Re: Internet and Bluetooth Problems
The issue you have is that the Axim does not have any built in connectivity for networking. In order for the Bluetooth to connect you, you would have to first pair the Axim to a Bluetooth enabled phone that can support Internet connections. Bluetooth on its own can't connect to the Internet, it is a protocol to link devices together. The easier way would be to buy a wireless 802.11 compact flash card that will support PocketPC and then use a wireless access point to connect to the Internet.

I use AS 4.1. I think the Axim will use up to AS 4.5. I had no problems with sync until SP3 came out. Now I must resart the computer with the Axim connected to sync. If the computer goes into suspend it will no longer connect until restarted.
Attempt a restart with it connected.
I have known others with no ability to get the Axim and other devices to be recognized. Unaware of a solution in that case.
For exact to the point instructions we need specifics about what you want to do and with what but here goes...
Can't really help with the connect to the internet without more info than you provided. You need a wireless card, access to a wireless system and the drivers for the card. Even then it is not always consistant.
First I'm assuming you know that you need and have installed Activesync on the computer.
To transfer files to the Axim you simply drop them in the mobile my documents folder that is installed on the desktop when sync files is selected in Activesync. If you don't have it, open Activesync and select" options", check the "files" box. A desktop icon will be added.
If you mean install program files... most of the time you install on the desktop and it adds files to the x5 when you sync.
Sometimes you may need to transfer CAB files to the x5. In that case you will drag and drop the file on your x5 in my computer or on the icon on the desktop just like any other file move to another location
If your trying to sync with the wireless card, I am not familier with the method but in order to get the card to work it needs drivers that must be installed from the computer and through Activesync by wired connection first
I purchased a VeriFone 11 Mbps 802.11b Wireless Compact Flash Adapter card for my Axim X5. I put the disc and the wifi card in my laptop and I can get on the internet. But can't seem to get it going in the Axim. It always reads "Unrecognized Card". Tried ActiveSynce and putting the drivers on a different Flash card. No luck..
For x5, you will need either cf wifi card or sd wifi card. If wifi network hotspot is free and internet access is allowed (check with your college's network administrator for information), all you need is be in the range, turn the wifi on and connect to it (there maybe several security settings you have to do on the axim and these can also be obtained from network admin). For paid hotspot, you will be redirected to enter username and password when you ty to access internet.
Does your system detect the handheld? After you connect the cradle or cable to the computer, then you should be prompted to install drivers for the handheld. Make sure that Dell Pocket PC appears in the Device Manager.
I can connect my Axim X5 to the Internet using my mobile phone via infrared without a problem. You need to create a new dial-up connection using "Generic Infrared" modem in the setup. The number to be dialled is a function of your mobile phone. On my Nokia 6230i the "number" is *99# for creating a GPRS connection. Your mobile phone has to be correctly set up for Internet access and obviously you have to have a data plan.
