You can't on the CE platform. I'd use Opera or stick with windows IE6

Your netbook doesn't run Windows XP, it uses a cheap version called Windows CE, which is more designed for phones. The reason that you can't install Firefox or Chrome is because Windows CE doesn't support programs designed for Windows XP, Vista, or 7. You can try installing Opera Mini by going to, but there no guarantee that it will work.

Observe that the computer is compartible with multimedia recognition. For example, internet explorer 8, firefox browsers are compartible to the most innovative computers least likely downloaded on prior version computers. Also the list of browsers listed to include flash players are only compartible with recent computers that perform complementerily.

My Sylvania Will Not Let Me Download Internet Explorer And Mozilla Which Is Preventing Me To Watch Youtube And Download OoVoO

This netbook is useless. We should tell a church that it says satan in some encryption code and let them roll over them all with a tank.

Allows me to connect to wi fi....but will not open the browser. NO internet at all.

Please go to internet options from Control Panel and reset the internet browser completely.
Check now.
Still not working ? Then if its an internet explorer 7 or 8 please uninstall it and the preinstalled i.e 6 might work for you.
And if u are using any other browser like google chrome etc. then please uninstall it from Control panel's list of installed programmes or updates & reinstall it back again.
Think this will work.

The Sylvania 7" G-Netbook PC uses Windows CE. The only way to install SOFTWARE (not spyware) on it, is downloading only software for Windows CE.

You can find software in internet using google: "windows ce download shareware"

I bought a sylvania netbook. I can not get it to connect to the internet or anything? Is the computer frozen. It reads that I have a connection to my dsl but I can not access internet explorer. please...

You have to use another computer to copy the download to a thumb drive. Once you have the RT2870.arm on your thumb drive, put the thumb drive in your Sylvania SYNET7526 USB port. Access your thumb drive through My Computer. You will see it as USB drive. Click on that drive and it will open up showing you your files. Right click on RT2870.arm, and copy. X out of that drive and get back to your desktop. Click on a blank spot. Click on paste. The RT2870.arm appears on your desktop. Click on that RT2870 and follow the directions. Be aware, That is the only way I could get a good copy of that update. I tried to download it using the Sylvania SNET5726, but I got a "That is not a valid CE file", so I used another computer and it worked every time. I suppose the Sylvania SNET7526 misses some of the data.

The WiFi software that is embeded into the OS does not work very well. Fortunately has a download that somewhat fixes this problem fairly well. The new download is not totally goof proof, but you can work with it.
Go to: and download the indicated update. You can copy it to a thumb drive and connect the thumb drive to your Sylvania , find it under My Computer and then copy it to your
desktop and run it from there.
