Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC
'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.
