Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

1 Answer

No wireless signal

I have a dell axim x51v that displays a BSSId wireless signal but the signal quality box shows no signal. Under settings it shows The device connects to "work" and the adapter that is highlighted is PPTP NDISWAN Miniport.

I purchased this second hand and both the seller and I do not have a lot of knowledge about how the wifi actually works. Any help in making the devise connect to the internet will be most helpful.

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
best wishes!

Had dell axim51 for years...never was able to connect to wireless or any internet


The way to connect to the internet with you Axim is dependant on the wireless router setup.

for instace if the wireless is set up for WEP encryption there is a ( I think) about 8-10 hex chacters(0-9, A-F) that needs to be entered to connect. You will need to find these on your router.

Other system that are not protected should have no problems. connecting
hit the broken bars and the lower right corner, then hit the turn on button, then click on the site tab, this hould show you what networks are available. It will tell you if it is protected or is an open network.

This unit will only connect to 802.11 B wireless networks.

Will not stop scanning for networks...


One other issue I always encounter is that I have to disable both of the "power conservation" settings that would allow the Axim to shut off the WLAN radio when the battery goes low. Having them enabled (which happens by default) seems to keep my Axim from locking onto our WiFi. When I disable them, I get an immediate strong connection.

You can find these settings under the Dell WLAN ultility.
