It is looking for a password (WiFi Network Key) You have to double click on the little computer icon down in the right tool bar area, the one with the two side radiating arcs, and possibly has a small red X under it. The red X indicates that it is NOT connected. When you double click on that icon a window called RT28701 opens up, then you click on Wireless Information tab, then you cursor down to the name of your WiFi and high light it and click the connect box. Then another window opens up called Network Properties. Uncheck "The key is provided automatically" box. This will allow you to type in your "Network Key", the password that protects your network from outsiders. This "KEY" was set up when you installed the router on your server computer. If this does not work at first, turn the machine over on it's back and using a toothpick, insert it into the little hole about an inch diagonally from the right corner of the data plate, this will re-load a new copy of everything including the WiFi RT28701 driver.
sometimes this driver gets confused. See my TIP at: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7350901-fix_synet07526_wifi_flashing

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) then --be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the netbook---then---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)
this is a link to a troubleshooting flow-chart

I cant get my wireless to work what can i do?


You can get a Manual at this site for free.
http://www.manualowl.com/p/Acer%20Computers/AOD250/Manual/82706

Make sure it is turned on.
Then Set up the configurations to look for known sources like a Wi-Fi Cafe.
Next is the hard part. You may have to check your firewall settings and even disable them. But read page 49ish of the manual.

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.

Hello there my name is Isaac and i bought the net book yestarday, i followed the steps to conect it to my home's wireless internet and i could get it conected, however, although the netbook says that is...


I have a similar problem when connecting to a new network with my laptop sometimes.
I would try two things:
-Restart your netbook and see if it will connect, sometimes that's all it needs
-"Reset" your wireless router. This does NOT mean hit the reset button to get rid of all settings, instead, just unplug it for ten seconds and plug it back in.

Hi bought an aspire one series netbook yesterday but cannot conect to my epson wireless printer can you help


I think you will find that the printer needs to "talk" to a router as does the laptop.
Install a wireless router and that should solve your problem.

I recently bought a netbook and the internet screen takes scrolling to see the entire page...how can I resize?


This is due to the small resolution on netbooks.
If you cant adjust the resolution in the display options, you can adjust the text size on the browser page.
click on view/text size and try make the text size smaller(internet explorer)
or in firefox its Tools/options/content tab and adjust font size
