901 XP: Wireless?

Discussion in 'Asus' started by (PeteCresswell), Dec 25, 2008.

  1. Re-formatted my Linux 901 and used nLite to install Windows XP
    Pro from my MSDN discs.

    Seems to have worked: boot time 25 seconds compared to 27 with
    Xandu and 1:01 with Ubuntu. A little over 3 gigs on the system

    But I can't figure out how to get wireless working.

    I went through the Wireless setup wiz, but it seems like I should
    see a wireless icon somewhere on the screen that tells me signal
    strength and allows connecting/disconnecting .

    Maybe I mistakenly told nLite to delete the needed feature?

    Or is there something I need to do setup-wise to start wireless?

    You would need to install the drivers for your PC, or motherboard

  3. Per OldMan:
    Had done that, so I re-installed all the drivers and utilities
    after downloading them from the Taiwan site.

    Somewhere along the line, a little "eeePC Tray Utility" applet
    magically appeared in task bar's notification area.

    It's RightClick popup included an "Enable WLAN" option.

    Duhhhhhhhhhh........ -)
