i cannot connect my Eee notebook to
wireless contention why

Can your system “see” the wireless network ?

If it can see the wireless network, but not connect… see if this topic helps:

If not, can you open a terminal and enter:

sudo lshw -C network

hit enter, and your password if/when asked… then post back here with the output.

Also post the output from this command entered in a terminal:


And post the exact make/model of your netbook.

Does it have a wireless card? If so, is your wireless switch on?
