128 bit encription for WEP

I have spent hours trying to get the 128 bit encryption on my 4700 series. We have Cisco wireless access points here in the hospital and abot 20 of these devices arriving soon for the doctors use. They need access over the wireless net for dictation purposes. Everyone seems to say just enter it. Where is the Key indes used. On the various laptops, I have to enter the first half of the encryption code on the first line, and the second half on the second line. Is something like this necessary on the ipaq. Thanks

Re: 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.

I have accessed my cogeco emails on my Acer tablet but it is not showing any of my emails, also I cannot access the internet

If you can't get emails, and can't get onto the Internet,then you are not connected to a WiFi access point. To connect to a WiFi system, you may need 3 pieces of information:
A username
A password
An encryption key
Once you have successfully linked to a WiFi access point then your tablet will remember the settings until told to forget them.
A lot of the time you may only need the encryption key, and if the tablet detects a WiFi access point then if you tap on that in wireless settings then it will either connect automatically or ask you for some sort of code - the encryption key. If this is not entered correctly then it will return an authentication problem/error. In order to connect you have to have this code.
Some public WiFi access points are not encrypted, and you therefore do not need an encryption key, but these sites are insecure.
I you are trying to use a mobile broadband service you will need an appropriate SIM card in the Iconia and a contract, (monthly pat or pay-as-you-go) including a data allowance from your Service Provider.
You will also need a username and password to get onto your emails on the cogeco website, but presumably you already know these as you probably access your emails from a PC using these anyway.
Finally, if you go to this web page:
Drivers and Manuals
you can download manuals and drivers for a very wide range of Acer products.
There are various ways to select your model but I have found it easiest to use the selection options >Group >Series >Products.
This brings up a page with tabs part way down for
Obviously documents is the one you want for a manual and by clicking on it you can download it to your computer in pdf format to read with Adobe Acrobat Reader and store for future reference.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

Make sure that your device supports the Wifi encryption you are using. As an example, the H4150 only supports 64 or 128 bit WEP encryption.

I have tried and tried and cannot connect to the internet on my dell axim x51. Any solutions?

This depends entirely on how you are connecting to the internet.

If you are using wireless in your house, make sure its not protected with WPA encryption, change the wireless encryption to WEP if you are using encryption. - for wireless wlan you would need a add-on Wireless adapter. if you are using bluetooth, then the settings on the computer - internet connection sharing is probably not turned on.

I can't go into detail now since this is complex and I don't have much information to work from.

this device is not easy or simple to get connected to the internet without connecting it to your computer with a data cable. with a data cable it should work instantly, if not then some settings might need to be changed.

Unlocked SX66 - Can't connect to internet

The first thing to do is make sure that the wireless router allows for the same Network Autentication. Depending on your wireless router you might have to check your user manual, but the trick here is to set the autentication "WPA-TKIP" on your wireless router, then set a custom key for for acces, once that is done, open the Wireless Manager by taping on the little blue anterna next to the bluetooth manager, is on the bottom right corner of your device, chek the "on" box, on the same screen tap once on the "Tools" menu, bottom left of the screen, next tap on  "Network Cards" there you should be able to see the network you want to access, if not, add the name of the network you just changed a few moments ago, if you don;t know the name of the network, go back to you'r wireless router set-up page, and change the pre-set name to something you remember, next select the "Connects to: internet" option", next tap on "Network key" tab at the bottom of the screen, set the Autentication: "WAP-PSK" and Data Encryption to  "TKIP", and finally input the custom network key you created earlier on the router set-up page.
Note: as far as I know there is a diference of the level of secitity the the 2 diferent data encryption type provide, and i think WPA is Older and most new wireless routers have WEP, or WEP 2, but if you live in a residential neiborghood and your router range is say 200 feet you only have to worry about ur immediate neigbors craking the network key using high tech sofware, to get to use ur wireless signal.

Cannot detect wireless connection

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.

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.

Socket disconnecting part 2

I have had similar issues. I cannot offer much help however. I am using the Socket CF 802.11b card on an ad-hoc (peer to peer) network with my desktop (server) and laptop, and right now am having no problems. 3 days ago, nothing would connect. Discovered an issue with one little checkmark in WindowsXP network for my main connection that is shared and firewalled, I believe it was under one of the advanced properties dialogs, but the setting was "enable 802.11p support". After I checked that box, rebooted, and fired up my laptop, I regained a lost connection, and suddenly, out of the blue, the Socket CF 802.11b card that hadn't worked at all for 2 days started working again. Be advised when dealing with Dell tech support....they told me over the phone that I COULD NOT MAKE MY AXIM WORK LIKE THIS. They said I needed to buy an access point/router and related equipment. Not so. I am having difficulty accessing files on the desktop from the Axim, but really don't need to do so anyway. Don't know if any of this helps ya one little bit, but thought I'd throw a response out for ya anyway. And don't forget that Dell tech advice, although typically sound, is NOT always 100% accurate, especially if it is an oriental guy with a heavy accent.... Best of Luck. Sorry to bother you with a useless response if that's what I did here. Hang in there. Sean W.
