Can't connect to the internet by a router

 umbrey -
I have got an eee pc 701 and I have problems connecting through wi-fi to the internet. I go right next to the router and try to connect - the signal strength is 100%. All it says is 'Pending' and never connects. I have a Windows laptop but it works fine. What is the problem? Is something wrong with my eeepc?????

Hi, this is not really a question but many people here are having problem with there Asasu EEE PC 4g. they can't go to internet or sometimes it shows pending. I had the same problem too until I called the customer service

their number is :
1-888-678-688 then press 3 and then press 1

so here what you should do to fix the problem, if you follow everything step by step I see no reason why it shouldn't work

1. go to network
2.delete all the connections that you have
3.go to "create"
4. local area network wireless
6. dynamic, next
7. you must have a router to do this step, so click on "brow wireless network" and find your router and "choose" it for mode choose infrastructure and for transfer rate auto
8.wireless setting next
9. click on enable encryption NOW PAY ATTENTION! if your router password containes only letters choose WEP and type your pass word, if it has LETTER AND NUMBER choose WPA and next
10. put a name and next
11. choose connect auto and choose start this connection when and FINISH.

okay here are the steps! I hope this helps
Thank you

On your wireless configuration in windows, you will be asked to enter a code (WEP key)
This will allow you to use the router's connection!
Something similar happens to us. At home we have 2 eee's (original xandros) and 2 laptops. The laptops on windows xp connect without problems, but the eee's literally when they want to. To make things more complicated: sometimes one of the eee's connects and the other doesn't, and sometimes one of them does not connect to our network but it connects to the neighbour's. More crazy things: if one of the eee's does not connect and remains 'pending', if we connect any other computer of the wireless network, the one that is pending connects too (most of the times, now and then the trick fails). And still more: the eee's seem to make shifts, because wen mine says that will not connect my husband's does, and suddenly mine starts connecting and then my husband's gives up.
To me it seems pure nonsense, but might be some more experienced can make something out of these data.
Best luck.
