The Asus line of netbooks, which are smaller than normal laptops and are designed for basic computing and mobile Internet access, is called the Eee PC. While these computers are designed for accessing the Internet, they are known to have wireless connection issues.
Operating System Based
Some connection problems are based on the operating system you choose to run on the Eee PC. The netbook, as of 2010, comes preloaded with Windows 7 and its hardware is designed accordingly. If you choose to run another operating system on the netbook, make sure the hardware is compatible with the different operating system.
Enabled Wireless Connection
In the Windows operating system, you can choose to turn the computer's wireless connection on or off. Right-click on the wireless icon in the taskbar to make sure the wireless connection is enabled if you are having wireless connection issues.
Qualified Router Issues
Some Eee PC users have reported that their wireless connections will inexplicably stop working on certain networks. According to Asus technical support, the Eee PC can only connect to "qualified routers," but there is no documentation as to which routers are qualified and which are not.
