Re: palm wifi url connection

This can happen if the wireless network you're trying to connect to is password protected. If you can see the name of the Wi-Fi network you're trying to connect to and there is a padlock symbol next to the name then you'll have to enter the WEP or WPA-PSK security keys. If this is not the case and this is your home wireless system which is unprotected then I suspect what's going on is that you may need to enter a DNS server number for your network on the Palm. To do this, select a wi-fi network you're trying to connect to, click edit, choose "configure", click on "Details". Where it says "Connect to:" select "infrastructure" then click on the "Advanced..." buttton. Try putting in the DNS server number manually for your internet service provider.

When searching for wi-fi connection palms blacks

This is hard to say what it is for sure but I would think your problem is your battery needs replacement. The wifi works fine with a good battery but uses much more power than anything else so it can quickly drain an older battery. If it is older than a year or so it might be it. I have a lifedrive that will kill a battery within a few minutes on the wifi. When new I could use it for several hours. If you put it on the charger it should work normally if this is the case.

Error message #80070002 treo 750

Ok, email can be setup using a bunch of different protocols. The difference is how directly you phones data and the data on the server interact. POP and IMAP are methods for receiving email from the server, to send they use a protocol called SMTP. With POP3, email is all downloaded to your phone and saved there, with IMAP you only download the headers (...a header is like the back cover of a book). An Exchange server can do SMTP with either POP or IMAP, but when it says configure for Exchange - it means actually connecting to the mail server and integrating contacts, calendar items, email, like the Outlook client on your Windows machine. This is obviously much more server intensive and requires special permissions to do.

POP and IMAP will require the following information to work. Your login name, your password, your server, and whether the connection is secure. To find these out you can go to your coporate webmail. The user name is what you put in the user login spot, as is the password, the server will usually be either mail followed by a dot and the second half of your email address, or the web URL for the mail server...if the web access page address starts "https" then the connection is most likely secure.

Palm Tungsten t5 WiFi

I suspect that you're in fact holding a Palm TX and not a T5 as the T5 does not have WiFi. If you're using the Palm SD WiFi adaptor, do a hard reset without the card.

(hold down the ON/OFF button whilst using the reset pin to press the reset button. You'll be asked if you are sure you wish to reset. You'll then be prompted to choose the language caliberate the screen etc..)

After that. Go and download all the updates and drivers from Palm Web site.

try a ping test from your router(should be under a status tab or something) and if that works then go to the prefrences, wifi, info(conect first!) edit network, details, advanced then enter a custom ip ie just copy the first 3 sections of the ip address of your router and add a number greater than 1 after and enter your routers ip address for the dns server.
