Can get wireless on my dell gx270

Most desktop computers do not have a wireless card installed.
You need to install a wireless card in the expansion slot and install the wireless driver, then configure this wireless card with your router's wireless settings so it can connect to the wireless router.

Memory upgarde ipaq 3630

Hi there

1) Where can you purchase the memory? - you can buy them at many stores such as Walmart if you come from USA or Game if you come from South Africa.

2) How much can you put in? - Depending on the model of your Pocket Pc you can put up to 1gigabite but they usually come with only 64mb.

3) How to install it - You must first buy an HP expansion pack which you place on your Pocket Pc and you place the extra memory card in the expansion pack.

4) Where can you download software for it? - The memory card comes with the software installed already

Kind regards

Using TomTom nevigator

For use with TTN you'll need the following: -A GPS mouse (either wired or wireless if you have bluetooth on your ipaq) -TomTom software -Memory card (usually Secure Digital of Compact Flash) to store the differents maps on it. It's also recommended to have a card reader on your pc to transfer the maps on the expansion card. Good luck and let me know if it works out or not
