    What model is the router?
    What OS on the EEPC?
    Can you see the wireless SSID? Do you know the key?
    Any error messages? Is the wireless adapter turned on?

    Post ipconfig /all
    Step 1. Open your command prompt window: Start >> Run >> type cmd and hit Enter

    Step 2. Run the ipconfig command as follows: ipconfig /all

    Step 3. Once the ipconfig command has run, click on the "command prompt window" icon in the very top left corner of your command prompt window and a menu comes up. From it, select Edits >> Mark

    Step 4. Then highlight as you would in a normal text editor by clicking (and holding) where you would like to start your edit and then drag to highlight all the text you wish to copy and release the mouse button. Then you have two choices. You can either hit Enter and the highlighted portion is copied to the clipboard, or you can click on the command prompt window icon again and go to Edit >> Copy

    Now you're ready to paste the copied text into your post!
