Question about HP iPAQ HX2490 Pocket PC
My 802.11B network has wep encryption and all devices on the network are ok including a netgear wireless print server.
However my PDA is very temperamental it usually reports that the network is unavailable. I have often removed the connection setting and it may eventually find the network again and prompt me for the password. It will then either connect or more likely not. It has connected before for long periods of time but is now most likely not to find any network including the unencrypted service that my neighbor has running.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
I encountered the same problem with WEP Encryption on my router.
I changed the security setting on my Router to WPA Encryption and then entered the key, when prompted, and voila it worked.
Don't know if this will affect any of the other devices you have connected.
There may also be Encryption for WEP&WPA on your router which may be less painful.
