    No this didn't help. I still can't get it to work. I am connecting through a wireless connection at home. I have a laptop and don't have a problem, but do have a problem with this. Please help further.

Make sure odyssey setting is disabled. If not, disable it, turn off your WLAN and turn it on. Now your PDA will start connecting to your wireless system. -Ravi Kanth

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.

I have tried and tried and cannot connect to the internet on my dell axim x51. Any solutions?


This depends entirely on how you are connecting to the internet.

If you are using wireless in your house, make sure its not protected with WPA encryption, change the wireless encryption to WEP if you are using encryption. - for wireless wlan you would need a add-on Wireless adapter. if you are using bluetooth, then the settings on the computer - internet connection sharing is probably not turned on.

I can't go into detail now since this is complex and I don't have much information to work from.

this device is not easy or simple to get connected to the internet without connecting it to your computer with a data cable. with a data cable it should work instantly, if not then some settings might need to be changed.

Dell axim x51 will connect to to wifi hotspot i need detailed instructions to get it to work


Hi, follow the steps found in your owners manual. That can be downloaded at this link.
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/aximx51/en/om/om_en.pdf

Using Wi-Fi (802.11b)
Wi-Fi provides your device access to WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network.)
Short for wireless fidelity, Wi-Fi refers to any type of 802.11 network,
whether 802.11b, 802.11a, or dual-band. Wi-Fi certified products from
different manufacturers are interoperable.
NOTE: Mid and High configurations of the Axim have Wi-Fi 802.11b built in and the
drivers factory installed. For a Low configuration device, you must purchase the
802.11b SD card, insert it in your device, and load the drivers.
NOTE: The default Wireless Networking Client utility for your device is the
Dell WLAN utility. The following configuration steps are for the Dell WLAN utility.
Configure wireless networking for your device in one of the following
scenarios:
• Network Card is set up
• Wireless Network is broadcasting SSID
• Wireless Network is not broadcasting SSID
If the Network Card is Set Up
Normally the internal wireless card is already set up. There are times when
you must choose the network card. On the Axim X51/X51v configurations
that have built-in wireless, the network card is associated with the enabled
wireless. If wireless is not enabled or you are using a socket card for
wireless connection, then choose the network card:
1 Tap Start → Settings → Connections.
2 Tap Network Cards.
3 Choose either Internet or Work from the menu.
4 Choose the network card to connect to the network. For the
Axim X51/X51v with built-in wireless, choose Dell Axim X51/X51v
WLAN Wireless Adapter.
5 Choose whether the network card assigns an IP address or receives an
IP address automatically.
6 Enter the Server IP addresses if required and tap OK.
If the Wireless Network is Broadcasting SSID
1 Press the wireless button to enable wireless capability. The green LED
in the right top corner of the device indicates that the wireless
is functional.
2 Tap Start → Settings → Connections.
3 To add, edit, or delete a profile, select the corresponding action and
tap Network Cards.
4 In the Configure Wireless Networks window, select one of the available
network names and tap OK.

If the Wireless Network is Not Broadcasting SSID
The Configure Wireless Networks window only shows wireless networks
that broadcast a Network Name (SSID) and those that have been added.
Add the network if it is not listed. Contact your network administrator for
the following information:
• SSID (network name)
• Authentication
• Data Encryption
• Keys (if the key is not provided automatically)
• Log in if necessary
To configure the wireless network:
1 From the Configure Wireless Networks window, tap Add New.
2 Provide the Network Name (SSID).
3 Select either Internet or Work in the Connects To box.
• Selecting Internet allows you to connect to your network but you
will have to manually start a VPN connection, if needed.
• Selecting Work automatically starts a VPN connection any time
you connect to the network.
• If you are having trouble connecting to your network, change the
Connects To box to Internet.
4 Tap the Network Key tab.
5 Enter the Authentication and Data Encryption information. If a key is
required, enter the network key.
6 Select the 802.1x tab.
7 The Authentication and Data Encryption chosen on the previous
screen determines whether this screen is available. If available choose
the EAP type used on the network.
8 Tap OK.
9 If more than one network is listed, tap and hold the stylus on the
network name you want to connect to. A pop-up menu appears.
Tap Connect. After a few seconds you should see Connected next to
the wireless network you selected.
Thank you,
lee

Have a dell axim x5 . how do you transfer files from the pc to ax


For exact to the point instructions we need specifics about what you want to do and with what but here goes...

Can't really help with the connect to the internet without more info than you provided. You need a wireless card, access to a wireless system and the drivers for the card. Even then it is not always consistant.

First I'm assuming you know that you need and have installed Activesync on the computer.

To transfer files to the Axim you simply drop them in the mobile my documents folder that is installed on the desktop when sync files is selected in Activesync. If you don't have it, open Activesync and select" options", check the "files" box. A desktop icon will be added.

If you mean install program files... most of the time you install on the desktop and it adds files to the x5 when you sync.

Sometimes you may need to transfer CAB files to the x5. In that case you will drag and drop the file on your x5 in my computer or on the icon on the desktop just like any other file move to another location

If your trying to sync with the wireless card, I am not familier with the method but in order to get the card to work it needs drivers that must be installed from the computer and through Activesync by wired connection first

I have a dell axim x5 and it connects to my pc and internet fine when its on the docking station. I just need it to connect to my wireless internet connection wirelessly....


The X5 does NOT have wireless built in. You must add a wireless card (compactflash or SD) They tend to be finicky so do a little research for one that works well with the X5 first before buying.

I want to connect to my wireless Internet connection


If everything is working as it should. All you have to do is turn onyour Wi-Fi. You will then see a popup asking you if you would like toconnect.

You may need to add a compact flash wireless card:

Wireless connection


Check to make sure that the wireless key is set to WEP and not WPA. If it is a WPA, then you won't be able to, as the Dell Axim's don't have enough security certificates to access WPA networks.

Connectivity/activesync and network issues


When using wireless lan with PPC, there are some experience shere with you. 1. You must do an "Reset" after the first time of installing wireless driver into your DELL AXIM. Otherwise, the driver would not work. 2. Microsoft Pocket PC 2002 only can allow one source to access the internet. It can't access internet via the USB and wireless at the same time. Thus, it is more batter way to leave your AXIM alone instead of insert on cradle when you try to access internet via wireless lan. 3. Some of the wireless's CE driver are based on StrongArm, 206MHz, not PXA250, 400MHz. It will got problem when the wireless try to initiate the link between base station and PPC. Try the following step: (i) Make sure you have been install the wireless driver. (ii) Remove your wireless from CF slot. (iii) start->setting->power->processor select "PowerSave" mode and apply it. (iv) Plug wireless into CF slot (v) If you can get an dynamic IP or access internet, you can repet step 3, but select "Auto" mode. Hoping these information can solve your problem.
