I used to be able to connect to the internet via wi fi on my ipaq 3715. now when I try to connect I get "cannot connect with current connection settings. To change your connection settings, tap settings". The next screen askes me to add a new modem connection or set up my proxy server". I don't have a clue how to do either. Also, the wi fi sometimes turns green but most of the time after it turns green, it goes to amber. I have gone in to play with the settings but I think I made things worse. What can I do at this point? Thank for anything you can do to help...

No, you can use both type of connection without problem. Ethernet is a direct wired and generally faster connection. Wi-Fi is a via air form of transmission and is highly dependent on how many cellphones and computers are connected at any one time. In airports where I work, this is a big problem. My airport lounge has its own Wi-Fi provided by DataValet for this reason.
When you connect via Ethernet the connection will be used automatically. when you wish to use Wi-Fi, you will choose that in settings. You should only use one, although it isn't going to hurt if your try connecting via both. My guess, is that it will take the best signal.
Okay, is this your mobile network (3G/4G) or your home network (Wi-Fi)? Is your service running? You should always be able to access the internet via Wi-Fi even if you don't pay your bill. Try updating your data profile. Are you paying for internet with your current plan? If not, upgrade your plan. These are just a few solutions to many reasons you cannot establish an internet connection.
Accessing Facebook needs internet connection. Without any active connection, you will not be able to connect to internet. Internet connection option for such devices: Mobile phone:1. GPRS - settings will be coming from your mobile service provider, data rates will be deducted from your load credits.2.

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.
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.
