Probably only recognizes WEP. I know this is a problem with Palms unless you get a WPA driver. PDAs have limited protection features just like T-Mobiles Wi Fi phones have. If you are using smaller electronic devices on your network you are better off setting the wireless security protection on your router to WEP, 64 bit, personal. That should work on your MDA.

No wireless signal


hi Steve!the easy way to connect to a wifi network is to switch on the wifi..as soon as it looks up a network it will propmt you..use the connect option and fill in the password if prompted..you should be connected..if this is the first time ur using this great device do read the manual at http://www.retrevo.com/support/Dell-X51v-PDAs-and-Handhelds-manual/id/281ag510/t/2/
you may need a free registration..also if you have not loaded any new software etc i reccomend you could do a hard reset and start the PDA like a new one!do remeber it will restore it to factory settings..
hope this helps..i could also help u out with any other issues u may have like software,tweaking etc.etc

Wireless Connection to the Internet


Hey mate,

So looking at your pda - it has no wlan build in, so you would need to get a wireless adapter for it.

Its pretty simple, install the adapter, plug it in, setup the wireless details of your home and your set to go.

I have an IPAQ 3950 PDA, I bought a in car charger from ebay and after using it my PDA no longer works. It will not switch on, charge on its home cradle or connect to my laptop, the IPAQ is completely...


Thath iPAQ have two security fuses inside,, maybe one blows up when you connect that charger,,, this is not an easy repair work,, you need to have advance experience on electronics,, or take it to an expert service shop,,, good luck!!

No display


Hello LyMaBa

Do you have an SD card inserted in the PDA?

If so remove it and restart your PDA.

Did the problem go away. If so, please, go HERE for the Zire 71 Expansion update or HERE for the SD/SDIO update.

You can find all the manuals for the Palm Zire 71 PDA HERE.

If you don't have a SD card inserted, you might want to try performing a WARM RESET of your PDA. Youtube has a video on this process HERE.

You can find instructions HERE for performing a reset ("warm" or "hard") on your Palm PDA.

You can find other software, info, downloads, etc.
HERE for your Zire 71.

If performing a "warm" reset doesn't work, try performing a "hard" reset.

*** WARNING!!! ***
YOU WILL loose ALL of your data on the PDA by performing a "hard" reset so make sure it's data has been synchronized w/ your computer software (Palm Desktop, Microsoft Outlook, etc).

It doesnt go thru walls very well, 5m seems the limit with deteriorating signal. Rather get your wireless router out into the open (not hiddden behind a computer desk) and the antenna pointing in the direction of the other one. There is a signal strenght utility that asus has that stays resident as an app. use that to assertain your signal viability

IPAQ wireless connectivity


always start with the simplest answer first so make sure you have WiFi turned on. Think back, have you changed the wireless security on your router? If so you may need to re-enter the network details or add your iPAQ's MAC address to the access control list on the router. In the bottom right-hand corner of the home screen you should have a small HP Wireless symbol, if you tap it you should get your HP Wireless control panel on screen and can 1: turn WiFi on and off, 2: manually enter the WiFi network details and 3: search for WiFi networks in range.

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!

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.

E750 use with Garmin 76 GPS


If no one has any solution for your issue in my opinion you should check the manufacturer’s site. Maybe there you can find out if this unit is compatible with your PDA. Usually you can find it under support or FAQs.
