Asus Wireless Problemss

Just had to go out and buy a new laptop..... An i5 Asus U52.

 

Can't get the wireless to work!

 

It sees the S.S.I.D. I cannot connect.

 

Using a netgear 3500 router tried standard methods as well as Wps and using routers pin but no joy. An internet search seems to show I am not the only buyer with Asus wireless problems.

 

Anyone familiar with this brand and the procedure?

 

Getting to the point that I am considering rolling up my left trouser leg whilst simultaneously sacrificing the cat...... (with a tin foil hat of course.)

Yeah did that with the same result.

 

Whether security is on or off, it keeps blaming the router and giving instructions for switching the router off.

Okay,

 

Solved the problem:

 

I use the wireless access control to keep stray snoopers off my wireless network.

 

For some reason if I switch access control off, it connected and allowed me to reinstate access control again.

 

Strange but true.....

If you use MAC address filtering (which seems to me to be more pain than it is worth) you either needed to disable it so your router could obtain the MAC address of your new laptop or you needed to add the laptop MAC address to the list of "authorized" clients.

That would be the beastie

Uggh. Turn that off. It gives no additional benefit as long as you are using a good encryption method such as WPA-AES or either WPA2 scheme
