Question about Sylvania G-Netbook

1 Answer

Like everyone else I can not get my Sylvania 7" Netbook connected to my wireless router. It works with my husbands laptop and my grandaughters laptop but not my netbook. I hooked it up direct (wired) and got on the internet fine but not wireless. What seems to be the problem?

Digitalgadgets at 888-571-0866 will be your next step. I eventually got a call back 3 days after i contacted them but was unable to connect wirelessly to my home system or free wi-fi,after an hour on the phone. ( on two netbooks from cvs.). I am convinced it is a wireless circuit/card problem, or software problem, or receiver lack of sensitivity. I suspect Sylvania is well aware of this but has no economical solution for replacing defective units so they are blaming their slow response on high order volume. There's more problems but no internet is #1.

To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router's wireless settings configured and also the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

It is looking for the password that you set your router to or network key.

couple of ways. You can reset your router, then it will default to factory settings and then it will delete your password and open itself up to not needing a password to get on your network. However, anyone can connect to your network, so you will have to enter into your networks menus and reset a password to prevent this, then set that password on all of the computers on the network now. You generally access your set up menu by typing your server IP address into your browser address bar, which is ususlly http://192.168.1.1

This is not all conclusive as some routers have other access methods, but the majority use the above. It will also require a User and a password and the default is usually admin and password or password1 for the default. If however, you have set a password then you definitely have to reset.

Reset is usually a small button , some recessed in a small hole that requires a tooth pick or un-bent paper clip to push into the hole and hold for 15 seconds with the power on the router. Sometimes turning the power off of the router for 2-5 minutes will cause it to reset.

You can also force the laptop(or any client of that server) that you are using and is connected to the internet to give you the english translation of the password. Click on your WiFi icon down in the right corner, A window opens,right click on the name of your network that is connected, click on properties, click on "show charcters." The network key(your password) will be revealed

Yes how you connect to the internet with your sylvania 7" netbook what programs you use to connect to the internet


Make sure your DHCP routers LanIP is setup as 192.168.1.1(nothing else will work). This is needed for wireless or wired access. On the Sylvania netbook press fn-F9 keys to turn on the wireless access. click and launch the wireless icon on the bottom of the screen and choose your wireless network from the information tab and click connect. Look at the connection status below the wireless list.
