Question about HP iPAQ H5550 Pocket PC

1 Answer

WLAN problems Can't always connect to a wireless site. When it is new to the pda, it generally connects to the site. However, when I return to the same site, the pda won't allow me to connect to the internet. It "sees" the wireless site and says it is connected. But when you tap explorer, you get a message saying you cannot connect with those settings. But the settings show a wide open link. Any suggestions on what to try?

Just some stabs in the dark:

1) Are the site and your iPAQ using the same security setting? Both must be the same: WEP, OPEN (none) or WPA.

2) Does the site require you to acknowledge an opening page FIRST before allowing you to proceed to the page you wish? This happens to me frequently. I'm redirected initally to an acknowledgement page (legalese) first and I (at first) didn't realize I have to scroll down, find the OK and click to proceed.

3) Sometimes in the past, I've had to disable security at the router (assuming you control it, like at home), connect in the open, turn security back on, reconnect using passkey and from then on, I'm connected without having to reenter key (based on setting). Didn't make any sense to me, but it seemed to work that was, for a couple different devices I own.

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.

How can i activate internet on nokia E63?

Your device can detect and connect to wireless local area networks (WLAN). Using a WLAN, you can connect your device to the internet. To use a WLAN connection, you must create an internet access point (IAP) for the WLAN. Use the access point for applications that need to connect to the internet.
Use the WLAN wizard to create an access point
1. You can access the WLAN wizard directly from your home screen's information area. Another way to get to the WLAN wizard is to select Menu > Connectivity > WLAN wizard.
2. If the search finds WLANs, you can create an internet access point - scroll to the connection, select Options > Start web browsing. If you select a secured WLAN, you will be asked to enter the relevant password. To connect to a hidden network, you must enter the correct network name (service set identifier, SSID).
3. To end the active connection, select the connection > Options and Exit. If you want to define whether you want to use the WLAN or packet data connection when starting to browse the web, you can set it so that the device always asks which access point is to be used.

Set up an access point inquiry when you open the browser
1. Select Options > Settings.
2. Select General > Access point, and from Always ask - You always get to select which access point you use.

Pocket pc says it is connected to internet, if I try to go to a site an internet explorer message comes up the page you are looking for can not be found, if pocket pc is hooked up to another computer if...

Most probably, you are experiencing the mentioned symptoms because the wireless setting for your PDA are not set up correctly.

Have a look at the following link:

and scroll to the section: "Using the Wireless LAN (H5550 only)". If you are not using the WLAN utility and are connecting to the internet using a different device, try having a look at the sections: "Connecting to the Internet" and "Using Bluetooth"

Hope it helps.

The linkssys usb adapter does not connect automatically to the WLAn router. it always says "win xp manage the wlan" but this is not true

the problem may be caused by the installation of the usb adapter's WLAN software (WinXP already has a built-in WLAN). Ty uninstalling the adapter's WLAN monitor, unplug and replug the USB adapter to your computer and it will be installed automatically. Once installed, Go to Control Panel >> Network Connections >>Right click Wireless Network Connections and click View available wireless networks. Try manually connecting initially to the router and see if it will be automatic from then on.

Wireless Connection

Hi Joe, Are you connecting to an Access Point on your home network? Are you connecting to a wireless connection in a cafe or something? Either way, you should be able to connect. All you need to do is tap the small symbol on the bottom right of the main screen (looks like a little staircase) and let it do it's thing. It will bring up another screen (WLan Utility). When it's connected, the arrows to the left of the clock will stop moving. If you want, you can click on the "Setting"button where you can perform more diagnostic functions. You might need to type in a network key, but otherwise, you should be working.

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!

Internet connection at my e830

To configure the Wireless connection you can use the Wifi connection wizard or setup the connection manually. I hope that you have checked your workgroup too. Also you should check if your IP settings are the same at the router and PDA (dynamic and static IP)! If you have some another device connected to the router remember them when you setup the PDA connection! In the end the MAC address of the PDA WLAN card must be saved in the router!
