Help with IPAQ July 16, 2008 4:25 PM Subscribe
I have an HP iPAQ 2750. Around the same time it was manufactured, lots of aftermarket hardware and software came out with promises to enhance the device. One of those applications was a GPRS/GSM plug in modem (via the CF Card slot) and software from a company called Enfora. The modem was bundled with software from a company called BVRP. There was other software without a modem which also installed phone tools on the PDA from another company called WebToGo.
HP sells the modem from Enfora which it claims is compatible with the iPAQ. But after many tries to install it, it seems ActiveSync 4.0 (which is what the iPAQ came with) was preventing it. I upgraded to ActiveSync 4.5 but still no luck with the Enfora/BVRP software.
I assumed the modem to be generic enough to work with any phone tools software, so I found different phone tools from WebToGo. Their phone tools did load onto the iPAQ. But after lots of calls to TMobile and more onliine chats with HP, I can't get the modem to see the TMobile network - this even after getting TMobile's cell to network number (*99#) and its modem string and web address.
I also thought there might be some issues with Windows Mobile 2003. I tried to upgrade to Windows Mobile 5, but the connection kept dropping. After going through that a few times, I decided the upgrade was more trouble than it's worth. Besides, all of the hardware and software says they work with Pocket PC 2002 and Windows Mobile 2003 anyway and the latter is what the iPAQ came with. So I decided that probably wasn't the problem.
I know I could just buy a smartphone, but I really like the iPAQ. But I don't want to keep carrying an iPAQ and a cell phone around - cluttered. If there are hackers who can break open an iPhone, it seems there should be somebody who can make this work? It seems like I'm almost there. Does anybody have any advice?

Thomson Router rebooting - I am in N.Z. and have the exact same Thomson Wireless Router, TG585v7, Software version 188.8.131.52. My previous D-Link Wireless router never gave me any trouble, as soon as I installed the Thomson, I kept losing connectivity. I could watch it rebooting in front of me, all lights off, restart and reconnect. I complained to my ISP who sent me another - exactly same problem. We were away for a week and it never rebooted once. I started wondering about Wifi devices , we use an HP Ipaq (it won't connect at all to the Thomson but will to other Acess Points) - have turned Ipaq off for days on end to eliminate but Router still rebooting several times a day. My wife has an Apple IPod and it seems "perhaps" it's when that is charging that we have problems. We are working through that isolation now, I'd be interested to know if you have other wireless enabled equipment - could even be a neighbour's unit interfering.

what ip are you referring to? most internet service providers provide dynamic ip addressing to their residential customers and dynamic ip addressing means that your ip address will be changed periodically. Static ip addresses (ip adoes not change) is usually provided for business consumers. as for the speed, if you subscribe to 4Mbps speed package, what it actually means is that you willbe getting UP TO 4Mbps speed. that would explain why your speed goes down. you will not always have 4Mbps.

Type in 192.168.100.1 into your web browser, that should bring you into the modem, check on what your dB levels are.. Cut and paste your output in case this happens again. Your modem will have a log of the disconnects that you can use when talking to Comcast. It sounds like you might have a pwr problem with your dvr. Are they plugged into the same outlet? Are you able to contact Comcast while it is happening? As a workaround, try plugging each into a different outlet. I would open up a trouble ticket with Comcast and have them escalate the problem. If it is a comcast modem, they can bring you another one out.
Dear!!! Error :Hardware failure in port or attached device.
Solution : 1. Check to make sure the correct modem
is selected in the dialer.
2. Make sure there are not multiple
3. Uninstall and reinstall the modem.
4. Make sure that no other programs are
using your modem. Fax software, Supervoice, etc...
5. Ctrl-Alt-Delete, if you see RNAAPP
use your control panel, go to control panel clickon printers and other hardware, then phone and modem options then click on the advanced at the top and a menu should come up with the manufacturer name for the modem it will be high lighted in blue, then write it down and find it on the web. if not just log into the internet select your add hardware and use the install wizard to find the drivers for you and it will down load them for you. XP can be a wonderful program with this type of help.
