    ASUS Express Gate (Splashtop Browser)

    Perhaps not relevant to this group but I don't know where else to go for
    some help!! Neither the ASUS nor the VM Device (who manufactured Splashtop)
    website are of much help!!

    Just installed new ASUS mobo and it comes with the above which I would like
    to use but in the config panel for Splashtop it doesn't show my wireless
    network so won't connect to the Web. It may be because my mobo doesn't have
    wireless link built in but relies on a BT wireless adapter. Can anyone
    confirm whether that is the problem? Many thanks

    If you don't have a wireless network adapter installed your not going to
    connect to a wireless network

    Re: ASUS Express Gate (Splashtop Browser)

    To connect wirelessly, the computer must have:

    a) its own wireless network card (inside the computer casing)
    or

    b) a USB wireless dongle (installed with the correct drivers)

    Re: ASUS Express Gate (Splashtop Browser)

    Yep - I know that and have said that I have a BT wireless dongle. Don't have
    any probs connecting to Internet whilst WinXP loaded so the wireless bit
    works fine. Just wonder whether it's the dongle causing a prob or if perhaps
    my security sofware prevents splashtop from connecting. In theory I could
    allow the security software to ignore splashtop.exe but I can't find it in
    any WinXP folder so think it is built into BIOS.

    Any other ideas?
    Thanks

    What Firewall are you using?

    If your Firewall monitors outgoing Internet access, you might
    need to configure the program to permit Internet access for
    splashtop.exe.

    Re: ASUS Express Gate (Splashtop Browser)

    Bob,

    I'm using a McAfee software which is tailored to British Telecom Broadband
    and the problem is that it needs to identify the file from the WinXP folder
    list. The file is not in the folder list - I think it's built into the
    BIOS!
    Splashtop loads within 5 seconds of turning on the computer - WinXP is not
    loaded so is there actually a firewall present? I think we need someone who
    knows how splashtop works to solve this one?

    Regards,

    John

    Re: ASUS Express Gate (Splashtop Browser)

    John,

    You are right - Splashtop works with a 512MB flash memory embedded on the
    Asus motherboard. A core engine starts at the BIOS boot and loads a
    specialized Linux distribution called a "Virtual Appliance Environment"
    (VAE). While running this VAE, the user can launch "Virtual Appliances"
    (VA). Skype is a VA, for instance.

    It is possible that the wireless feature is not included in this Linux
    distribution that makes up the BIOS OS bootup. Have you tried it with a hard
    wired ethernet link?

    Unfortunately I do not know enough about it to be more forthcoming.

    You said that the Asus website was of no help, but have you tried the forums
    there? Dependant on the motherboard you have, there are some knowledgeable
    people there.

    Start with the following link:
    http://vip.asus.com/forum/topic.aspx...Language=en-us and select
    the appropriate motherboard from the dropdown box in the top right of the
    page.

    If you make a post, also use the term "Express Gate" as Splashtop was
    rebranded as "Express Gate" on Asus boards (as you are probably aware).

    Hope this helps.

    Martin
