea to make a note of error messages and details of what you tried so you can post them here to assist people in helping you.

If there was nothing wrong in the device manager, or if none of the above worked, it is possible that you have a malware infestation that damaged your winsock. In that case you can download Winsock XP Fix from Snapfiles or Cnet (from another computer), copy it onto your netbook and run it. If that fixes your problem, you may have malware issues and should do a virsucan (if you do not have an antivirus installed, get Avira free which is awesome) - I would also strongly suggest you download the free versions of Malwarebytes, Superantispyware and Emsi's A2free usb and run them to clean your system.

If none of the above works, then as a last resort you could back up all your data onto disk or an external drive and then use the Asus restore function to set your netbook back to factory default. You would have to reinstall all your software and reconfigure your netbook and copy all your data back - but at least hopefully your wifi would be working! If restoring to factory default did not fix your problem, then you almost certainly have a hardware failure.

Hope something above helped ya. Good luck.

I cannot get my laptop to connect to the internet either wirelessly or hard-wired. I have two other laptops, connected wirelessly, and a desktop connected via hardwire. It recognizes the router but says...


if you are trying through wireless, first unplug the wire from the laptop,

make sure that the wireless switch on your laptop is turned on.

click on start, control panel, network connections/network & internet/ Network and sharing center..

right click on wireless network connection Icon, if it says disable, it means it is enabled already.

then click on status..

from here the steps would differ from OS to OS

then click on Support tab (for XP)
check the address type, it should be "Assigned by DHCP"
and if you see the IP Address starts with 169., it is a bad IP and needs to disable the connection and enable it.

if the connection type is "Assigned Manually, right click on wireless network connection icon and click on properties and click Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click on properties, in this window, check the option "Obtain IP Address Automatically from DHCP"

click ok and OK ..

again right click on the wireless network connection icon and click on view available networks... click on your router name and click on connect..

now check the functionality.

if you are using windows 7 or vista,

click on status, click on details for the IP Address..

We see DHCP Enabled as YES or NO instead of "Adress type"in XP

if it says no, it means it is assigned manually. to change to DHCP , right click on Wireless Icon, select properties, click on IPV4 IP address and click properties, then select obtain automatic..

then try again..

hope this works,

I do not see any wireless icon in the network connection...i dont know what to do...please help me....


First go to the control panel > device manager (In XP the manager is in the System folder). Scroll down to network adapters, open it and look at the adapters listed....there should be two, one should be an ethernet card and the other a wireless or WLAN card. Look to see if there are yellow icons by their names. This usualy indicates a problem with either the card or the drivers running them. If they do not have yellow trouble symbols by them, then make sure the wireless switch is turned on either by switch on the outside of the laptop or by an Fn key combination. In the case of your laptop, the switches were optional, but just in case look on the front edge of your laptop, by the audio jacks on the left side should be your wlan switch, make sure it is in the "on" position. If there are yellow icons by the wireless, try right clicking on the adapter and uninstalling it. Then reboot, make sure you are connected to the internet via ethernet cable, you will want to let windows search windows update for a new driver when it reinstalls the device upon rebooting. See if that takes care of the problem. Also, if you have changed the way your system boots like say "selective startup" through the msconfig command, that may need to be temp. changed until this is cleared up, then you can go back to it.

I just got my Asus Eee PC 1000H and the first thing I tried to do was to connect to the wireless network in my house but I don't have a wireless network icon. The wireless and bluetooth are both turned on....


Hi,
I am assuming this has windows xp on it. Go to start settings/control panel then double click wireless network setup. Go through the wizard and go from there. If you need further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,

No internet connections found


First, you need to be sure that the wireless networking adapter is enabled.

  1. From the Start menu, click Control Panel.

  2. In Control Panel, click Network Connections.

  3. Check the status of Internet Connection and Local Area Connection that indicates WIRELESS (it's most likely a Broadcom product).
  4. If either item says disabled or not connected, right click and select ENABLE from the menu.
  5. Close all open dialog boxes and windows.
  6. Use the Windows XP Wireless Zero Configuration, located in the system tray at the bottom of your screen, to test the adapter.
  7. Double-click the icon with one monitor and 3 wave lines on the right side. Your network should be detected.
If that doesn't pan out, post back and I'll give you Plan B.
