Has she got any connection at all to the Internet? If not there should be a button/switch somewhere on the netbook for Wi-Fi - check to see if it is turned ON.

Is this it ebay.co.uk 7" Mini Netbook Notebook Laptop WIFI Windows CE 2GB HD

Is she having problems with opening Internet Explorer or is the problem Internet Access - not being able to browse the internet. Is she having problem connecting to Router?

I note it has:

Networking/Data Link Protocol: Fast Ethernet, IEEE 802.11b,IEEE 802.11g

Wireless Connection: Wifi

Support WPA(Wifi Protected Access), AES / CCMP & WEP with TKIP securtiy

so her router needs to be able to work in multi mode b, g, and n. Most routers are now n which is the fastest, so might need to go into routers homepage and make sure it is enabled for all three modes.

Try changing the wifi channel.

If I understand your posts correctly the problem isn't internet explorer but the connection keeps dropping.

thank you all,got it working on wireless,but it is incredibly slow,takes about 4 minutes to load a web page even when wired to the router,how can i speed it up please,i have virgin 30mb broadband.

I doubt that you can. There is minimal RAM on the machine.

  Woolwell 17:08 09 Mar 2013

A thought - What happens with mobile site eg m.bbc.co.uk/news ?

  denis93 17:09 09 Mar 2013

is that normal on those machines 4 minutes to load a web page,if so why do people buy them,they are only fit for the bin.

I don't know if it is "normal". There is no manufacturer's name and I guess that it originated in China.
