Re: How to connect to internet

You have two possibilities to connect your PDA to internet. First one is to use connection of your PC or Notebook. Check please connection settings under Start>Settings>Connections. If you want to make automatically connection to Internet, use first option. Under “Modify” you have possibility to create new connection. Did you already try to make connection like this? Look on http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/help/pocketpc/ossupport.aspx There you can find lots of useful information how to connect PDA to Internet. If you want to make connection using Bluetooth, look at https://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com . There you can find Bluetooth SD Card 2 which you need for Bluetooth connection.

I have this pocket pc and i wnat to know if i can


Unfortunately, I think you are out of luck here. As far as I know, the e350 is not Wi-Fi enabled. Besides, its SDIO interface seems to be kinda proprietary, i.e.it is a subset of the SDIO standards. I don't know any Wi-Fi SD cards which would work with it. If Wi-Fi connection is a must for you, I'm afraid you will have to switch to a new phone, which either has built in Wi-Fi, or, at least, has a fully featured SDIO interface.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.
Regards, Carlos

Connect to internet?


This answer assumes that the reader is already using their SD slot and wish to use another way to connect to the internet. I'm going to show you how to connect a USB Bluetooth dongle using the Toshiba e350 USB host cable. After that you can choose to share a computer internet connection via ActiveSync/WMDC or use BT DUN and a wireless phone with existing internet plan.

Windows based PC software (only needed for ActiveSync based internet sharing):
ActiveSync or WMDC
Toshiba PC Bluetooth stack 7.10.04 (or latest version for your operating system, I'm using Windows 7)
PC Hardware:
Super Mini Bluetooth 2.0 Adapter Dongle (mine was VID 0A12 PID 0001 Broadcom BCM2045 "CSR" based)

WM2003 PPC software:
Zeno USB Host Drivers v6.0a
Toshiba PDA Bluetooth stack 4.01 (filename bltstk-401-en.zip)
WM2003 registry editor (TaskMgrv2.9_WM2003SE.zip is a free task manager and registry editor, very cool)
Opera Mobile 8.65 (optional)
WM2003 PPC Hardware:
Toshiba USB host cable
Super Mini Bluetooth 2.0 Adapter Dongle (mine was VID 0A12 PID 0001 Broadcom BCM2045 "CSR" based)
2 or 4Gig SD card (for e350)

I'm going to target a Windows 7 PC with USB Bluetooth adapter, Windows Mobile Device Cener (WMDC), and an already partnered and synced Toshiba e350/355. The reader should already have a 2Gig SD card in the e350; remember WM2003 doesn't support SDHC. Any software to be installed onto the device should be done through ActiveSync Add/Remove and should not be installed to the default internal memory, but instead to the SD card.

Let's start by loading the e350 software. Install the Zeno Host drivers, followed by the Toshiba 4.01 stack. There is a newer version of this stack but it didn't work for me, so find the older bltstk-401-en.zip. The registry editor is needed for ActiveSync internet connection sharing but optional for BlueTooth Dial-up Networking (BT DUN). I'd recommend installing Opera Mobile as well. Be sure to press the reset button on the back of the e350 when done. You may now connect the USB host cable with Bluetooth adapter.

On the Windows PC connect your Bluetooth adapter and install the Toshiba PC bluetooth stack. Power up the e350 and, after a short time, there should be a wireless icon in the lower right hand corner of the main window. Back to the Windows PC, double click the Bluetooth icon in the task tray and you should be prompted to create a new connection. After awhile it should recognize your Pocket PC. If at any time you are prompted to insert a password for secure connectivity, write down a number (preferably 8 or more digits) and type it in. It will probably ask on the Windows PC first but once you continue immediately check your e350 since it will now prompt for the same password. Once it has been entered in both devices they are now "paired".

Tap the wireless icon on Pocket PC then Bluetooth Settings. Tap the magnifying glass to search for connections, your PC should already be listed as a remote device. Tap and hold over the name of your PC in the upper portion of the window and select Update Service. At least one COM port should be listed in the lower window. Tap and hold over it's name, then tap connection registration.

On the Windows PC open WMDC and select Connection Settings. Change the "Allow connections to one of the following:" drop down to the COM port listed on your device and be sure it's checked. The other settings should be default.

On the Pocket PC tap ok to close Bluetooth settings then tap Start > Programs > Bluetooth Folder > Bluetooth Connection. This will initiate an ActiveSync session and, if everything has gone well, it should connect, perform a sync then immediately disconnect. I have a problem with the immediately disconnect part, that's where the registry editor comes in. Using your preferred registry editor locate the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TOSHIBA\Bluetooth\DeviceProperty\Mode\ActiveSync\AutoDisconnect key. It's default value shoule be 1 but we want to change it to 0 thereby preventing ActiveSync from disconnecting after it sucessfully syncs.

With that done you'll probably need to reset the e350 again. At this point, because ActiveSync is set to share the computer internet connection by default, the next time you connect you should have internet access. Open your preferred web browser and check. When you are done with the internet, tap Start > ActiveSync and the Stop button. In Windows 7 as long as I'm connected I can see the Pocket PC in Windows Explorer as if it were an external drive. This makes it very easy to copy files back and forth wirelessly. Initially I set up a bridged PAN connection but, to be honest, ActiveSync works much better all around.

For BT DUN you'll need a properly configured and enabled Cell Phone with bluetooth DUN capabilities. Simply make the phone "visible" and search for it as you did the Windows PC. Pair with the phone, Update Service and register Dial-Up Networking. Tap Start > Settings > Connections tab > Connections > Add a new modem connection (Tasks tab). Enter a name for the connection and choose Bluetooth Card as the modem, then set the dial-up number, User Name, and Password from your Cell Provider. On the Advanced tab (next to Tasks tab) you may want to tap Select Networks to verify "Programs that automatically connect to the Internet should connect using:" My ISP.

You can set up ActiveSync Internet sharing along side BT DUN. When ActiveSync is connected it will automatically be the source internet connection. When disconnected, the e350 will automatically attempt to use the BT DUN connection instead.

Why not use the default Microsoft BT stack on the PC? It doesn't publish any real services, just a COM port that I never got to work. The Toshiba BT stack does have a 30 day warning so you might need to fix that.

For me the total cost of setup was about $30. The host cable was $15, the SD card $10, and the USB BT dongles were $2 apiece.

Hi, I have an Acer N35 pocket PC and want to configure it so that I can connect to the internet using my N85 phone as a modem. How can this be done? Thanks mark


Get to the control panel. Choose network & internet connection - network connections - create a new connection (a box will open) - connect to the internet - set up my connection manually - connect using a broadband connection that requires a username and password and then follow further prompts...You should see the mobile internet icon on network connections or at your desktop (shortcut). If this doesn't help, refer to your phone service provider or its user manual. Hope this helps...

PC 2003 for e350


Microsoft recently introduced Windows Mobile 2003, which is the latest upgrade to the Pocket PC's operating system and built-in applications. The previous version of this software was referred to as "Pocket PC 3.0" or sometimes as "Pocket PC 2002" (for the year it was released). But the new naming scheme for all of the software built into the Pocket PC is meant to emphasize the relationship between the mobile device and Windows, Microsoft's classic brand. Unless otherwise indicated, whenever I refer to a Pocket PC in this article, I mean a device running Windows Mobile 2003. Not all of the features listed in this article are available for all Windows Mobile 2003 devices since some of these features require additional hardware such as a Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or a keyboard. Along with Windows Mobile 2003, Microsoft released ActiveSync 3.7, an upgrade to the software used to synchronize data between the Pocket PC and the desktop PC. This article focuses on the new software from the perspective of an end-user—the improvements that make using a Pocket PC an easier, more enjoyable experience. In summary, Microsoft improved the operating system, enhanced communications capabilities, added some useful features to some standard applications, and included a new multimedia application and one new game. Windows Mobile 2003 uses the Windows CE 4.2 OS One of the major changes, and one that may not be obvious to the end user, is that Windows Mobile 2003 uses the new Windows CE 4.2 operating system. Previous versions of the Pocket PC used Windows CE 3.0. The 4.2 OS seems to be more efficient than the previous versions. Windows CE 4.2 also supports Internet Protocol version 6.0 (IPv6), which is being used now in Japan and will soon make its way to this country and the rest of the world. This will ensure that Pocket PC users are able to connect to the next generation of the Internet using the current standards. Added support for built-in and add-on keyboards Recognizing the success of add-on keyboards and the desire of some manufacturers to develop units with keyboards built in, Microsoft enhanced keyboard support in Windows Mobile 2003. When a Pocket PC with the new OS detects a keyboard (built-in or added), it automatically enables "menu mnemonics" (those underlined visual hints in a menu that tell you which keys to press). It also enables "Auto Menu Accelerators" (chorded keys such as Control-C for copy) so you can navigate even faster. On Pocket PCs with an integrated keyboard, navigation and application keys allow you to launch and move around in applications. Finally, the addition of the "SYM" key makes it easier to enter accented characters for foreign languages. Enhanced communications Windows Mobile 2003 makes the setting up of communications a lot easier. Plug in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a wired modem, or turn on your LAN connection and a "wizard" pops up to walk you through the process of configuring th

HP iPAQ hx4700 Pocket PC


if your PCs connect wireleslly, then I assume you have set up a home network with a router/modem. Sometimes the modem comes combined with a router. If this is the case, then the 4700 has all you need to connect it to this network and access your emails and internet. This is an example of my setup with my 4700... Go to Start > Settings > Connections > Connections > click on Advanced tab at the bottom click on "Select Networks" button Both entries on this page should be set to "My Work Network". Click "OK" > "OK" back to Settings screen. Go back to Today Screen. Now click on the iPaq Wireless icon at bottom right of this screen. If the WiFi button has an 'x' on it then click it to turn it on. A blue light should now come on at the top of your ipaq to indicate that wifi is on. Click on the 'Settings' button You should be able to see your network on this screen - "Configure Wireless Networks" Networks to access should be set to "All Available" Check the box to 'Automatically connect to non-preferred networks' If the Network is available but not connected, then click on it's name. On this next screen you should select next to 'Connects to' - "The Internet" Then click OK If the Network shows 'Available' and not 'Connected' then click and hold on the name of the network and then you can choose 'Connect' Then under 'Network Adapters', on that screen it should say ... My Network card connects to 'Work"
