Wi-fi PDA connectivity problem

I've just got a Dell Axim X50v but it won't recognise my home wifi network. The network is based around a Belkin wireless router. My laptop works ok on network. Whe I run the WLAN utility on the PDA the site tab says that the network is recognised and the signal strength is good but when you look in the config tab there is no signal. Can anyone help. Thanks

Re: Wi-fi PDA connectivity problem

First, restart your pda by using your stylus and pressing the pin-hole sized button on the back of the PDA. There are sometimes a couple of different reasons why the pda wont recognize the network. Main Reason: Make sure you are at the home screen... Tap the wifi icon on the lower right corner of the pda. T hen make sure that the WLAN power is turned ON. Press the setting button. If you see your network in the list, tap on it. It should bring up a network configuration window. Make sure it says it connect to "The Internet". Then tap on the "Network Key" tab at the bottom of window. If you have no security settings on your belkin router, make sure Authentication is set to Open and Data Encryption is set to "Disabled". Then press "OK". That should Be it!!!! Let me know if this way doesnt work, or if something doesnt make sence!

I can connect to a wireless network but cannot send or receive messages via e-mail or go on line. I have tried every possible combinstion, nothing works.


If you haven't already done so, go to 'Start > Settings > Connections tab > Wi-Fi > Network Adapters tab', and make sure the 'My network card connects to:' dropdown menu is set to 'The Internet'.
Just my 2 cents...

REINSTALLATION OF DELL AXIM 50 PDA


You will need the disk that contains the firmware. The best thing to do is check on Amazon or ebay and upgrade to the highest firmware your device can accept. I belive the cost for a downloadable copy is between $5-10. If you do this make sure to follow the instructions for you can irrevocably render the device useless. :-(

I want to connect to my wireless Internet connection


If everything is working as it should. All you have to do is turn onyour Wi-Fi. You will then see a popup asking you if you would like toconnect.

You may need to add a compact flash wireless card:

Wi-Fi


You will not believe me but I have a similar problem. I have also Belkin router at home and wireless connection with my e800 works perfect. A few days ago I have tried to connect my PDA to wireless router of my best friend. His wireless network is protected like mine and after configuration of all settings I had no success. The funny thing is that PDA show me the status CONNECTED but I can not use the internet explorer. Like I said, at home with my Belkin it works properly. I can really not explain what the problem is.
