Question about Sylvania G-Netbook

1 Answer

I got a new Sylvania netbook and for some reason it won't connect completely to the internet. We have an open network and sometimes it won't connect at all, but when it does, it won't let me open certain pages or log in to anything. Why?

Maybe you hadn't fully set it up.

Try checking the following to see if any of these steps were missed.

On a "hooked up" computer, Google "digital gadgets.com". There find "Sylvania Products". Then click on "7 inch netbook support" and follow directions inputing to the 7" netbook as you go.

For item # 4, you find your "hot spot" name (on the 7" netbook) and click "connect".


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 (on the 7" netbook) and then click "OK".

Next (on the 7" netbook) 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 there. A regular universal mouse helps-just plug it into a USB port. I'm doing internet, movies, YouTube, word processing,etc like everything and I think a lot of people have way under-rated this fun little machine!

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.

We have new netbook and we are connect to a wireless internet but my netbook will not connect to the internet.


First, on the left side of the main screen, you will see an icon that says "WI-FI Power". That's the switch to turn it on. When you click it, a little box will appear that says "turn on" when it's off and "turn off" when it's on.

But maybe you hadn't fully set machine up yet.

Try checking the following to see if any of these steps were missed.

On a "hooked up" computer, Google "digital gadgets.com". There find "Sylvania Products". Then click on "7 inch netbook support" and follow directions inputing to the 7" netbook as you go.

For item # 4, you find your "hot spot" name (on the 7" netbook) and click "connect".


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 key" fill that in (on the 7" netbook) and then click "OK".

"Windows CE".

I selected "default" and was off and running.

I recieved a Sylvania 7"


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

You can take the SYNET07526 out to a McDonalds, they have a open wirless network that does not require a password and it will link up allowing you to surf the internet.

You could also ride around neighborhoods and see if you can pick up any networks that are not protected. This is refered to as War Driving.

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 yahoo.com"

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

Bought daughter a 7" Sylvania netbook for X-mas,


See: http://digitalgadgets.com/netbooks/support-7in-netbook.htm for a detail of how to connect. If that does not work then see my how to at: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7350901-fix_synet07526_wifi_flashing

You may also see:


Wait for the little computer icon in the lower right corner to show two radiating side waves with a red X under the icon. The red X indicates that the WiFi has not connected. double click on the Computer icon and a window opens up with RT28701 as the header, with all zeros in the fields.Click on the tab Wireless Information. and a new window opens up. Look for the name of your home wireless network, and double click on that name. another window will open up called Network Properties and you will see some entries, with the name of your network as the SSID. go down to the key box that says The key is provided automatically, and uncheck that box. At the long box that says Network Key type in your code for the network key. This code was assigned when your network was set up to prevent someone else from accessing your network. When you finish, check the box The key is provided automatically and from then on your machine will connect automatically because it will remember your key.

from another computer, go to the routers configuration screen and make sure the status shows that it is connected to the internet. Also the routers internal LanIP address must be 192.168.1.1 for the netbook to work.

Can't go online. Help?


If you are speaking about the SYNET07526, You probably need to reset your WiFi router and choose a new password as the netbook for some reason will not access your existing password. I know this as I spent a couple of hours trying to access my network, but could not until I reset my router and chose a new password. Then the netbook found the connection and I had to enter the new password into the screen. I think the netbook is optimized for an open network, until you force the issue by resetting your router.
