Question about Sylvania G-Netbook
Posted by Anonymous on
Try following the below suggestions.
It is looking for apassword (WiFi Network Key) You have to double click on the little computericon 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 NOTconnected. 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 ofyour WiFi and high light it and click the connect box. Then another windowopens up called Network Properties. Uncheck "The key is providedautomatically" box. This will allow you to type in your "NetworkKey", the password that protects your network from outsiders. This"KEY" was set up when you installed the router on your servercomputer. If this does not work at first, turn the machine over on it's backand using a toothpick, insert it into the little hole about an inch diagonallyfrom the right corner of the data plate, this will re-load a new copy ofeverything including the WiFi RT28701 driver. sometimes thisdriver gets confused. See my TIP at: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7350901-fix_synet07526_wifi_flashing AdditionalInformation When I try to signon with the red X showing, I get "The page cannot be displayed If I thendouble click on the icon down in the right corner I elucidated above, RT28701opens up to "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) with all zeros in the IP addressfield, and Subnet Mask, with no entries in the default gateway. That is a clueto me that the auto sign on has not found a viable network or needs somethingelse. If I then click on Wireless Information tab, The list of availablenetworks appear in the box. The machine keeps trying to associate my previousentered name site with my prefered site and tells me the signal is good, but itcannot link up. This is a signal to me that it has lost my Network Key or thatthe software has failed or both. I then click on advance anddelete my prefered network and hit OK, this will force the software to ask mefor my network again, and notice that the prefered is missing. I click on thename of my network again and then hit connect., then the Wireless Networkproperties window opens up and I can insert my Network Key again after Iuncheck the "The key is provided automatically" box. I enter the keyand hit the OK button. I still do not get a connection, so I reboot themachine, and wait for about 30 seconds and the machine synchs up because thelittle RED X under the icon has disappeared. Now the machine will hook to theinternet as long as I want to, but sometimes when I turn the machine on it willnot synch, so I go through the above sequence again. The secret is once youhave entered your key and ask for the machine to synch up you have to reboot.Why? I do not exactly know, but I suspect that the WiFi driver looses it
