Hi, i have a acrr aspire one, it was not mine and can't get it to get wi-fi or internet, am not very good at this neither, i realy need help.


First, loof for a special icon along the top row of your keyboard. One of those keys turns wi-fi on and off. You may need to hold down the "FN" key while pressing the wi-fi key. Make sure that you have selected the wi-fi "on" setting. Next, you can try going somewhere that has free wi-fi such as a Starbucks coffee bar or a restaurant. Open your internet browser (Internet Explorer has a large blue icon of the letter "e"). See if you get on the internet. If so, your wireless adapter is working OK. Now, most homes have wi-fi that is password protected. Click on the little bar graph icon in lower right corner of your screen and a list of available wi-fi networks should appear. Choose your home wi-fi and click on Connect. This will open a screen where you must enter the passwordor passphrase to gain access to the wi-fi. Good luck.

Cannot accress WiFi on Sylvania SYBET7WIC-BK-Z


The Sylvania Netbook is an inexpensive 7-inch device that is convenient for accessing the Internet on public or private Wi-Fi networks. It is not intended to replace a regular computer for daily tasks; its purpose is to provide a lightweight unit to access social media and perform small tasks. The netbook defaults to mobile websites, but it does a good job at what it is intended to do. Connecting to Wi-Fi networks with your Sylvania Netbook requires configuring the device properly.

Boot up the Sylvania Netbook by pushing the manual switch below the screen. Push the F9 key to turn on the Wi-Fi on the device. Select the little wireless icon in the toolbar at the bottom; it looks like a small computer. Choose the "Wireless Information" tab. This will show the online status of the device, as in whether it has connected to the Internet. If you have checked the box beside this option, this tab also notifies you when new networks are available. If the status shows that you have connected. You may need to add your wireless router manually in the setup. Do this by choosing, "Add New." Obtain the necessary setup information from your wireless Internet provider. If you have an encrypted network, you will need to fill in that information about your router. To configure the wireless setup further, click on the name of the wireless network. Click on "Advanced Settings" and adjust your connection choices; this tab determines the order of connection if there is more than one network available. Another important setting on this tab is the "Allow Windows to configure my wireless settings" option. Check that box. Click the "Internet Explorer" icon on the desktop. If you are online, you will pull up the Google homepage. Hope this helps.

Describe your 7" G-Netbook


There may be many reasons for this. Please check the following things one by one.

 

1. If you have another known good laptop then try it with your wi-fi router. See if the wi-fi router is able to connect to the internet

2. If you don't have another laptop then use an ethernet cable (RJ45) cable to connect to the wi-fi router. See if this helps.

3. While connected with the wi-fi router see if you can access the router. open any internet browser and type 192.168.0.0. you should get the router page. If you don't get then you have to configure the router first.

4. Check the internet settings of your browser. There will be "internet options" or similar in the menu of your browser. Click that. In the GUI you will get "connections" tab. Click that and select the proper wi-fi setup.

I have a strong wi-fi connection. But when trying to get on the internet, I keep getting cannot find server or DNS error internet explorer


DNS Error Fix
In most cases, a DNS error just means that the computer is facing connectivity problems. This could be happening for a variety of reasons, especially if you are connecting to the Internet via a wireless connection. Since DNS transforms the website URL into a numerical IP address, without the DNS functioning properly, the Internet connection will be quite useless. There are a few solutions to this problem though, and none of them are too complicated in nature.
  • Locate the networking icon on your taskbar (or visit the networking tab from your 'Start' menu), and right click on it. Now select the 'Repair' option. This should be able to fix elementary DNS errors.
  • Go to the 'Start' menu and select the 'Run' option. Now type 'ipconfig/release' and hit 'OK'. This will release your old IP address. Now you need to type 'ipconfig/renew' and hit 'OK' in order to renew your current IP address.
  • You even have the option of entering your own DNS settings. If you are using a local wireless connection, you will be informed about the preferred DNS and the alternate DNS. You can alter this setting by going to the 'Properties' of your network connection.
  • You must also check if all the cables and wires are connected properly. If nothing works, then try using a different machine with the same connection.

How do i connect to mcdonolds free wifi? what do i need?


To access the Wi-Fi services in a restaurant, you need a Wi-Fi enabled device, such as a laptop or PDA. If you are unsure whether your laptop or PDA is Wi-Fi enabled, click here to determine what hardware is required.

Our local service providers provide high-quality Wi-Fi service through several convenient connection options: on-line credit card payment, subscriptions, prepaid cards, or (sometimes) promotional coupons. If you have questions or need technical help, the Wi-Fi provider's customer support number should be handy in the restaurant.

Please note that currently there are no roaming capabilities between different countries, neither for customers nor McDonald's employees. You will have to connect separately with the respective Wi-Fi service provider.

Enjoy surfing and working in your local McDonald's!
