Dell axim x51 will connect to to wifi hotspot i need detailed instructions to get it to work


Hi, follow the steps found in your owners manual. That can be downloaded at this link.
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/aximx51/en/om/om_en.pdf

Using Wi-Fi (802.11b)
Wi-Fi provides your device access to WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network.)
Short for wireless fidelity, Wi-Fi refers to any type of 802.11 network,
whether 802.11b, 802.11a, or dual-band. Wi-Fi certified products from
different manufacturers are interoperable.
NOTE: Mid and High configurations of the Axim have Wi-Fi 802.11b built in and the
drivers factory installed. For a Low configuration device, you must purchase the
802.11b SD card, insert it in your device, and load the drivers.
NOTE: The default Wireless Networking Client utility for your device is the
Dell WLAN utility. The following configuration steps are for the Dell WLAN utility.
Configure wireless networking for your device in one of the following
scenarios:
• Network Card is set up
• Wireless Network is broadcasting SSID
• Wireless Network is not broadcasting SSID
If the Network Card is Set Up
Normally the internal wireless card is already set up. There are times when
you must choose the network card. On the Axim X51/X51v configurations
that have built-in wireless, the network card is associated with the enabled
wireless. If wireless is not enabled or you are using a socket card for
wireless connection, then choose the network card:
1 Tap Start → Settings → Connections.
2 Tap Network Cards.
3 Choose either Internet or Work from the menu.
4 Choose the network card to connect to the network. For the
Axim X51/X51v with built-in wireless, choose Dell Axim X51/X51v
WLAN Wireless Adapter.
5 Choose whether the network card assigns an IP address or receives an
IP address automatically.
6 Enter the Server IP addresses if required and tap OK.
If the Wireless Network is Broadcasting SSID
1 Press the wireless button to enable wireless capability. The green LED
in the right top corner of the device indicates that the wireless
is functional.
2 Tap Start → Settings → Connections.
3 To add, edit, or delete a profile, select the corresponding action and
tap Network Cards.
4 In the Configure Wireless Networks window, select one of the available
network names and tap OK.

If the Wireless Network is Not Broadcasting SSID
The Configure Wireless Networks window only shows wireless networks
that broadcast a Network Name (SSID) and those that have been added.
Add the network if it is not listed. Contact your network administrator for
the following information:
• SSID (network name)
• Authentication
• Data Encryption
• Keys (if the key is not provided automatically)
• Log in if necessary
To configure the wireless network:
1 From the Configure Wireless Networks window, tap Add New.
2 Provide the Network Name (SSID).
3 Select either Internet or Work in the Connects To box.
• Selecting Internet allows you to connect to your network but you
will have to manually start a VPN connection, if needed.
• Selecting Work automatically starts a VPN connection any time
you connect to the network.
• If you are having trouble connecting to your network, change the
Connects To box to Internet.
4 Tap the Network Key tab.
5 Enter the Authentication and Data Encryption information. If a key is
required, enter the network key.
6 Select the 802.1x tab.
7 The Authentication and Data Encryption chosen on the previous
screen determines whether this screen is available. If available choose
the EAP type used on the network.
8 Tap OK.
9 If more than one network is listed, tap and hold the stylus on the
network name you want to connect to. A pop-up menu appears.
Tap Connect. After a few seconds you should see Connected next to
the wireless network you selected.
Thank you,
lee

Wireless card wn5301a not working. installed in an xp machine 1.7GHz P4, 1G ram can see wireless networks & allows me to enter network key, but fails to connect


Is this a new card you've installed or have you reinstalled the OS?

First verify that the card is enabled. Go to control panel, network connections and select wireless. If the button says Enable, click it and your card should communicate.

If there's no wireless setup to enable check the driver:

Go to control panel, select system, hardware, device manager, network adapters and select your wireless card. Then run the troubleshooter to get the card to work.

If the hardware isn't there to be selected, you don't have a driver installed for that card. Go out to the manufacturer's website and install it.

I have the card installed and drivers loaded but the card still wont pickup the wireless networks in the area


Maybe the networks are not broadcasting, and are hidden. Also you may not be close enough to them, the most common wireless routers only extend signal 500ft. Test and confirm by visiting a free local wifi hotspot or known broadcasting wireless network.

Wireless not working


First make sure the Wireless LAN card driver is installed. Then go to device manager and make sure the Wireless LAN card is enabled. If not, right click on the Wireless LAN card icon and select enable. Once that is done you should be able to search for wireless networks. If a wireless router is not broadcasting the SSID for the wireless network, the Wireless LAN card will not be able to locate the network during the search. If that is the case, you will need to set up the connection manually. If you can see the correct wireless network during the search but still can't connect to the network, it may not be an open network, so make sure you have the correct security settings for the network you want to connect to. If you did not set up the wireless network, you will need to get the security information from the network administrator.
