I've tried calling the Asus help line and searched through all the network/internet settings but no luck (also don't know a lot computer-wise). In the past I've had no trouble connecting to public wireless networks at internet cafes and the like, but private wi-fi? Never.
I'm now living in India and my housemates recently got wireless. Their 3 laptops are having no problem connecting, but when I try to connect (with the correct password for the wireless) a window pops up "WINDOWS SECURITY: Network Authentication. Please enter user credentials" then user name & password. I've tried my general username and password (nothing), tried the internet username and password (nothing) and don't know what it wants.
A friend of mine was searching online and found that others have been having the same problem, and it seems there might be some pre-set security setting in the wireless settings?? If I changed the "mode" box from "auto" to "infrastructure"?? Except I can't find the mythical 'wireless settings' tab or box or button or window.
Anything you can relate to help shed light on this problem would be most appreciated
