I am going to repeat the solution that I posted to others.

The SYNET07526 apparently has a problem accessing a network with an existing network security key. My solution after a couple of hours was to reset my router and choose a new security key after first renaming the network. This gave me a clean slate for the netbook to cycle to. It worked, and the netbook hooks up to my network without a problem. I had to re-establish my laptops security key using the new one I just reset which was easy for my laptop. now both the netbook and the laptop use the same key.
Note that you have to turn the netbook's wireless card on each time you use it, as this is a battery saver feature. Not so with most laptops as the card turns on automatically.

We bought this sylvania 7"


This sounds like it is related to software such as a firewall, anti-virus, or perhaps a router configuration. Try to configure these if you have them.

I bought the sylvania 7 in netbook...All I want to do is read my email and look at and update facebook...I connect with no problem....It takes from 4 to 6 mins every time I click the mouse to get to...


No, the problem is the default number of simultaneous web server connections is set to either 2 or 4. The fix is increase those connections. You can do this by locating the registry changes and running "regedit" adding them and re-booting. Or you can locate a file I uploaded yesterday called "toms-found-tweaks.zip" at the Yahoo group for the Sylvania Netbook's files download area and apply them as instructed by double clicking on each .reg file. Hang on to these fixes.

I got them from here: http://www.wpcentral.com/registry-edits-i-have-loved

The IE and UI changes appear to work, be reliable and don't crash my Sylvania Netbook.

I have a Sylvania 7"


In getting msg server cannot be found: Possible network (our network) could be down, the server at the site you are trying to reach could be down, or adjustments to your settings for the new network upgrade have not been made yet. You may also check the settings of your browser. If you are using IE you may go to Tools, Internet Options, Connections, Lan Settings and make sure NO boxes have check marks in them.

Try to ping the website by going to RUN, type CMD and click on OK, type in ping name of the website and enter. If error local host cannot be found there is something wrong either with your Internet settings or network adapter.

I received a sylvania 7 inch netbook for christmas and cannot get the internet to load. It shows that it is connected to the internet, but it says it cannot find the server


Hello, what are you trying to load? Apparently your unit acts like a mobile device and so doesn't work like a true fully-functioning pc;more a stripped-down version. Try using the mobile version of youtube, which is www.m.youtube.com
as that should work.
Also, it won't stream video from the internet, but should run mp3/4 video, presumably through the memory slot in the side.
Have a look at this interesting video review of the unit.

It says I am connected to the wireless with excellent connection and still it wont let me get on the internet it says cannot find server-This page cannot be displayed-DNS error. I bought three of these...


Mine had a default ip address for dns server of
192.168.20.1 which was not the address of my router.
When I went into the router and changed it to that number it connected and I am happily on the internet.
I have not tried it at a public hot spot.
