I can't use the WIFI in my ASUS A716 through neither my work or home internet though I enter the correct passcode for both networks I always get a msg saying that I have entered the wrong passcode!!

Greetings Reem - There are two likely problems keeping your Pocket PC from connecting to either your home or work WiFi networks.

The first is that your A716 is probably still running Windows Mobile 2003 or has been upgraded to Windows Mobile 5 -- Neither of which is capable of supporting the WPA security standard that is most likely setup on your work network and probably also on your home WiFi router. The easiest thing to do at work is to ask the person in charge of the network what kind of security is used on the network. Same goes for home -- Ask the person who setup the WiFi connection.

If the answer is WPA or anything other than WEP ( or open - meaning no security -- very, very improbable) you won't be able to connect your PDA to that network at all. At home maybe you have a chance to have the security settings lowered to WEP (of course your A716 will also have to be setup to use WEP).

The other possible problem you might be having with connecting is that your device has 802.11b WiFi built in (11 Mbps) instead of the now standard 802.11g (54 Mbps). Some networks are setup only to allow 802.11g connections. Again, you would ask at work and home. Here, if that is the problem, you have a chance of the settings being changed to allow 802.11b connections.

Thanks for using Fix Ya and good luck

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.

PDA internet

You do not need the card slot for internet, you can put a memory card in there to store your data.
The PDA supports Wifi, so it is able to connect to a wireless network, as long as it is in range and it is allowed to access the network.
I don't know if you've got the manual. Anyway, you can find it here.
How to make a connection is explained in section 10, under 'Creating an ethernet connection'. I think a network card is already installed in your PDA.

You can manage email by using the pre-installed Microsoft Outlook. How to use this is also explained in the manual, in section 6.

If you need any further help, just post your question.

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.

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!

You will not believe me but I have a similar problem. I have also Belkin router at home and wireless connection with my e800 works perfect. A few days ago I have tried to connect my PDA to wireless router of my best friend. His wireless network is protected like mine and after configuration of all settings I had no success. The funny thing is that PDA show me the status CONNECTED but I can not use the internet explorer. Like I said, at home with my Belkin it works properly. I can really not explain what the problem is.
