Yes you should first upgrade/reinstall the ROM. That includes your firmware, OS and drivers.
Go to HP's web site and download these uprgades. Here's a dirrect link.
Select your OS from the list first. Follow the instructions that come with these files. If after this it still doesn't work please let me know.

It is not the problem with the router. It is the problem with the wireless adapter on your computer. Open Network connections and look for Wireless network connection. If it is not there then open the Device Manager and look for Wireless network adapter under Network adapters. It seems that wireless adapter on your computer is not working or it is not detected by your computer. If you have external wireless adapter then unplug it and replug it.
Have you tried resetting your iPAQ? You do that by pushing the little button on the side with the stylus. The screen will go blank for a bit, and then windows will restart. I had bought mine used, and when I got it, I had the same problem in that I never got the screen that let me select the wireless network. It fixed mine. Once it is working again, try selecting "View WLAN Networks" again, and you will see a list of networks that it can hear. If the SSID Brodcast is enabled on your wireless access point, you will see your network there. If SSID is not enabled on your WAP, you will need to type in the name of your network before it will find it.
Hope this helps. Sorry it was so late in being posted.
Thanks for using FixYa. HP ipaq HX2415 is compatible with Windows Vista Mobile Device center Version 6.1. Please check if you are using version 6.1, you can download the Windows Vista Mobile Device center Version 6.1 from this link--
try resetting the router and try connecting
check whts the wireless standards in the router and the ipaq and config according to that for instance if ur router can support b then try entering the setting manually it will work
try entering the correct wireless key
Go to Settings-Connections-Connections-advanced-Network Card.
You will see all available wireless networks in your area. Double click the desired wireless network and tap connect. Note whether the desired network has been connected.
Hope this help,
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.
First, you have to be sure your ipaq has wi-fi feature is on and you can check on network connectivity option for any wrong setup there. According to your information, your ipaq is not recognized by your router and I agreed that your router is working normally. Try to reboot your ipaq and be sure to get wi-fi to turn on and try to connect it again. I have my Dell Axim also used Windows Mobile like Ipaq and it connected easily with no issue. The message in your to show me that you need first to identify your ipaq before you you can get it to connect to your network. I hope this help.
