Question about Dell Axim X30 Pocket PC

1 Answer

I can't connect to the internet with my dell axim x30

I keep trying to connect to the internet wirelesslly using my raido (Wi-Fi) and Odyssey Client or dell WLAN Utility. I'm able to locate access points and even sometimes connect where there are packets going in and out through the established connection. But when I establish a connection and go to my pocket e internet explorer i'm not able to brouse the internet @ all and this was the only reason i invested in my pocket pc was to have mobile internet. Am I missing a program or driver, or do I need to subscribe and pay some company in order to use this service? I thought that if there was a free public access point @ say starbucks or something I should be able to link and connect like I would with a laptop that has wireless Wi-Fi or WLAN raidos! Please give feedback on this matter I'd be very greatfull with any help and understanding in this!! THANKX,

Re: I can't connect to the internet with my dell axim x30

I have the same problem. I have a router and WLAN in my house. I actually connect to the network, the pocket PC says the strenght of the connection is Excellent, even green connection bars, in the right-bottom corner are visible.. But when I try to ping any other computer connected to the network it says NO RESPONSE, not mentioning being unable to surf the net with browser. However, i recall that if you have some wierd kind of encryption, ie. WEP, or WPA or some other - some devices can have problems connectiong to the router(access point). Please somebody comment on what i've mentioned.

How do you install downloaded programs on the Dell Axim X30?

Downloaded programs can be installed onto the Dell Axim X30 using Microsoft ActiveSync. Microsoft ActiveSync can be installed onto your computer using the Dell Companion CD which came with your Axim X30.
Once Microsoft ActiveSync is set up on your computer, if the program you downloaded came in an installer file, then double-clicking on the file will start the installation wizard and the software will be automatically transferred to the Axim.
If the program you downloaded did not come as an installer file, then double-clicking it will bring up an error message. In that case, use ActiveSync Explore to copy the program file to the Program Files folder on your Axim.

Lost CD Rom for my Axim x30. Anywhere I can download it?

You need ActiveSync from Microsoft. Unless you're using Vista which uses Windows Mobile Device Center. Connecting to the Axim to a Vista machine should automatically download the Windows Mobile Device Center software.

ActiveSync for XP and older systems can be downloaded here:

You'll proabbly still want to update your Axim's firmware and drivers if possible.

Good luck!
