[IAEP] Update: Wish this little PC was an XO! :-(

Many thanks to all of you who tried to help me get my eeePC back on the internet (Skype works fine).  I tried all of your suggestions and none fixed the problem.

Yesterday I called asus and was very surprised to find they would provide telephone support, even though the netbook warrantee was up about 9 months ago.  In fact they said they are there to help as long as I have the machine! (Are you listening Apple? This is what you used to do).

Anyway, they said that I need to reset to factory settings (the netbook would only let me reset to December 14, 2010... not far enough!).  I need a Support DVD (which came with the machine) and a usb optical drive so I can use it as a boot disk. 

So I guess I will make a trip to Frys sometime soon and see what I can find. Maybe even this afternoon. I was thinking of getting one with light-scripe anyway.  Any recommendations?  The asus guy recommended Lite-on.

Thanks again for all of your efforts to help.  I'll let you know if and when the problem is solved.


P.S. In essence, I will be doing what we do with the XOs... reflashing!
