Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

Connectivity/activesync and network issues

After a day of trying to install my wcf12 card (with the message "Unrecognizable card") , finally wcf12 was recognized by Axim and I was able to configure it. I think the problem was in the connection between the desktop and the Axim, somehow it got corrected during my multiple attempts and the drivers were loaded onto the Axim and the card was recognized. But I still have 2 problems. 1). There is no link between the Axim and my network. The link light on the Axim flashes continously and the network status utility shows no link and signal strength zero. I made sure it has the same SSID as the others on the network and the same encryption parameters (128 , same passphrase and the same key-automatic). Still no success . The network icon is there on Axim on the right bottom corner but it is red. 2). Connection/activesync is not consistent. Everytime I turn on/off my desktop ,sometimes it it connected, sometimes it is not.

Re: Connectivity/activesync and network issues

When using wireless lan with PPC, there are some experience shere with you. 1. You must do an "Reset" after the first time of installing wireless driver into your DELL AXIM. Otherwise, the driver would not work. 2. Microsoft Pocket PC 2002 only can allow one source to access the internet. It can't access internet via the USB and wireless at the same time. Thus, it is more batter way to leave your AXIM alone instead of insert on cradle when you try to access internet via wireless lan. 3. Some of the wireless's CE driver are based on StrongArm, 206MHz, not PXA250, 400MHz. It will got problem when the wireless try to initiate the link between base station and PPC. Try the following step: (i) Make sure you have been install the wireless driver. (ii) Remove your wireless from CF slot. (iii) start->setting->power->processor select "PowerSave" mode and apply it. (iv) Plug wireless into CF slot (v) If you can get an dynamic IP or access internet, you can repet step 3, but select "Auto" mode. Hoping these information can solve your problem.

Help with pre-owned iPAQ h5555


I have an IPAQ 5555 and although it's old it works pretty well. A few things to be aware of - you need to upgrade the ROM to the latest version. I don't have the links to the downloads but you should be able to find them on the HP site.

The problem that you will likely run into is Windows 7 and Activesync. I did everything via Activesync on Windwos XP - hooked up to my PC and installed software, sync'd appts and contacts etc... Activesync won't install on Windows 7 due to "incompatibilities"

I just installed "Windows Mobile Device Center" for Windows 7 and was able to get my device connected to my machine but syncing is not yet working.

As for WiFi access, from what I remember it's just a matter of turning on the networking via the Ipaq Wirelss app (icon is a little green square) and then turning on WLAN. That will hopefully cause two little left and right arrows to appear up in the top blue bar on the device's screen - the top left LED should also flash green to indicate that you're connected to your network. If the LED is flashing amber then your networking is on but your not connected to anything yet. If this is the case then the icon showing will likely be two arrows with an x. Touching this icon should open a small window called "Connectivity". On this window you can click on the "Settings" link, go to the "Advanced" Tab and rthen click on the "Networks" button at the bottom of the resulting screen.

You should now see a list of available networks - make sure your router is broadcasting Wireless G and not just N or you probably won't see it. If you do see your network's SSID then touch and hold the entry and select the "Conect" 'option on the resulting menu.

Starting out I would keep your wireless security turned off just to keep it simple. If you can connect this way then you can think about securinng your network. Once secured it's basically the same proceudre but you just have to enter your WEP key.

btw if installing some of the HP service packs etc.. for 5555 doesn't work using Windows 7 and the Mobile Device Center (it may .. I haven't tried) you may try loading Windows XP Mode on your Windows 7 box and then installing Activesync in the virtual environment and working in there just to get your device upgraded

Hope this helps. Good luck

Connect to internet?


This answer assumes that the reader is already using their SD slot and wish to use another way to connect to the internet. I'm going to show you how to connect a USB Bluetooth dongle using the Toshiba e350 USB host cable. After that you can choose to share a computer internet connection via ActiveSync/WMDC or use BT DUN and a wireless phone with existing internet plan.

Windows based PC software (only needed for ActiveSync based internet sharing):
ActiveSync or WMDC
Toshiba PC Bluetooth stack 7.10.04 (or latest version for your operating system, I'm using Windows 7)
PC Hardware:
Super Mini Bluetooth 2.0 Adapter Dongle (mine was VID 0A12 PID 0001 Broadcom BCM2045 "CSR" based)

WM2003 PPC software:
Zeno USB Host Drivers v6.0a
Toshiba PDA Bluetooth stack 4.01 (filename bltstk-401-en.zip)
WM2003 registry editor (TaskMgrv2.9_WM2003SE.zip is a free task manager and registry editor, very cool)
Opera Mobile 8.65 (optional)
WM2003 PPC Hardware:
Toshiba USB host cable
Super Mini Bluetooth 2.0 Adapter Dongle (mine was VID 0A12 PID 0001 Broadcom BCM2045 "CSR" based)
2 or 4Gig SD card (for e350)

I'm going to target a Windows 7 PC with USB Bluetooth adapter, Windows Mobile Device Cener (WMDC), and an already partnered and synced Toshiba e350/355. The reader should already have a 2Gig SD card in the e350; remember WM2003 doesn't support SDHC. Any software to be installed onto the device should be done through ActiveSync Add/Remove and should not be installed to the default internal memory, but instead to the SD card.

Let's start by loading the e350 software. Install the Zeno Host drivers, followed by the Toshiba 4.01 stack. There is a newer version of this stack but it didn't work for me, so find the older bltstk-401-en.zip. The registry editor is needed for ActiveSync internet connection sharing but optional for BlueTooth Dial-up Networking (BT DUN). I'd recommend installing Opera Mobile as well. Be sure to press the reset button on the back of the e350 when done. You may now connect the USB host cable with Bluetooth adapter.

On the Windows PC connect your Bluetooth adapter and install the Toshiba PC bluetooth stack. Power up the e350 and, after a short time, there should be a wireless icon in the lower right hand corner of the main window. Back to the Windows PC, double click the Bluetooth icon in the task tray and you should be prompted to create a new connection. After awhile it should recognize your Pocket PC. If at any time you are prompted to insert a password for secure connectivity, write down a number (preferably 8 or more digits) and type it in. It will probably ask on the Windows PC first but once you continue immediately check your e350 since it will now prompt for the same password. Once it has been entered in both devices they are now "paired".

Tap the wireless icon on Pocket PC then Bluetooth Settings. Tap the magnifying glass to search for connections, your PC should already be listed as a remote device. Tap and hold over the name of your PC in the upper portion of the window and select Update Service. At least one COM port should be listed in the lower window. Tap and hold over it's name, then tap connection registration.

On the Windows PC open WMDC and select Connection Settings. Change the "Allow connections to one of the following:" drop down to the COM port listed on your device and be sure it's checked. The other settings should be default.

On the Pocket PC tap ok to close Bluetooth settings then tap Start > Programs > Bluetooth Folder > Bluetooth Connection. This will initiate an ActiveSync session and, if everything has gone well, it should connect, perform a sync then immediately disconnect. I have a problem with the immediately disconnect part, that's where the registry editor comes in. Using your preferred registry editor locate the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TOSHIBA\Bluetooth\DeviceProperty\Mode\ActiveSync\AutoDisconnect key. It's default value shoule be 1 but we want to change it to 0 thereby preventing ActiveSync from disconnecting after it sucessfully syncs.

With that done you'll probably need to reset the e350 again. At this point, because ActiveSync is set to share the computer internet connection by default, the next time you connect you should have internet access. Open your preferred web browser and check. When you are done with the internet, tap Start > ActiveSync and the Stop button. In Windows 7 as long as I'm connected I can see the Pocket PC in Windows Explorer as if it were an external drive. This makes it very easy to copy files back and forth wirelessly. Initially I set up a bridged PAN connection but, to be honest, ActiveSync works much better all around.

For BT DUN you'll need a properly configured and enabled Cell Phone with bluetooth DUN capabilities. Simply make the phone "visible" and search for it as you did the Windows PC. Pair with the phone, Update Service and register Dial-Up Networking. Tap Start > Settings > Connections tab > Connections > Add a new modem connection (Tasks tab). Enter a name for the connection and choose Bluetooth Card as the modem, then set the dial-up number, User Name, and Password from your Cell Provider. On the Advanced tab (next to Tasks tab) you may want to tap Select Networks to verify "Programs that automatically connect to the Internet should connect using:" My ISP.

You can set up ActiveSync Internet sharing along side BT DUN. When ActiveSync is connected it will automatically be the source internet connection. When disconnected, the e350 will automatically attempt to use the BT DUN connection instead.

Why not use the default Microsoft BT stack on the PC? It doesn't publish any real services, just a COM port that I never got to work. The Toshiba BT stack does have a 30 day warning so you might need to fix that.

For me the total cost of setup was about $30. The host cable was $15, the SD card $10, and the USB BT dongles were $2 apiece.

Moto Q can send, however can not recieve new messages


First thought is that your certificate expired. That would explain why it would work one day and not the next.
Next thought is that you made a change to the IIS server they use to sync. Try deleting the partnership on one phone and recreating it.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Sync via bluetooth


Does your USB adapter provide serial port connections ? I had the same issue with an USB adapter with a dedicated-to-phone software. I changed to MSI bluetooth adapter and then made a serial port available to COM5, then connect activesync to COM5. (make sure on the ipaq you create a shortcut "activesync connection" and pair with the bluetooth adapter.

"Driver is not digitally signed"


If you install the Toshiba Pocket PC e570 via USB cradle under Windows 2000 or Windows XP a warning message may appear durning this installation: The driver for the USB cradle comes from Microsoft and is integrated in the ActiveSync 3.5 Software. This driver has not been signed, therefore this warning appears. Please Note: This is only a warning messages. You can certainly continue with the installation, and expect the driver to run well. Microsoft has produced a new ActiveSync Version 3.5 and has released it 1st of March 2002 . The issue is solved in the new version. The version number has remained the same, but the Build Number has increased form Build 1176 to Build 12007. This new ActiveSync Software can be downloaded from the Microsoft.

Do 802.11b CF Cards Work on Casio E-115?


My experience with Linksys support has been one of horror. It relates to a different product - 2 port lan printer server. I never got it to work right & it is gathering dust. Perhaps when I have time I will try it out with WinXP with native support if it is built in. Although a manufacturer may claim on his site that a particular device supports WinCE 3.0 on mips cpu you have hake it with a ton of salt. There have been some threads on this boards for the specific device you mention & suggest you contact the concerned persons directly for their opinion & experience. I have found DLink to be far more accurate in its claims than LinkSys.
