    Hi, my name is Meryl. I live in Tamworth, NSW, Australia.
    I have owned my ASUS TF101 since November 2011. I found this site through Google when I was looking for help with my internet problem.
    I can access the internet through Wi-Fi, but when I put a card in the computer it doesn't connect. I have taken the card to the supplier and it works in other tablets so it's not the card.
    I've set up the access point name according to the instructions on the suppliers website but still nothing.
    I'm looking for suggestions.
    thanks

    Welcome to the forum

    Unfortunately you're a little shy on some of the most important information. What type of card are we talking about?

    It isn't possible to install a SIM card in the Transformer TF101. It doesn't have any of the required hardware.

    Sorry, just checked the box - it is a tf101g.
    One of the leaflets that comes with it is called 'Installing SIM card'.
    I have followed the instructions and nothing happens.

    Ah "g", very important information. Try installing this app to see if it helps. Don't forget that the SIM card needs to be activated with a data provider.

    I've got it working. I needed to use a combination of the default information and the information on the website for setting up the SIM card. thanks
