If this is a Sylvania SYNET07526 net book, then flip the book over and finda small hole 1in from the diagonal right lower corner of the data plate. Put the end of a tooth pick in the small hole and lightly pres down on the micro switch and hold for about ten seconds. Do this with the AC power engaged. This should re-set the machine back to factory specifications. If you have to reload the WiFi Network Key Code, follow the directions below.

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


Additional Information


When I try to sign on with the red X showing, I get "The page cannot be displayed If I then double click on the icon down in the right corner I elucidated above, RT28701 opens up to "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) with all zeros in the IP address field, and Subnet Mask, with no entries in the default gateway. That is a clue to me that the auto sign on has not found a viable network or needs something else. If I then click on Wireless Information tab, The list of available networks appear in the box. The machine keeps trying to associate my previous entered name site with my prefered site and tells me the signal is good, but it cannot link up. This is a signal to me that it has lost my Network Key or that the software has failed or both. I then click on advance and delete my prefered network and hit OK, this will force the software to ask me for my network again, and notice that the prefered is missing. I click on the name of my network again and then hit connect., then the Wireless Network properties window opens up and I can insert my Network Key again after I uncheck the "The key is provided automatically" box. I enter the key and hit the OK button. I still do not get a connection, so I reboot the machine, and wait for about 30 seconds and the machine synchs up because the little RED X under the icon has disappeared. Now the machine will hook to the internet as long as I want to, but sometimes when I turn the machine on it will not synch, so I go through the above sequence again. The secret is once you have 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

I have a EPC mini netbook and it says I have a wireless connection, but it wont open a webpage? Whats the problem? It has internet explorer 6


That just means you have a connection to your router but the routers not connected to the internet. It sounds like your username and password settings in your router are not set inside the wireless router. If you plug your netbook into the router with a network cable and see if you can get internet this will prove whether its what im saying or not. To connect to your router open internet explorer and type in the address bar 192.168.0.1 with most routers and once connected check all your details. Most internet providers will help you with this for free if youre not sure. Cheers and please vote

Have inherited Acer Aspire one netbook. It says that it is now wireless connected but when i press browser nothing happens. Should this have something like internet explorer like my normal computer.


The Acer Aspire One comes with an edition of Windows 7 pre-installed. If that is the current operating system that it has now, then you should have Internet Explorer; it comes with every recent edition of Windows, and is very difficult to uninstall. To see if you have Internet Explorer (with Windows 7), open windows explorer and navigate to: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\" If you do not see "Program Files (x86)", then look for just "Program Files". There should be an application called "iexplore.exe" Double click on that, and see if it opens.

I have a samsung netbook and there must be a short somewhere. it is getting worse. my screen goes completely white. if i fiddle with opening and closing a bit, it pops back up. if i take the power cord...


Hi,

The symptoms you describe sounds typically like the interface cable between the netbook & the screen has been damaged due to opening & closing the laptop numerous times.

There is unfortunately no quick fix if this is the problem. You will have to take your netbook in to a repair shop in order to replace the cable.

Best wishes,
Graeme

The first step in installing Adobe Flash is select operating system, then version, and I don't know what to specify for the Sylvania Netbook. Help?


Hi

if you go to

start
Highlight computer but dont open it
then right click it and go to properties
it should open a box showing you the system properties of your laptop
and about have way down it will tell you if you are running a 32-bit or a 64-bit system
then when you choose the adobe flash choose the one that is for your system 32 or 64

good luck


But if you are running a 64 bit system on windows 7 i dont think flash will work in 64-bit internet explorer

so you will have to go to start programes and internet explorer ( Not internet explorer 64 )

and use that one

good luck

How do I get a cd rom to download to my computer from my GR-D290 camcord


Remove the CD disc from the camcorder and put in the CD drive on the computer. A windows may open automatically to show you the conmtents of the CD.

If it does not open automatically:
1. Use Windows explorer ... open "My Computer"
2. The CD will probably be listed as Drive D:"
3. Double-click (open) the Drive and each folder that appears on the drive.
4. The viseos will be listed...
5. you can copy (or "drag") these to a folder or your desktop.

Please reply with a comment if you need more information about this...
