My solution that worked for me: I had this same problem until I set the security up on my router AND required mac addresses for any computer using my router...Haven't had a problem since... Hope I helped... But please know I am NOT an expert of any type!! But it's worth a try since it worked for me.

how long does it stay connected if it does connect at all? catch all method, reset the wireless router to factory defaults if that doesn't fix the problem check your wireless card on your computer to make sure it is enabled and while you are at it go to the manufacturers website and download and install the latest drivers
When it asks for the passcode there will be a space to enter it after the question. If it doesn't, you go to the internet options section and "connect " to the required WiFi signal. Then enter the passcode when requested.
You need to confirm you are actually connected to the internet next. In the Wifi menu that you get to by double clicking the "pc" on the task bar you will see 3 tabs. If the first tab does not have all the IP, sub-net and default gateway filled in with legal numbers then you are not connected. Furthermore if you have an "IP Address:" that starts with 169.xxx.xxx.xxx then you are not connected to the internet.
If your Wifi setup includes a security phrase then under the wireless information tab it will take the following steps: "associating with.....", then "authenticating with...." then "connected to...."
The easiest way to tell if the problem is within a Sylvania Netbook running Win CE 6 is to take it to a McDonalds or other non-secure wifi location and see if it connects.
If it connects there but doesn't connect at "home" then your problem is between the netbook and your home setup not purely a Wifi not working issue.
There is a Wifi driver update available at the www.digitalgadgets.com website as well as the Sylvania Netbook Yahoo group. There are some additional troubleshooting steps at the Yahoo group.
without looking at laptops myself, if it's not a problem where somehow a connection got loose or built up dust and debris, then it could be a hardware issue where the pavilion wifi isn't as good as the vaio's. The same thing happens to me on my hp pavilion dv2000.
