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

Can't browse in my internet explorer


Hmmm.. try downloading this and running it:

its a system update for your pocket pc, supposedly it will fix any issues you have. Also you may want to check your router and make sure your axim is allowed on this list of IPs.

ALSO make sure the "enable" switch is turned on, on the right lower bottom of the device.

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.

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.

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
