Bought this asus eee701 pc a few days back.Have been trying to access the internet via my wireless broadband.It kept asking for encryption key?I'm using Linux os.The wireless router is sitecom.Any suggestions,please.

You need to set up an encryption key in the router and use the same on one on the receiver on each PC that you authorise to receive from that router. This can be any combination of letters & number etc, but should not be easily guessable.

Where did u get ee from & how much?
I am looking into getting one of these....are you pleased with it?
As xania says you need the wep or wpa key from the router. Plug in your cable to the router and browse the settings.
Good luck

Re:from Xania & 2neat:
followed your suggestions-obtained the wpa code from my sitecom wireless router setup and keyed in.No result.Still 'pending.....'

try turning off security on your router & connect.
If this works, it must be a setting. Setup wpa with a simple password 1234 etc & try lappy again.
If this works, increase security password & reconnect lappy. Hope this works.
