I have lost the manual and cannot configure the wireless connection to the internet. When I try a box comes up saying windows cannot configure the wireless connection and to use software if I have enabled another programme-but I haven't used any other software.
Can you default my laptop to the original settings or guide me to be able to use the internet

The Sylvania Netbook is an inexpensive 7-inch device that is convenient for accessing the Internet on public or private Wi-Fi networks. It is not intended to replace a regular computer for daily tasks; its purpose is to provide a lightweight unit to access social media and perform small tasks. The netbook defaults to mobile websites, but it does a good job at what it is intended to do. Connecting to Wi-Fi networks with your Sylvania Netbook requires configuring the device properly.
Boot up the Sylvania Netbook by pushing the manual switch below the screen. Push the F9 key to turn on the Wi-Fi on the device. Select the little wireless icon in the toolbar at the bottom; it looks like a small computer. Choose the "Wireless Information" tab. This will show the online status of the device, as in whether it has connected to the Internet. If you have checked the box beside this option, this tab also notifies you when new networks are available. If the status shows that you have connected. You may need to add your wireless router manually in the setup. Do this by choosing, "Add New." Obtain the necessary setup information from your wireless Internet provider. If you have an encrypted network, you will need to fill in that information about your router. To configure the wireless setup further, click on the name of the wireless network. Click on "Advanced Settings" and adjust your connection choices; this tab determines the order of connection if there is more than one network available. Another important setting on this tab is the "Allow Windows to configure my wireless settings" option. Check that box. Click the "Internet Explorer" icon on the desktop. If you are online, you will pull up the Google homepage. Hope this helps.

Try connecting to another wireless connection... if it connects to another connection and you get to the internet, then it is something with your wireless router or modem. Your PC can "see" a wireless connection, so it is NOT PC hardware.
It sounds like you can connect to the router, but cannot go through the router to get to the internet. Probably a simple issue with your modem or router. Try power cycling the modem, and power cycling the router. Then restart your PC and try connecting again.
If all that fails, try installing Mozilla Firefox and see if that will get out to the internet. It may be a problem with Internet Explorer.
The wireless connection device on a computer is used to connect to a wireless router that is connected to the Internet via an Internet Service Provider (ISP) and or to your home or the network where you work. You can also use it connect to a wireless hot spot (like an Internet cafe) for Internet access.
Your computer will need a wireless device either a built-in wireless card, or a PCMCIA wireless card that plugs into your computer's PCMCIA slot or a USB wireless device.
If you want to connect into the Internet wirelessly in your home, you need a wireles router that is connected to a cable modem or a DSL modem and to a ISP.
The wireless router needs to be configured (change the default settings) the SSID and encryption (WEP or WAP, WAP is a stronger encryption method) etc.
The wireless card needs to be configured with the same settings as the wireless router so it can communicate with the wireless router.
For configuration information refer to the wireless router and wireless card/device manuals.
Whilst the settings of these devices are similar between the various manufacturers, the methods they use to configure varies and you need to be precise in giving make and model of the devices, your Windows system and computer to assist us to give you detailed advice.
What are you using Internet Explorer? Anyway I would try using FireFox or some other browser to see if they can complete the downloads.Then if a different browser works the one you are using is faulty and needs to be reinstalled or use the other one as default.The zero configurator is to help you setup and find your wireless conections your router will also have a wireless configutator then the one that windows comes with make sure you know which one you are using.Go to network connections and internet connections, click, then right click on wireless connection,then properties and you should have a wireless tab check to see if the box that says use windows to configure my wireless conections is checked if you want windows to do it. If neither browser finishes downloads redo wireless setup.But I really think it is the browser.Hope you understand what I am trying to say.
