I liked the fact that the ones he had found work swimmingly for him but a link to where he found them would have been off great help. $@!#$^Q@$##Q@^

Other than that I really like the review of the g netbook. It was the best review I have ever read on the Sylvania G Netbook.

There is also a huge heatsink thing on top of the wireless module. I removed the wireless module and plugged it to the outer USB. I observed, it is running very hot. I cannot touch it. RTL8187 is a good chip but board implementation of that module has the problem. I think antenna is not powerful enough because of that they increased the transmission power. Anyway I removed the module and drilled a hole to the right of the netbook and pulled out the internal USB connector. Now it has 3 USB connectors and I can connect any other wireless device whenever I want. I am currently using it as a wireless router and it is running gentoo (took 1 week to compile :)))

I was hoping there were some better drivers for the hardware, but I read that major tweaking is involved. BUMMER!!

Well, off to the hacking room to see if I can fix the wireless….

Do I have to do something with the bios to get this to work?
