You are probably going to have to re-flash the system as part of the operating system is not loading or is missing. See mu TIP at: 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 its back andusing a toothpick, insert it into the little hole about an inch diagonally fromthe right corner of the data plate, this will re-load a new copy of everythingincluding the WiFi RT28701 driver. sometime thisdriver gets confused.

I tried pushing reset and it still wont do nothing please help me get the loading os image of his computer so he can use it for the first time


if you are talking about the reset image or factory restore, not working that means your image is also corrupted. he will use it for the first time? is it brand new? if it is I suggest you contact support for Sylvania maybe you can get a replacement unit, Out of the box unit should not act this way. since the only way is to reformat it.

L bought a Sylvania 7" Netbook as a gift for my


I would return it .. our Janitor has one, a gift from his dad.. He brought it up to me to setup for him.. If every thing would work, it would not be a big deal. I did at one point get it to connect to a wireless connection, but it would not communicate - would never get an address for a DNS server. Then at one point it would not turn on. After letting is set overnight it would start up but not a single program was on the device. I hit the reset button, nothing. I downloaded the latest and greatest OS update from the advertised web site.. unzipped it to an SD card.. tried to re-flash the unit - nothing.. Now I cannot recharge the batteries .. I can't wait to get rid of it. Most (maybe all) of the reviews and comments you read about this device are negative in one way or another.

I can get the Sylvania Netbook connected to my wireless network, but it will not load the web pages


The WiFi software that is embeded into the OS does not work very well. Fortunately digitalgadget.com 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: http://www.digitalgadgets.com/netbooks/update.html 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.
