Question about Dell Axim X50 Pocket PC

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.

Had dell axim51 for years...never was able to connect to wireless or any internet

The way to connect to the internet with you Axim is dependant on the wireless router setup.

for instace if the wireless is set up for WEP encryption there is a ( I think) about 8-10 hex chacters(0-9, A-F) that needs to be entered to connect. You will need to find these on your router.

Other system that are not protected should have no problems. connecting
hit the broken bars and the lower right corner, then hit the turn on button, then click on the site tab, this hould show you what networks are available. It will tell you if it is protected or is an open network.

This unit will only connect to 802.11 B wireless networks.

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.

Wireless internet

Basicly the wireless router needs to be connected into the internet, then you will be able to connect to it. You need to install the card and make sure it works in your device, then connect into the router and it should work fine.

Recieving and sending E-mail

The Dell Axim X5 has Microsoft Pocket Outlook pre-installed, so use that instead of MSN Messenger to e-mail. MSN Messenger is just meant for instant messaging.
You can fill in your e-mailaddress and server-data, while offline, but to sign in with any of those programs you'll need an internet connection, so you first need to connect to a wireless network, that's in range. If there is no wireless network, you have access to, you'll not be able to use these programs.

What do you mean with a wireless card? Is there no wireless card in the PDA, or don't you have a wireless network? To set up a wireless network, you need a wireless router, or WLAN-router.

Success, and just ask if you need more help

Wireless connection

Check to make sure that the wireless key is set to WEP and not WPA. If it is a WPA, then you won't be able to, as the Dell Axim's don't have enough security certificates to access WPA networks.

Connecting a Ipaq RX3715 to a wireless router

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.

Connectivity/activesync and network issues

When using wireless lan with PPC, there are some experience shere with you. 1. You must do an "Reset" after the first time of installing wireless driver into your DELL AXIM. Otherwise, the driver would not work. 2. Microsoft Pocket PC 2002 only can allow one source to access the internet. It can't access internet via the USB and wireless at the same time. Thus, it is more batter way to leave your AXIM alone instead of insert on cradle when you try to access internet via wireless lan. 3. Some of the wireless's CE driver are based on StrongArm, 206MHz, not PXA250, 400MHz. It will got problem when the wireless try to initiate the link between base station and PPC. Try the following step: (i) Make sure you have been install the wireless driver. (ii) Remove your wireless from CF slot. (iii) start->setting->power->processor select "PowerSave" mode and apply it. (iv) Plug wireless into CF slot (v) If you can get an dynamic IP or access internet, you can repet step 3, but select "Auto" mode. Hoping these information can solve your problem.
