WiFi not connecting to cisco router

I have a palm t/x. I've been able to use the wifi at friends and some stores but when I'm at home even standing right beside my wireless router it doesn't detect a signal. I've manually entered my ssid and password but still nothing. My laptop and x-box found the signal once the password was entered. Any ideas.

Most likely the Palm "listens" on another frequency.

Make sure your cisco is running the Wireless b standard as that is what the Palm Tx needs.

Mixed mode is another option (b and G at the same time)


Let's say your router is supporting the b standard. Knowing the cisco APs a bit, it is also possible to have a channel selected that an older device cannot see/or it is set for another region (which in fact is the same, as frequency ranges are different for each continent).

There are many tools for WIFI analysis, many are free. They will tell you what your router is transmitting at, etc... withouth having to go into the cisco IOS.

Then to get on the internet, it is the same as a wireless laptop, you go to the WIFI icon, and select the hotspot you are in IE: Home WIFI, Panera Bread (free WIFI)

Wifi connection issues with Palm One LifeDrive


It sounds like you need to setup the network settings on the palm or the wep or securty key or both.

When it shows the network id tap edit then enter the wep or wpa key if needed, then tap details to get to the screen where you enter the normal network details.

Usually it is just the security key that causes this. Get that code in and you might pop right on.

Have to reset Palm TX to power on sometimes


I have a palm TX and it usually just sits for a minute or two when I use blazer. I have also found out that the pda will always reset itself and it only freezes when it has a lot going on. It stays frozen for a while, but eventually unfreezes. As for the home button, it's probably worn down. My power button and my up button have almost completely stopped working.

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.

Need help to set up WiFi on 8125 smartphone


You may need to upgrade the htc wizard to use 102.11g networks. You can do this yourself if you follow these steps. Google a program called total commander. download and install it on your phone. Now open total commander. Listed on the very top of the folders list will be \\ -Click on \\ -then click registry (you are now in the devices registry, be careful not to change other things) - select hklm (this stands for Hkey local machine) you need to go to this location HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMM\TNETWLN1\PARMS (so you would choose comm, then scroll down to tnetwln1, then select that and scroll down to parms and select parms) then assign the follow changes to the keys listed in PARMS... Assign a value of 1 to dot11SupportedRateMask Assign a value of 8 to dot11SupportedRateMaskG Perform a soft reset (do this by holding the power button for roughly 6 seconds, until a box comes up asking you if you want to shut off the device. Turn it off, then turn it back on and the changes will go into effect) Then simply try to log on your router Peter

Hx2410 general wi-fi questions


Have you been able to connect through your router at home? I'd get that set up and running first. Then doing it on the road will merely be variations on a familiar theme. If you've tried at home but it hasn't worked, let us know something about your home network (what kind of router? using security/encryption?), and about what you've already tried so we can try to help.
