Question about Sylvania G-Netbook

2 Answers

I just purchased a Sylvania Netbook. Following the Quick Start Guide included in the package, I went to set up a WIFI connection. The first step is to "click the WIFI icon on the lower right side of the Windows CE desktop." Unfortunately, no WIFI icon is showing up. All the other icons in the illustration appear on the tool bar, but no WIFI icon. I have tried turning on the wireless card via both the "WIFI Power" icon and the F9 hot key, but neither makes any difference. Also, the Quick Start Guide references a "status indicator light" for WIFI power in the Wireless Network section, but there doesn't appear to be one anywhere on the Netbook, or is that particular indicator light referenced anywhere else in the documentation. How do I get the WIFI icon to show up so I can connect to a wireless network?

Should work. make sure the radio is on from either the desktop (not the task bar) or the f9 key. You might need to select the router connection and enter the pass key if locked.

SOURCE: I recently purchased a 7" sylvania notebook. The

Please try and follow the detail below.

It is looking for apassword (WiFi Network Key) You have to double click on the little computericon down in the right tool bar area, the one with the two side radiating arcs,and possibly has a small red X under it. The red X indicates that it is NOTconnected. When you double click on that icon a window called RT28701 opens up,then you click on Wireless Information tab, then you cursor down to the name ofyour WiFi and high light it and click the connect box. Then another windowopens up called Network Properties. Uncheck "The key is providedautomatically" box. This will allow you to type in your "NetworkKey", the password that protects your network from outsiders. This"KEY" was set up when you installed the router on your servercomputer. If this does not work at first, turn the machine over on it's backand using a toothpick, insert it into the little hole about an inch diagonallyfrom the right corner of the data plate, this will re-load a new copy ofeverything including the WiFi RT28701 driver. sometimes thisdriver gets confused. See my TIP at: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7350901-fix_synet07526_wifi_flashing AdditionalInformation When I try to signon with the red X showing, I get "The page cannot be displayed If I thendouble click on the icon down in the right corner I elucidated above, RT28701opens up to "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) with all zeros in the IP addressfield, and Subnet Mask, with no entries in the default gateway. That is a clueto me that the automatic sign on has not found a viable network, or needssomething else. If I then click on Wireless Information tab, the list ofavailable networks, appear in the box. The machine keeps trying to associate myprevious entered name site with my preferred site and tells me the signal isgood, but it cannot link up. This is a signal to me that it has lost my NetworkKey or that the softwarehas failed or both. I then click on advance and delete my preferred network andhit OK, this will force the software to ask me for my network again, and noticethat the preferred is missing. I click on the name of my network again and thenhit connect., then the Wireless Network properties window opens up and I caninsert my Network Key again after I uncheck the "The key is providedautomatically" box. I enter the key and hit the OK button. I still do notget a connection, so I reboot the machine, and wait for about 30 seconds andthe machine synchs up because the little RED X under the icon has disappeared.Now the machine will hook to the internet as long as I want to, but sometimeswhen I turn the machine on it will not synch, so I go through the abovesequence again. The secret is once you have entered your key and ask for themachine to synch up you have to reboot. Why? I do not exactly know, but Isuspect that the WiFi driver looses it You may also wantto look at the TIP http://www.fixya.com/support/r7679654-sylvania_syneto7526_wirless_keyboard To make your knowledge complete

Everytime i try to connect to the internet it says This webpage is not available


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.

What do i need to use my netbook wi fi, i also heard that you can use a wi fi phone with it


You will need a Wifi access point to connect your Sylvania Netbook using Win CE 6 to the internet. Some cellphones can act as "Wifi access points" but most cellphone network vendors will want you to pay $10USD a month to use that feature.

Free Wifi access points include McDonalds, your local public library, your church and other resturants. I have also found that all major interstate rest areas in IOWA have free wifi.

There are several lists of Free Wifi hotspots on the internet. I like this community effort listing: http://www.wififreespot.com/

The SN comes with a short wifi guide and there is a video as well as a step-by-step Wifi guide at www.digtialgadgets.com

Cam connect


Try connecting to Wifi at a public access/non-secure location. Use the quick start guide procedures or goto www.digitalgadgets.com where they have a step-by-step and even a video demonstration.

If you can connect at a non-secure Wifi location then there is a good chance you don't remember the pass-phrase exactly right on your home wifi. You will have to change the pass-phrase on your home router and then change all the systems using it.

Please give me step by step directions to get my netbook to hook up to hotel wi-fi. thank you


Please see the quick start guide that came with your Sylvania Netbook running Win CE 6. You will also find the same step-by-step directions at the www.digitalgadgets.com website. They also have a YouTube demo video.

Hint: double left click the "pc" with the )) that are red on the lower right task bar. Click the right tab, find the hotel wifi, select then click "connect" button if it prompts you for a "pass phrase" get it from the hotel front desk.

I purchased a sylvania 7"


Hello, I think you have to click a tab marked 'power on' , which then , confusingly, changes to 'power off'.
Take a look at this really good video review which may help.

I am looking for a manual for the Sylvania Netbook SYNET07526 that I just purchased at CVS. There is only a quickstart guide in the box.


The Quick Start Guide is the only documentation that you get with the SYNET07526. If you go to the site http://digitalgadgets.com/ that is listed in the QS manual you will find this to be true. There is not much else you can do to the machine. except turn it on and start up the WiFi connection. There is no available setup, since the CE operating system is embeded in a chip on the machine that you cannot change.

I have followed all the instructions on how to connect the wireless router to my Sylvania Netbook and I am still unable to access the internet, can you give me the solution to this problem.


Had the same problem with my Sylvania Netbook I purchased last week. Last night, I stopped by CVS that received a shipment early in the afternoon and purchased another. Powered on to wifi at first and it would not connect on internet. Clicked on little tv, pulled up my preferred connection and entered Network key. Shut down and restarted and it connected onto google!

My original Sylvania Netbook had the same settings in place and still would not connect - so I am returning it today for a refund - it was defective.
