Oh dear. I'm sorry about that. Somewhere at the entrance to Linuxland
there should be a large sign which says never to do this with Asus. A
lot of their stuff is designed specifically to be Windows-only, and will
either never work with Linux or only after a few years when enough is
known about the devices for one of the driver gurus to be able to write
the necessary code.
As Liam said, it's possible that that has now happened, so a firmware
upgrade may fix the problem.
Asus machines should come with a warning label.
