Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

Configuration of Axium X5

'm having trouble configuring the x5 to work w/my CF Modem 56k.I have some questions that may help clear it up: 1.When I make a New Connection what do I put in the "select a modem" portion (Hayes Copm, Generic IrDA Modem, etc)? 2. In the TCP/Ip tab, do I use a specific IP address? I have two on-line accounts, Juno and MSN. How can I get their IP address? 3. In the Name Servers tab what does the DNS,Alt DNS, etc mean? Where do I get those numbers. 4.When asked for a phone #, do I put my home/area code # or is it the Access # from one of my ISP's? When I configered it before it seems to want to connect but I think its not configured correctly. If you have help in the above matter or a number I can call pleae let me know.

1. It depends on the brand of CF modem you have. The device should have come with a drivers CD that needs to be installed before attempting to create a connection. 2. This depends on your provider. Generally you should leave it set to DHCP. You will need to copy the settings from your main computer to the PDA 3. Again this depends on the ISP. ALT DNS is just a backup in case the first server fails. 4. Phone# is the ISP's access number.

Can I use Standard 4G or 8G SD or Cf cards in a Dell Axim X5?


SD cards must be SD not SDHC, there is not an SDHC driver for the X5. You can find regular SD cards up to 4G.

CF is no problem, all flash based CF cards will work. Microdrives can be problematic.

Axim X5 and he webanwireless


There are a few ways. It depends how and where you want to get online. One way would be to purchase a CF Wi-Fi card, (about $65, made by D-Link, Lynksys or Netgear). This will allow you to access the net via your home or office wireless nework (assuming you have one). The CF Wi-Fi card will also allow you to access the net at any of the numerous public Wi-Fi "hotspots". Airports, cafes, city parks and hotels are the most common public places that provide such access, and the number of such places is growing. There are websites out there that list where such hotspots are located in various cities and states throughout the country. You can also purchase a CF Wireless Modem card from a wireless internet service provider. You will have to subscribe to the service (about $40 to $70 per month), and purchase the modem (about $200 - $300). Make sure that the coverage area is compatible with where you want to acess the net most. There are national companies, but their coverage are seems to be limited to major cities. The last way that I know of would be to purchase a Dial Up Modem CF Card. (Not sure how much they go for, but between $50 and $120 would be a close guess.) This will allow you to connect it to a phone line and dial up the same Internet Provider that you use for your Desktop PC.

for those in the States at least, the economics. Many new vehicles here come with GPS and mapping options today for a nominal amount. I was also looking at this Garmin portable. I am not familiar with what is available in Europe though, I know the cellular technology is far ahead of the States. I just thought I would throw this out there. Good luck with your efforts.
