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

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.

I cannot get access to WIFI. It reports an error. I have never been able to access WIFI since day of purchase. I would like to use it the Netbook but I can't. At first it was asking for server,...


WIFI is wireless internet service. You can use WIFI on your netbook to get on the internet. You can also use a corded connection like an ethernet cable to accomplish the same thing.

In order to use WIFI, you need to access to the account that is providing it. There are many ways to get access to wireless internet service. Some places have "WIFI hotspots" and if you are in range your netbook can pick up the signal by clicking on the little button marked "wireless" (or look for the picture of the wireless antenna) to have it search and connect. Places that include wireless hotspots or free WIFI are Starbucks, and local colleges or Universities. You can purchase your own wireless internet service from any local provider like Version or Charter Cable. Make sure to ask for a DSL modem with a wireless connection built in when you order service. Your account name and password are listed on the bottom of the modem and/or router. If you are unsure of which ones to use, call your provider for more details.

Wireless hot spots usually do not require passwords. Just click the wireless button to pick up a signal on the front of your netbook and follow the prompts on the screen to connect.

I would suggest purchasing your own connection instead of tyring to find an unsecured (no password protection) network that belongs to a neighbor to try and use theirs. The cost is approx $ 25 - $ 30 per month. Check with your local telephone provider for the deals available in your area.

My acer aspire one wont connect to internet. it says it is connected to wireless, and i have wired it to modem but the problem still persists. please help.


Based on your description, the following is assumed.
1. The service to your Internet Service Provider is through a cable or DSL modem.
2. Internet service was initially set-up with your netbook directly connected to the modem.
3. A wireless router was since added and is using the direct wired connection to the modem.
4. The netbook is connected to the wireless access point being provided by the router.
5. The netbook says it is connected to the wireless access point but still no internet access.
The problem is likely due to the modem capturing the MAC address of the netbook when access to the internet servce was initially set up using the netbook directly connected to the modem and now the modem will only allow access with the netbook directly connected to it. You can check this out by reconnecting the netbook directly to the modem. It may be possible to "flush" the captured MAC by unplugging the AC power to the modem, waiting a few minutes and then powering back up with the router connected in place of the netbook. To make it easier, you may want connect your netbook directly to the router's LAN side to check if you now have internet access through the router. If you still don't have internet access, you will need to use your netbook to log onto the router to clone your netbook's MAC address for the router's WAN connection. The router's user guide/manual has directions on logging in and doing the MAC address clone. It will also have an explanation as to what is a MAC address.

Internet explorer opens and gives error Cannot find server. wireless network connection is available


The issue here would appear to be with the communications between the laptop and the server or wireless access point. Can you get other laptops to access the internet using your server?

Yes how you connect to the internet with your sylvania 7" netbook what programs you use to connect to the internet


Make sure your DHCP routers LanIP is setup as 192.168.1.1(nothing else will work). This is needed for wireless or wired access. On the Sylvania netbook press fn-F9 keys to turn on the wireless access. click and launch the wireless icon on the bottom of the screen and choose your wireless network from the information tab and click connect. Look at the connection status below the wireless list.

MY Acer netbook model KAV60 no longer responds to wifi


Look below your arrow keys, near the bottom edge of the computer. There's a wireless indicator there, and on the edge itself there is a switch. You might have turned it off accidentally.
Hope to have helped :)

Netgear MGT624: My netbook shows its connected to my router but


Re4place your Wireless Access code as set up with router control program. Often wireless access is denied when mistakes are made with this pass code. Just replace whatever code you have with another (simpler?) code or even going to "None" for Security. To try and establish comm through the router, if it succeeds with no security try again with perhaps WPA-[TKIP] coding.
