Question about Sylvania G-Netbook
Probably the connection wizard asks for a password (or passphrase). You have to know this one in order to connect with the wi-fi. If the wireless router is at your place connect with an ethernet cable, log in at the router's settings page and at wireless - security section place the details you like. After this provide the same details at the laptop's wi-fi connection wizard.

It is looking for a password (WiFi Network Key) You have to double click on the little computer icon 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 NOT connected. 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 of your WiFi and high light it and click the connect box. Then another window opens up called Network Properties. Uncheck "The key is provided automatically" box. This will allow you to type in your "Network Key", the password that protects your network from outsiders. This "KEY" was set up when you installed the router on your server computer. If this does not work at first, turn the machine over on it's back and using a toothpick, insert it into the little hole about an inch diagonally from the right corner of the data plate, this will re-load a new copy of everything including the WiFi RT28701 driver.
sometimes this driver gets confused. See my TIP at: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7350901-fix_synet07526_wifi_flashing
You can take the SYNET07526 out to a McDonalds, they have a open wirless network that does not require a password and it will link up allowing you to surf the internet.
You could also ride around neighborhoods and see if you can pick up any networks that are not protected. This is refered to as War Driving.
