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.

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 (disconnect the power to it for a few minutes) next --be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the netbook---next---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)
follow this is a link to a troubleshooting flow-chart

If you continue to have problem..indicate at what point in the flowchart it is getting stuck

If this was helpful, please indicate so, if not -comment back so we can dig further to resolve this.

I received a sylvania 7 inch netbook for christmas and cannot get the internet to load. It shows that it is connected to the internet, but it says it cannot find the server

Hello, what are you trying to load? Apparently your unit acts like a mobile device and so doesn't work like a true fully-functioning pc;more a stripped-down version. Try using the mobile version of youtube, which is
as that should work.
Also, it won't stream video from the internet, but should run mp3/4 video, presumably through the memory slot in the side.
Have a look at this interesting video review of the unit.

Merry Christmas! I'm trying to connect to the internet on my Sylvania netbook and it keep saying "the page cannot be displayed" I don't understand why I'm not connected to the internet if my...

Hi there and Merry Christmas,

Are you connecting to a router? Yes, if it is wireless, you'll need to make sure that the router has internet connectivity. if other computers connected to the same router can connect with the internet then there's something wrong with your computer's network configuration. You can copy the network setting from a working computer connected to the same router such as the gateway IP address and proxy settings and use the same settings on your computer..

use the console to check for internet connectivity. Sometimes, virus may infiltrate browser internet connection so better check using RUN>CMD and type "ping"

Let me know if this helps.. I do hope it does.
