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.

HELP! I just received a Sylvania Wireless Internet notebook, model # SYNET7WID-Z. When I hit the power button the screen comes up, however, it displays only the My Computer and Recycle icons. Pushing


If it new there will be only a few icons on the desktop. In the bottom right of the desktop, the Tray Notification Area, you should see, You didn't supply your OS?, a Network Icon, click on it and open Available Wireless Networks. Your Sylvania Notebook is very light on support, I can't find a user manual.

Sylvania net book doesn't see available wireless


If it's not seeing wifi networks, more than likely, there is something wrong with the adapter. Try these steps:
1.) Look for a WIFI switch on the side or front of your laptop and make sure it is set to the ON position. 2.) Check Device Manager to make sure the driver is installed and working. If it's not, uninstall and reinstall. 3.) Go into Network Connections and make sure the Wireless Connection is set to Enable. 4.) If none of that works, perform a System Restore to a time when everything was working. 5.) If this doesn't work, you need a WIFI adapter replacement.
I hope this is helpful and thanks for using Fixya!

My new sylvania 7" netbook is not


Go to start menu. click on control panel. click on network connections. click on the computer icon that comes up, to the left with list options, one of the options should be search for wireless networks. Your Wifi card might have gotten switched off by accident. The computer icon I spoke of earlier would likely say "not connected" right click and a box will appear click "connect".Or if it is a wireless window, you will want to click scan for available networks. Hope this helps

I recieved a Sylvania 7"


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.

Bought daughter a 7" Sylvania netbook for X-mas,


See: http://digitalgadgets.com/netbooks/support-7in-netbook.htm for a detail of how to connect. If that does not work then see my how to at: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7350901-fix_synet07526_wifi_flashing

You may also see:


Wait for the little computer icon in the lower right corner to show two radiating side waves with a red X under the icon. The red X indicates that the WiFi has not connected. double click on the Computer icon and a window opens up with RT28701 as the header, with all zeros in the fields.Click on the tab Wireless Information. and a new window opens up. Look for the name of your home wireless network, and double click on that name. another window will open up called Network Properties and you will see some entries, with the name of your network as the SSID. go down to the key box that says The key is provided automatically, and uncheck that box. At the long box that says Network Key type in your code for the network key. This code was assigned when your network was set up to prevent someone else from accessing your network. When you finish, check the box The key is provided automatically and from then on your machine will connect automatically because it will remember your key.

How to install my router for wireless internet on my laptop.


1. Purchase a wireless router that fits your needs and price range.

2. Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection, which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again.

3. Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.

4. Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.

5. Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.

6. Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.

7. Click on "Properties."

8. Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.

9. Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section.

10. Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."

11. Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.

12. Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.

Thanks.
Have great day.

I bought the new sylvania 7" laptop. I am having problems.. We have connected to our wireless router however, we not get on the internet...


from another computer, go to the routers configuration screen and make sure the status shows that it is connected to the internet. Also the routers internal LanIP address must be 192.168.1.1 for the netbook to work.
