Re: windows ce networking

The Mobilepro 780 does not have built-in wireless capabilities, but does have a full PCMCIA (PC Card) slot on the right side.

Your WPC11 is a commonly paired card with the MP7X0 (780,790, etc) series because it has Windows CE drivers easily available.

Other cards may be usable, but they must have drivers that are compatible with Windows CE 2.11 (on the 780) or whatever version is running (or possibly what os, if another was added, such as Linux ) AND run on a MIPS processor.

Re: windows ce networking

Well your going to have to check whether your device has inbuilt wireless capability (refer to manual). If it doesnt there are various expansion slot solutions like SD and Compact flash wireless cards.

Are you using the NEC Mobilepro 900c drivers? I'm sure the drivers are different. YOu can find the XP drivers here: http://hpcmonex.net/nec900/files/soft/nec/activesyncusb.zip In addition, you should make sure that you have Activesync 3.8 or older. You can find it here: http://www.hpcfactor.com/ftp-root/software/microsoft/activesync/activesync-38/MSASYNC.EXE

Windows ce and memory cards


MobliePro 780 can use up to 32mb of memory and not 16mb but but you can't get any higher cause its limited by Windows CE Memory Map. If nec will offer an upgrade for windows CE3 or higher problem could be solved.
