    Did all you said and the system couldn't be restored as it said no changes had been made. It would only allow me to go back to september to restore. Is there anything else I can do?

Cannot accress WiFi on Sylvania SYBET7WIC-BK-Z


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.

I dont know how to connect to the internet


Hello,
1.Install your wireless network adapter in Windows XP with SP2. This process includes installing the proper drivers for your wireless network adapter so it appears as a wireless connection in Network Connections.

2.When the computer is within range of the wireless AP operating in your home or small business, Windows XP should detect it and prompt you with a Wireless networks detected message in the notification area of your taskbar.

3. Click the notification message. If you are not notified, right-click the wireless network adapter in Network Connections and click View Available Wireless Networks. In either case, you should see a dialog box with the name of the wireless connection.

4 Double-click your wireless network name. Windows XP will attempt to connect to your wireless network.

5.Because Windows XP has not been configured with the WEP encryption key for your wireless network, the connection attempt will fail and Windows XP will prompt you with a Wireless Network Connection dialog box. Type the WEP key in Network key and Confirm network key, and then click Connect.

6.If the status message for your wireless network in the Wireless Network Connection dialog box is Connected, you are done. If the status message for your wireless network in the Wireless Network Connection dialog box is Authentication did not succeed, click Change the order of preferred networks in the list of Related tasks. From the Wireless Networks tab of properties of your wireless network adapter, click the name of your wireless network in Preferred networks, and then click Properties.

7.In Network Authentication, click Open. In Data encryption, click WEP. In Network key and Confirm network key, type the WEP encryption key as configured on the wireless AP.

8.In Key index, select the key index corresponding to the encryption key memory position as configured on the wireless AP.

9.Click OK to save changes to the wireless network.

10.
Click OK to save changes to the wireless network adapter. Source(s): http://www.microsoft.com/technet/network...

  2. Under Network Tasks, click Create a new connection, and then click Next.
  3. Click Connect to the Internet, and then click Next.
  4. Click Setup my connection manually, and then click Next.
  5. Click Connect using a broadband connection that requires a user name and password.
  6. In the Connection Name dialog box, type the name of the ISP. This becomes the name of the connection. Click Next.
  7. In the Internet Account Information dialog box, type the user name and password. Additional checkboxes allow you to specify whether this connection and its user name and password is available to all users (selected by default), whether this connection is your default Internet connection (selected by default), and whether to enable the Internet Connection Firewall on the connection (enabled by default). Make the appropriate selections, and then click Next.
  8. In the Completing the Connection Wizard dialog box, review the settings. If you need to modify any of them, click Back as many times as necessary. If all the settings are correct, click Finish.
  9. In the Connect dialog box, click Connect to attempt the connection

FOR WIFI
First, you should get wireless internet on your computer (thorugh a router) or get a Wi-fi USB (they're discontinued, so look hard if you want one)

Now you can either watch this video, follow this link or simply have a look at my steps:

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 w/ window xp. I show my wireless connection on the signal is excellent but when i click internet explorer its says its connect to internet - i dont have working offline clicked...


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.

Trying to set up wireless laptop. Instructions tell me to input


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.

Wireless zero configuration is not activated


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.

Xbox live on this laptop


I assume you have a crossover ethernet cable.
put the my network places on your desktop.
right click on desktop/properties/desktop/customize desktop/tic
then on the network places icon on desktop right click/properties
right click on wireless and bridge devices
they are now sharing the same ip
be sure and remove /delete bridge when not sharing as the ip will stick forever likely.
that should do it if you need more info /open my computer and hit help and search for internet connection sharing as the firewall may need to be configured.
