Hi,
I bought a box fresh Eee 1001PX today and installed EasyPeasy (1.6) right away. All loks good, though the wifi is not responding. Seems there is no driver. Although the wifi toogle and light works.

I'm a complete newbie and would appreciate any help as I need the wifi to work for my studies.

Cheers

Okay, well, for starters, try this:

I had the same problem with my 1000HA, and that fixed it for me.

If that doesn't do the trick, the next step is to figure out what wireless card you've got, so you can update the driver. Instructions for that are here:

Let us know what kind of card you have and we can go from there.

Cheers!

After hours of googling and trying and re-installing EasyPeasy I found the solution here:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Eee...

The 1001PX has the Atheros Card and the following code worked the magic for me:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-wireless-lucid-generic
sudo reboot
