Question about Dell Axim X50 Pocket PC

2 Answers

Wireless connection problem

Cannot connect to my Netgear WPN284 wireless router with my axim x50. My axim shows the Netgear wireless network, but all it will do when I try to connect is it says Connecting and thats as far as it goes. I also have a new IPAQ that connects no problem to this router. Why won't the Dell connect? I've compared the settings of the two devices and they look identical. The Axim has Windows Mobile 2003 whereas the Ipaq has Windows Mobile 5, does this have anything to do with it? Or is there something on the router that I need to change. Thanks in advance for any help I can get.

    My Dell Axim won't connect to most networks I've tried it on. It doesn't seem to matter if they are data encrypted or not, and if by some miracle it should connect everytime I try to go to a webpage I get a "cannot display page" message.

72955587_xs.jpg Wireless routers connect computers to a network without the need for network cables.

Wireless routers are used to connect computers into a network without running network cables throughout your home or office. Netgear wireless router settings must be changed using the router's Web-based interface. Any computer that is "hard wired" with a network cable to the router, rather than on a wireless connection, can be used to access the router. From the Settings menu, options such as "Encryptionicon1.png," "Network setup details" and "Passwords" can be customized.

      On a computer that is connected to the routericon1.png with a network cable, open any Web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. In the address bar, type "192.168.0.1" (without the quotes) and press "Enter." This will bring up the login prompt for most Netgear wireless routers. If that doesn't work, try "www.routerlogin.net", "192.168.0.5", or "10.1.10.1" until the login window appears.

      Type "admin" in the Username field, type "password" in the Password field and click "OK." If the password fails, try "1234," "Password" with a capital "P" or "admin". Once you enter the proper credentials, the settings screen will open.

      Make any required changes to the settings. Under Security section, it is possible to specify a new username and password for added security. Once you have saved your changes, close the window, and the system will automatically log you out.
