It could be related to DNS, in which case you will need to address your network settings, but on a Palm it is more likely a memory/ software issue. Try using something like AvantGo which caches pages locally to make sure that the device has the memory and capability to actually use the pages your trying to load. Then diagnose whatever browser your using possibly reinstalling it.

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.

Hot sync does not complete!


Something similar happened to me due to incorrect periodic entries in the Datebook, try disabling all elements in the Hot Sync, try it, and if it works, then add them one by one until you find the offending one, then focus on clearing that DB.
(Actually i simply stopped synching Datebook since i didn't wanted to loose all the history of appointments i have).

Palm wifi url connection


This can happen if the wireless network you're trying to connect to is password protected. If you can see the name of the Wi-Fi network you're trying to connect to and there is a padlock symbol next to the name then you'll have to enter the WEP or WPA-PSK security keys. If this is not the case and this is your home wireless system which is unprotected then I suspect what's going on is that you may need to enter a DNS server number for your network on the Palm. To do this, select a wi-fi network you're trying to connect to, click edit, choose "configure", click on "Details". Where it says "Connect to:" select "infrastructure" then click on the "Advanced..." buttton. Try putting in the DNS server number manually for your internet service provider.

How to connect my palm to my computer when I am using a reseault Linksys


hi. try this.

have the tx search for you network using the wifi button at the bottom of the screen.
select/highlight your network and click edit. note do not connect to it yet
click configure.
on the security, pull down the arrow and pick WEP (or WPA according to what your router has.) note that since you mentioned the 10 digit alphanumeric code i assume it is WEP
on the key type click on 40 bit hex
i usually leave the four keys unchecked. (unless you have 4 keys)
insert your alphanumeric key that you use to protect your network into the dotted line.
ok
ok
click yes to connect. enjoy.

if your pda has connected and you still cannot get your internet, please read below.

PS. some internet servers may require a new user to input a name and password as a safeguard. this is familiar when you try to log into a public wifi hotspot with your laptop and the web browser always redirects you to an agreement page.


if this is so, what i do is to run my internet browser. let it load the first page then i accept the agreement and i am in.

hope this works for you. please feel free to email me with any more questions.
enjoy

Bluetooth Internet Connection Problem


You have established a bluetooth connection between your Palm and your PC, but you probably haven't configured your internet connection to be shared with the Palm. o do so, open My Network Places by right-clicking it and selecting Properties. The Bluetooth Network adapter was automatically created during the Bluetooth installation. Right click the icon and select Properties. In the General tab select the Internet Protocol components and click Properties. Write down all the information from the next dialog, and click Cancel. Back in the Adapter properties, select the "Sharing" tab and check "Enable Internet Connection Sharing for this connection". Now, to configure the Bluetooth USB, right-click the Bluetooth icon in the system tray and select Advanced Configuration. Change to the Local Services tab and double click "Network Access". Change the type of service to "Allow other devices to acces the Internet/LAN via this computer". The alternative to this option will allow your device to connect to your computer as part of a LAN, but will not have internet access. Note the Configure Connection Sharing button: it'll open the configuration screens we've visited before. But some Bluetooth software will not have this button, hence I guided you through the other route . On your Palm device, a new Connection configuration is needed. From the Palm Launcher open the Prefs application, and switch to Connection. You'll see a list of connections and will tap the New... button. You can assign any meaningful name to this connection. Select the values as indicated in this image. Tap the device name to choose what computer will be used for this connection. Make sure your computer is in discoverable mode. If you tap the Details button you'll see the next screen. Now create a new Network access configuration, using the connection created in the previous steps. Tap Network to go to the next screen. Tap the New... button and enter a name for your Network access configuration. You shouldn't need a username and password. Tap the Connect button and you should see your LAN connection initiating. To make sure the connection is working, still in the Connect dialog, tap the menu Preferences and select Options. Choose View Log and the screen you see will show the negotiation between the Palm and the DHCP server on the network. To check your DNS is working, scroll to the bottom of this log, and enter PING and a hostname. Use the Return stroke as an Enter and If your connection does not complete, or if your Palm shows a Timeout error, try adding a script to this connection. This is common with Palm OS 4. Newer versions of Palm OS should not need any script to work. From the Network dialog, tap the Details button. On the next dialog tap the Script button. On this script dialog enter the following: SEND CR DELAY 1 SEND CLIENT WAITFOR CLIENTSERVER END Hope this works!

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.
