IN xp my hp mini 110 would not accept the above solution so I had nothing to lose but to un-install the broadcom hardware (right click-uninstall option).
I then opened the "install new hardware" icon in control panel. XP automatically started "searching for new hardware", found the adapter, notified me it was found, initiated an "install" automatically.
And...
Now it works :D
Thank you for the "direction".

Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.

Windows XP:

Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

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 have a 'new' aspire one netbook and i cant make work. it says in need to be connected to a network. ihave an acerlaptop that works just fine on network 7AP13. i am connected verizon fios and am not


That means there is a corrupt or a missing wireless driver on your new acer laptop. First of all if you are using Windows XP follow the following
1. Go to start
2. Right-click on "My computer"
3. Go to "Properties
4. Go to Hardware tab
5. Go to Device manager
In the device manager check for any yellow question mark or an exclamation mark. Especially on the network adapters. That means if you had the network drivers working before, then they are corrupt or they are not there at all.

Here is the solution..
visit acer.com and go to their downloads and support tab, you will be abel to see the model of your computer and you can download the wireless drivers that are compatible with your laptop.

Can't connect to wifi. Wifi is visible. The Wifi functions in other netbooks and laptops.


If you see it, you should be able to click on it. Make sure you have the right password, if it asks for one.
If you are unable to connect even if you have the right password, then maybe you connected earlier to that network and something went wrong and some settings are meesed up. We will have to remove these settings, then you can add that network again.
Not sure what operating sytem you have, so I will advise you for both xp and 7 (vista is similar to 7)
XP: http://www.tp-link.com/support/showfaq.asp?id=186
7:
This is the way to do it:
1) Go to Start and click on Control Panel.
2) Proceed to click View network status and tasks in Control Panel window.
3) Network and Sharing Center window will appear, proceed to click Manage wireless networks on left panel.
manage-wireless-networks-win7.jpg4) Manage Wireless Networks window will appear, and here you can see all available wireless network connection profiles. Select the profile , click on Remove to delete the selected profile. That's it!

Then go and view all available networks around, and try to connect again.

I can t to conect my lenovo s103 wi fi


Hi elyflorin200,
I see that you have the s10-3 Netbook and that you wants to connect using Wifi.
  • On your Netbook make sure that the wireless switch on the side is switched on first.
  • On the lower right hand side you should see a wireless icon that looks like a signal bar indicating that your wireless is on and that it detects Networks in the area.
  • Point your mouse cursor on the signal bar on the lower right it should say Networks are detected or connect to a network.
  • If you do not see the signal bars then the wireless may still be OFF on your Netbook.
  • Try and Press FN+F5 the same time you should see a windows that will pop up saying Networks or it should say Wireless device or the name of your of your wireless card, check if the wireless is enable or turned on under current status.
  • If your S10-3 detects Networks click on you Routers name to be able to connect wireless it will prompt you for a security if in case your Router has a Network key or Security key you will need to type that in in order to get internet from he Router if ever you enter the incorrect Network/Security key i will give you an error.
  • If ever you get connected it will prompt you if you want to save the Network and if you want to connect Automatically put a check on Connect automatically so that every time you turn you S10-3 ON it will detect the wireless signal in your home.
For further information regarding you s10-3 you can to this link below http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/UserGuide/Guide_list.aspx?CategoryID=686287
I hope that this will be helpful regarding you question.
Have a nice day.
