Question about Dell Axim X51v Pocket PC

1 Answer

Will not stop scanning for networks...

I'm trying to connect to my home network, and in the WLAN utility it says it has a good signal, but it will not stop scanning the network. I've already entered in the network password, the odyssey setting is off, and I've tried disabling/enabling the WLAN power. I don't know what else there is to do. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Will not stop scanning for networks...

One other issue I always encounter is that I have to disable both of the "power conservation" settings that would allow the Axim to shut off the WLAN radio when the battery goes low. Having them enabled (which happens by default) seems to keep my Axim from locking onto our WiFi. When I disable them, I get an immediate strong connection.

You can find these settings under the Dell WLAN ultility.

How to i connect my nokia e5 to wifii

Hi there
Select Menu > Ctrl. panel > Connectivity > WLAN wiz..
The WLAN wizard helps you to connect to a wireless LAN (WLAN) and manage your WLAN connections.
If the search finds WLANs, to create an internet access point (IAP) for a connection and start the web browser using this IAP, select the connection and Start web browsing.
If you select a secured WLAN, you are asked to enter the relevant password. To connect to a hidden network, you must enter the correct network name (service set identifier, SSID).

I also found the full manual in pdf format which you can download from here
Good luck

On a new iPAQ 111, I can't connect to a network wirelessly

Have you tried resetting your iPAQ? You do that by pushing the little button on the side with the stylus. The screen will go blank for a bit, and then windows will restart. I had bought mine used, and when I got it, I had the same problem in that I never got the screen that let me select the wireless network. It fixed mine. Once it is working again, try selecting "View WLAN Networks" again, and you will see a list of networks that it can hear. If the SSID Brodcast is enabled on your wireless access point, you will see your network there. If SSID is not enabled on your WAP, you will need to type in the name of your network before it will find it.

Hope this helps. Sorry it was so late in being posted.

To change the state from GSM to GPRS/EDGE on the BlackBerry smartphone:
  1. Turn the wireless transceiver off and then on.
  2. If the network indicator has not changed to GPRS/EDGE, reset your BlackBerry smartphone.

Wireless Connection

Hi Joe, Are you connecting to an Access Point on your home network? Are you connecting to a wireless connection in a cafe or something? Either way, you should be able to connect. All you need to do is tap the small symbol on the bottom right of the main screen (looks like a little staircase) and let it do it's thing. It will bring up another screen (WLan Utility). When it's connected, the arrows to the left of the clock will stop moving. If you want, you can click on the "Setting"button where you can perform more diagnostic functions. You might need to type in a network key, but otherwise, you should be working.

Wi-fi PDA connectivity problem

First, restart your pda by using your stylus and pressing the pin-hole sized button on the back of the PDA. There are sometimes a couple of different reasons why the pda wont recognize the network. Main Reason: Make sure you are at the home screen... Tap the wifi icon on the lower right corner of the pda. T hen make sure that the WLAN power is turned ON. Press the setting button. If you see your network in the list, tap on it. It should bring up a network configuration window. Make sure it says it connect to "The Internet". Then tap on the "Network Key" tab at the bottom of window. If you have no security settings on your belkin router, make sure Authentication is set to Open and Data Encryption is set to "Disabled". Then press "OK". That should Be it!!!! Let me know if this way doesnt work, or if something doesnt make sence!
