If your trying to get on the internet with a wireless connection.and running WINDOWS(many problems with LINUX), .and I am assuming you DO have a wireless router all set up and configured to broadcast the signal (not hidden) ....first we have to determine if the problem is at the router or at the laptop AND at what point its getting stuck ... so first try this

try resetting the router (unplug for a few minutes) try --be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the netbook---try---go to CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS--right click oin your wifi card and choose properties--highlight INTERNET PROTOCOL and choose properties and be sure "OPTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" is checked--Does the laptop "SEE" the router?
You will need your SSID to logon to the router(internet)

Hello. I have the 7 inch Sylvania netbook and the WiFi internet is not working. I've connected it to my home WiFi internet and it has good signal and everything but when i click on Internet Explorer it...


Google "digital gadgets.com". There find "Sylvania Products". Then click on "7 inch netbook support" and follow directions.
For item # 5, you may have to call your Internet Service Provider (Charter, AT&T or whoever you pay for your internet in order to get your "network keys" fill that in and then click "OK".

Next be sure you go to "Start", "Settings", "Control Panel", "Internet Options", "General" and complete "user agent (requires browser restart" by selecting:
"Default (same as windows XP)" or
"Same As Pocket PC" or
"Windows CE".

I selected "default" and was off and running.

Although this isn't a "lap-top" it is a really neat little machine and does a lot of stuff almost like one. It should be great for travel! It is a little slow and has small memory, but it's inexpensive and usb/sd ports are onboard. A regular universal mouse helps-just plug it into a USB port. I'm doing internet, movies, word processing,etc like everything and I think a lot of people are way under-rating this fun little machine! -DKA-

I can connect to my wireless modem but I am still unable to open internet explorer, any suggestions?


internet explorer not opening has nothing to do with your connection. if IE is not opening at all you may have corrupt or missing files. need more details of your system OS and IE version.

You have to enable the WIFI button on the desk top, when you click on it it will show a power on button. when you click on that button it will turn to off, ready to turn off when you click it.

The machine will then hunt for a network within range and connect. Look for a small icon down in the right corner of the tray and see if you see a small computer screen with two radiating waves. this means that the machine has found a network and is connected. If you see a red X beside that icon instead of the radiating waves, it means you do not have a connection, If you have a connection then you can use the Internet explorer to go to a place on the internet.

The WiFi software that is embedded into the OS does not work very well. Fortunately digitalgadget.com has a download that somewhat fixes this problem fairly well. The new download is not totally goof proof, but you can work with it.

Go to: http://www.digitalgadgets.com/netbooks/update.html and download the indicated update. You can copy it to a thumb drive and connect the thumb drive to your Sylvania , find it under My Computer and then copy it to your
desktop and run it from there.

Trying to get my sylvania 7 inch netbook to bring up the internet, but it keeps saying to verify the baud rate settings


I used a router and adjusted the same conf. for both the router and the net book. All you need to do is to match both. I also know that you need to activate the wi fi by pressing the fn f9 buttons at the sometime. Try to log on and if it says connected but you are not able to use the net go to internet options and type yahoo.com or goggle.com. If you still not able to connect shut down and log on again. It works. Hope this helps Mrs.Mo
