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 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 key" 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.

Are you trying to connect to an encrypted Wi-Fi? If so, a 'pass phrase' needs to be entered before being able to connect to that specific wireless network. Have you set up your Wi-Fi adapter to obtain an IP address automatically? Have you set up your Wi-Fi adapter to obtain a DNS server automatically?

DNS Error Fix
In most cases, a DNS error just means that the computer is facing connectivity problems. This could be happening for a variety of reasons, especially if you are connecting to the Internet via a wireless connection. Since DNS transforms the website URL into a numerical IP address, without the DNS functioning properly, the Internet connection will be quite useless. There are a few solutions to this problem though, and none of them are too complicated in nature.

  • Locate the networking icon on your taskbar (or visit the networking tab from your 'Start' menu), and right click on it. Now select the 'Repair' option. This should be able to fix elementary DNS errors.
  • Go to the 'Start' menu and select the 'Run' option. Now type 'ipconfig/release' and hit 'OK'. This will release your old IP address. Now you need to type 'ipconfig/renew' and hit 'OK' in order to renew your current IP address.
  • You even have the option of entering your own DNS settings. If you are using a local wireless connection, you will be informed about the preferred DNS and the alternate DNS. You can alter this setting by going to the 'Properties' of your network connection.
  • You must also check if all the cables and wires are connected properly. If nothing works, then try using a different machine with the same connection.

Tip

Tip on speeding up your Internet connection.


I have high speed and my Internet was sluggish at best for months. I tried everything including the following Resetting my cable modem, replacing my cable modem with a newer model. Resetting my Wi-Fi router, replacing my Wi-Fi router. Reinstalling my operating system. Updating my network drivers. Scanning for Malwere and viruses daily. I tried different browers including Firefox, Chrome and others. I updated Internet Explorer with all the latest patches.

I have determine that the DNS server was the issue. The DNS server is a translator, it allows us to just type in the website name like www.microsoft.com instead of remembering numbers like 216.239.51.99. I fix mine by using Open DNS instead of my internet provider DNS Server.

Here is how to fix it. Go to control panel, then click on your local area connection icon. Click on properties and then double click on TCP/IP Internet Protocol. Leave the top settings alone, which will still obtain the IP address automatically. Type in the Open DNS Preferred DNS server settings of 24.25.5.60. Type in the Open DNS Alternate DNS server settings of 24.25.5.61. Reboot your PC and enjoy the speed.

Eror 105 wifi


Error 105 is one of the most commonly faced errors by a lot of users everyday who are using Google chrome
Error 105 is a DNS resolution error. - Which means when you enter the URL of the website and hit enter in Google chrome, it tries to resolve the IP address of the website using a protocol called DNS (Domain Name System). If chrome is unable to reach the DNS server, the name resolution fails and you get the error 105.
Solution:
Once you have verified from your internet service provider that there is no problem on their end, follow the step by step instructions below.
We are simply going to add a manual DNS address in Windows so that chrome is able to resolve DNS queries.
1) Press [Windows Key + R] to open the "RUN Dialog"
Alternatively, you can also click on the start menu, type run in the search bar, and you will have the RUN Program.
Once you have the RUN box, type in ncpa.cpl and click OK - This would work for all Windows operating systems including Windows Xp, Vista and 7.
2) Next, Choose the correct network adapter (from the icons)
If you are connecting to the internet using an Ethernet cable, then most likely you are using a desktop computer. Right-Click "Local Area Connection" and click "Properties"
If you are connecting to the internet using a Wi-Fi Connection, then Right-Click on "Wireless Network Connection" and click properties
3) After you open the properties window, select "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" and click "Properties"
4) Usually you would be having both the options set to "Automatic"
In the section below, select the "Use the following DNS Server Addresses" and enter the following values Preferred DNS Server - 8.8.4.4
Alternate DNS Server - 8.8.8.8
and click "OK", then click "CLOSE"
You must now test your new configuration by browsing a website - you can also try and browse the website you were trying to get to when you got the error 105.

Go to the PS3 Network Setup, choose "Manual".
Leave the option for DHCP under "automatic", and under DNS servers, manually add:

208.67.222.222 or/and
208.67.220.220


These are the IP addresses for the Open DNS project and now your PS3 will be able to resolve internet addresses.

Got Acer M900. Can connect to my LinkSys WRT54GP2 Router OK. But when I try to D/L webpages, IE just keeps saying DNS error. Router is set to DHCP, and M900 gets IP address OK, but no DNS. When I try...


You see, I own this phone and Wi-Fi, in general, works fine. Some thoughts, though: go to 'Start > Settings > Connections tab > Wi-Fi > Network Adapters tab', and make sure that 'My network card connects to:' dropdown menu is set to ''The Internet', and, on that same settings page, after clicking on 'Marvell SDIO8866 Wireless Card > IP Address tab'', make sure that 'User server-assigned IP address' checkbox is checked.
Hope it works for you.
Please, let me know if I can help you any further.
