    I have exactly the same problem with my 2490b.. It was working fine until a few days ago. I have tried all resets and even a total reinstall but still the same problem.

    I have exactly the same thing with my ipaq 2495. I contacted Tech Support, they charged me $25 and did nothing.

By any chance, does anyone with this problem have Pie_Plus or a similar browsing program installed? I saw another thread where people were complaining of Pie_Plus and the wifi. I recently installed Pie-Plus and began having the WiFi "Driver not loaded" problem. So I unistalled Pie_Plus and my wifi works again. Hope this helps

Ok in the very right bottom corner of the screen you will see a signal with a tiny tiny red x on it click or use your styleist then a screen will pop up from top to bottom WIFI and the bluetooth icon if you just want the WIFI on click WIFI icon it will search for you give it a sec or two the icon will first turn yellow then it should turn green it connects automaticly if that doesnt work just click the settings that will be lit up white after clicking that you will see add New.... then right below that you will see the avalible options to connect to pick the one that your using at home or at the office or if your at a coffie shop click that one if any of them requires a network key type the key code in and you should be connected after that.

all you have to do to check is make sure that WIFI icon is green and your connected and have fun surfing the web :)

How do I setup my HP iPaq 2210 to access the internet with a WLAN-11b card? What are the steps?

First of all, you should install the driver for your wlan-11b card to your PDA. (There should be a CD given with the wifi card, or you can download in online through the card's brand's website, ex. .cab file for a Spectec SDW821 Wi-Fi Card) At this step, you should be carefull with the version of windows mobile on your device and the driver's version for windows mobile. After that, you should plug your wifi card to your PDA's SD slot, and your PDA will recognize it. So you can go to your settings, and there you can search for a wireless network.

When i do hard reset hx2490b screen calibration does not appear

Try using your finger to calibrate the screen at first. (If you have difficult to navigate to the alignment screen use the stylus & keyboard to feel out your way) when calibrated to an accepable degree use the stylus to calibrate the sreen, if the target doesn't respond to stylus at any specific piont use your finger. Continue this process till u get it aligned as best as possible. I suspect this problem is caused by specific points on the screen going bad.

Connect to pc

you need a cradle and cable combo, designed specifically for that model. i own three of them. just scour ebay, entering in the specific model name and number, and you'll surely find the parts that you need. you'll probably also need to download microsoft activesync, which is free, and from there, just follow the instructions after installing activesync...

Device Name not unique. This device name is already in use.

the name of the device is only what you want to call it, eg instead of ipaq call it tropflor, it's only a name in which the device is recognised by other devices and for sync purposes, but as in a pc, always back up your contacts and files, as pocket pcs are more likely to crash.

128 bit encription for WEP

Should just be: turn WiFi on, WiFi Manager -- tap Configure -- tap on name of your network, then on Authentication (or Authentication Key). Then set Shared/WEP, uncheck the box "Key is provided automatically", and enter your key. Remember, the iPaq wants the actual key in hexadecimal, not the passphrase. And you'll need to know which of the 4 standard WEP keys the one you're entering is. Good luck.
