The browser supplied with CE is an old version and is not supported by many sites. You have probably experienced "This site does not support your version of IE, You must down load a more recent version in order to use the full services of our site." The problem is that CE doesn't have many versions and some sites do not support CE at all. I have a TIP at:

That tells how to re-flash your operating system, but the newer version is not much better. You are pretty much stuck with the software you have unless the manufacturer decides to offer a better upgrade.

Baud rate setting

There has been much written on the SYNET 07526. After playing with it for two months I have a few observations.
1. It is not a toy...It DOES WORK, but it is also temperamental! It's NOT an IPOD or other tablet and it is somewhat S-L-O-W. But it DOES WORK despite the impatience of some comments on this site or YouTube. And the price was very right - under $100!
2. Best solution is to download the Digital Gadgets OS Image from their website. Update exactly as directed onto a 1-2 GB SD Card in your MAIN computer (actually I bought a card reader/writer to do this - Do Not load the update to a USB drive - the netbook won't recognize it using that port. Extract the "Script" program from the download and send it to the SD Card. Turn off the computer, remove the SD card update. Place the SD card into the netbook while it is off and when you turn the netbook on the program will load automatically. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING UNTIL THE ENTIRE "SCRIPT" FILE IS INSTALLED ON THE NETBOOK.
Use the RT 28701 Connection network. It should be defaulted already.
You may also notice "Google" is now the default I.S.P. Try first entering a "subject" into Google Search first( e.g. "cats" or "dogs" - rather than entering an actual website. Some sites with a lot of graphics will be slow or won't load and you'll get a "can't open page" message)3. If you check you will also see the dial up BAUD RATE defaults to 19,200 baud. I kept this setting and it was fine.This is the dial speed, if you go through modems that are encrypted and need authentication. RT 28701 uses wi-fi directly and should connect to local "host" wi-fi sites.
4. Look for "Disabled" encryption and "Open" authentication when configuring the netbook or it may not connect to the wi-fi host without a password.
5. There is a difference between "associating with..." and "connected to..." If you're not "conected" you're just browsing available access points in the area that your wi-fi receiver is scanning. Click on your "preferred" site and hit "connect" when you've got a good signal. If you get bumped off, it's because your netbook configuration is not compatible with the wi-fi host.
6. Try different locations such as near hotels, McD's, Starbucks, etc. where the wi-fi is open to guests and try your netbook there. If you get on the web via Google your netbook is fine.

I had a plroblem with different site nd been told to delete my cashe and cookies, and I did it. and after that I cannot now play any you tube video! please help me :(

Videos on YouTube are streamed through Adobe Flash player. If you're having trouble playing videos on YouTube, we suggest you install the latest version of the Flash player.

Please follow these steps to upgrade to the most recent version of Adobe's Flash Player:
  1. Before installing Adobe Flash, you will need to first uninstall any older versions you currently have running on your computer. To do so, download Adobe's official uninstaller here. Make sure to select your correct operating system, and then "Uninstall Flash."
  2. Now that you've uninstalled the older version of Flash, follow Adobe's instructions for reinstalling the most recent version. The download option is on the right-hand side of the page.
  3. Once you've downloaded the file, please exit your browser first, and then install the upgraded version of Flash to you're computer.
  4. Finally, open your browser again and go to YouTube. You should now be able so successfully watch videos!

If the instructions above don't resolve the issue, please also try the following:
  1. Temporarily disable popup blocking software installed on your computer to test.
  2. Allow as a trusted site in your Firewall software.
  3. Ensure other applications like Quicktime, iTunes, Real Player, or Windows Media Player aren't set as the default streaming application, as this might affect the video player.
  4. Make sure your computer is set up properly for Flash by checking out Adobe's Advanced Troubleshooter here.

I'm have a lot of trouble with my netbook. Icann't download Adobe flash player nor can I acess help on this pc . I'm begining to feel I wasted my time an money on it .

On most PCs, pressing the F1 key (it is at the top left of your keyboard) will access help. Since you never said what netbook (manufacturer and model) you had, I can't be sure that it is F1 but you can try it anyways. If it doesn't work, read the user guide that came with your netbook or add a comment to your problem with your netbook's manufacturer and model name & number so that I can then research how to access help for your netbook and provide you with an answer on Fixya.

Your problems downloading Adobe flash player can be due to many reasons. The best way to solve this is to use Adobe's web site Troubleshoot Flash Player installation. Click on the following...

I dont have a place to put the cd for my webcam on my netbook and i dont want to download anything but i need it to work

There are three choices:

1. Use another computer to copy the CD contents onto a USB flash drive, then install from the flash drive.

2. Borrow an external USB CD drive, connect it to your machine, and load from the CD.

3. Download the driver from the Logitech web site.

Hope that's helpful.

What you have to do is reinstall the password secure software that was on your pen drive so you can access your secure files again.

You can find the applications for Imation's flash drives here:

Just download it, then run the file and make sure you have the drive plugged into the computer.

Make sure you download the software for the flash drive you have, since there are different models on that web site. For additional information contact Imation at 1-800-351-8186 or email them to

No drivers came with the 4GB HP usb flash drive v125w I just purchased. I can not find them on HP web site. Need for Win Xp. Help

Windows 98 has no support for newer USB flash-drives.

Windows XP has full support for newer USB flash-drives -- if it cannot find the driver on your 'C:' disk, it will access the Internet to download the drivers from Microsoft's web-site, automatically.

If you can try Stephan's solution first.
If that does not work try looking at the actual manufacturer's web site for your wireless card. They may have them out before Asus does.
