    I have the exact same problem, it once connected and now I can't connect or find the wireless card as present on the Axim. What's up with that? Is there a way to physically check the card? I have reset the thing a bunch of times and still no go.

How do you install downloaded programs on the Dell Axim X30?


Downloaded programs can be installed onto the Dell Axim X30 using Microsoft ActiveSync. Microsoft ActiveSync can be installed onto your computer using the Dell Companion CD which came with your Axim X30.
Once Microsoft ActiveSync is set up on your computer, if the program you downloaded came in an installer file, then double-clicking on the file will start the installation wizard and the software will be automatically transferred to the Axim.
If the program you downloaded did not come as an installer file, then double-clicking it will bring up an error message. In that case, use ActiveSync Explore to copy the program file to the Program Files folder on your Axim.

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.

No wifi, how do i get on internet


This model of the Axim X30 does not have built in wi-fi capability. You need to purchase a 802.11 b/g Wireless SDIO card.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT INSERT SDIO CARD INTO AXIM X30 BEFORE INSTALLING DRIVERS.

1. Connect the Axim X30 to your computer.
2. Establish a connection between the two devices using Active-Sync.
3. Insert CR-ROM which ships with the SDIO card in your computer.
4. Follow instructions for installing Driver an Utility.
5. Install SDIO card into the SD slot on the Axim X30.

Connect to the Internet


ok, this is a little technical, dell decided to make a complicated WiFi system for this, but once ou get the hang opf it you will be able to connect in no tim.
1. push the WiFi button located on the lower right side , it kind of is flush with the body
2. wait about 20 seconds, if the WiFi meter in the lower right corner of the screen does not change the you will have to go deeper into the system.
3.hopefuly you have noticed the blue light flashing by now, if it has an erratic flash , it is searching for a signal
4.no wifi yet? ok use the stylus to tap the wifi meter bar on the screen, this will show a menu consisting of a (WiFi radio on/off option, edit profiles option, WLan status option, site survey option, advanced, and versions.
5.tap the WLan staus option, this will bring you to the menu, this menu can also be accessed by going to settings. anyway look at the bars for link quality and strenghth, if they have a little bit of blue or none at allgo to site survey at the bottom of the screen
6.this menu shows al the available wifi networks in your area, ifnone show up, and you know you are near one tap the profiles setting, this will show all the nearby sites you can tap and hold any of these sites and manually connect to the internet that way.
7. I warn you , the dell x30 is a little wonky a great PDA and usually works great for the internet but sometimes it jsut plain refuses to actually connect to a site, even though it has a connection. I haqve found the best way to cure this is to do a soft reset, and reconnect.
If this still doesnt work for you, feel free to repost this question or email me, i might be able to help with some more details

Lost CD Rom for my Axim x30. Anywhere I can download it?


You need ActiveSync from Microsoft. Unless you're using Vista which uses Windows Mobile Device Center. Connecting to the Axim to a Vista machine should automatically download the Windows Mobile Device Center software.

ActiveSync for XP and older systems can be downloaded here:

You'll proabbly still want to update your Axim's firmware and drivers if possible.

Good luck!

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:

I can't connect to the internet with my dell axim x30


I have the same problem. I have a router and WLAN in my house. I actually connect to the network, the pocket PC says the strenght of the connection is Excellent, even green connection bars, in the right-bottom corner are visible.. But when I try to ping any other computer connected to the network it says NO RESPONSE, not mentioning being unable to surf the net with browser. However, i recall that if you have some wierd kind of encryption, ie. WEP, or WPA or some other - some devices can have problems connectiong to the router(access point). Please somebody comment on what i've mentioned.

Dell axim x30


HI You have two ways: 1) Install the ActiveSync (Version 4.2 is recommended) PC Software with your PC first Next, you connect your Axim to your PC. Then you install the software or game into your PC. it will also install into your Axim automatically thru Sync process. 2) Or install the software or games into your External SD Memory card thru USB SD Card reader. Then put your sd memory card into your Axim and run the software or game. The 2GB or 4GB SD Card is reccommended since the game or software sometime is huge. I hope it is help. Regards, pingping
