I am trying to get my g'daughters Asus notepad to connect to my BT router wifi ..

Since i cant put a CD into it I cant load the provided stuff, and since I cant connect I cant down load anything ..

Please, any one able to tell me how to do it ?

I believe the Asus uses Linux

Thanks

Urm have never used a CD to connect a device to WiFi

The notepad should when you see the correct HomeHub signal, ask you to enter a security key, which if you've not changed it will match the one written down on the HomeHub or its removeable tab.

Re CD .. Cd came with router .. used it to set up PC & laptop .for Broadband ..

On the Asus I select the appropriate connectionBTHUB3-XQBS and tell it to connect ..

It doesnt't query anything, just goes ahead and says connecting and then pending ..

if I check it it implies it is connected, (offers the choice of disconnect or reconnect)but has no access to the internet.

I can try to create a connection, all appears Ok till I hit "Encryption settings" .. which give the choice of WEP or WPA (Whatevere they are) WEP rejects theWireless key, but WPA seems ok .. goes through 'Closing connection' Starting , and then sticks at pending
