I am assuming you are running the Strawberry version? It is more than
likely that the wifi chip in the ASUS does not have support in the
base Fedora system we are using. You have several options, including
loading the driver yourself. (It is not too hard.) You may want to try
the openSUSE version of Sugar on a liveUSB (also available on our
download site) as it has other drivers installed by default.

All of the new versions becoming available this fall will have this feature.

If you have more problems regarding your wifi driver, please send
email to soas at sugarlabs.org.
