Try following the suggestions below

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

From google homepage type in anysite and then says weboage cant be displayed


Check first if you have internet connection..page cannot be displayed may cause computer is not connected to the internet. If you are using Wifi connection, check the wifi switch of the laptop if it is turned on..You may try also to connect the computer using a LAN cable first and check if you will be getting the same problem..

This sounds like it is related to software such as a firewall, anti-virus, or perhaps a router configuration. Try to configure these if you have them.

Everytime i try to connect to the internet it says This webpage is not available


You need to confirm you are actually connected to the internet next. In the Wifi menu that you get to by double clicking the "pc" on the task bar you will see 3 tabs. If the first tab does not have all the IP, sub-net and default gateway filled in with legal numbers then you are not connected. Furthermore if you have an "IP Address:" that starts with 169.xxx.xxx.xxx then you are not connected to the internet.

If your Wifi setup includes a security phrase then under the wireless information tab it will take the following steps: "associating with.....", then "authenticating with...." then "connected to...."

The easiest way to tell if the problem is within a Sylvania Netbook running Win CE 6 is to take it to a McDonalds or other non-secure wifi location and see if it connects.

If it connects there but doesn't connect at "home" then your problem is between the netbook and your home setup not purely a Wifi not working issue.

There is a Wifi driver update available at the www.digitalgadgets.com website as well as the Sylvania Netbook Yahoo group. There are some additional troubleshooting steps at the Yahoo group.

My netbook will not go online I have tried my home wi fi and 2 diffrent public wifi


Hi,
try to do the below troubleshooting :
1) Boot up your netbook. 2) Login to windows. wait until windows finish loading. 3) Make suer your WiFi is enable. Search for the button of keyboard shortcut like 'fn' + 'f2' (wifi symbol). 4) Search for wifi network nearby. 5) connect to one of them. 6) Usually, public enable wifi is using a DHCP setup. Go to you wifi adapter setup page and make sure it's already on DHCP mode. 7) You should be able to connect to the wifi network (public DHCP enable) by now. 8) If you still can't connect to the wifi, means its not a public DHCP enable network or you got a wifi adapter problem.
Good luck ;)

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.

My sylvania notebook keeps displaying baud rate setting error which is enabling me to connect.


If you are getting the error code concerning the baud rate.. You need to go into my computer, click on control panel, go into network and connections and delete my connection. This will take care of the error message then you can continue to connect your device to wifi.

Hope this helps
