Evertime I do a soft re-boot, on completion, the WiFi indicator light starts flashing and the Wifi button turns amber (brown). I try to tap the button but it goes grey for a few moments and then back to amber and I cannot turn it off.
The only way I can turn it off is if, by chance, I go near a Wifi network, it is then detected and I can then see an "I" antenna at the top of the Today screen - I tap it and I can then tap "turn WiFi off".
Is there any other way?
I have not installed the Bios update because I am in Australia and it is not one of the countries listed.
Appreciate your help.

Re: iPaq 6365 WiFi Wont Shut Off
There's a little utility I use (just because it's quicker than the usual iPaq Wireless screen buttons) called WirelessSwitcher.
Maybe this would do the trick for you.

To perform a soft-reset (if the device has locked), briefly insert the stylus or a paperclip into the reset hole on the bottom left of the 3715
To perform a hard reset (losing all data!), insert the stylus or a paperclip into the reset hole on the bottom left of the 3715 while holding down the far left and far right of the four main buttons. Information in the iPAQ File Store will not be lost, but data on the Internal memory will be wiped. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
Hey :), I'd be happy to help. I honestly don't think that you've physcially damaged your Ipaq, so you should probally hard reset your Ipaq. To do this you must hold down the reset button and the power button at the same time for like 5 seconds. This will get rid of data on your pocket pc, but It might solve your Ipaq's problem. Thanks! and I hope this helps, if it doesn't I'd recommend for you call Hp where they will repair it or give you a new one :)
I Also Had The Same Problem. Now I Fixed It. Go To Power In Settings. Click On The Advanced Tab. Uncheck The Box Which Says "Turn Off The Device If Not Used For" Box. This Will Solve The Problem. It Solved Mine. Thereafter Once, My Backlight Did Not Switch On. Fix This By Going Into Backlight Settings And Uncheck The Box Which Says "Turn Off The Backlight If Not Used For" Box. This Will Solve It. Then Soft Reset The Device To Change Settings. To Soft Reset, Find A Small Hole In The Left Hand Side Of The Device. Put Your Stylus In And PRESS ONLY ONCE. If You Keep It Pressed, Your Device Will Hard Reset. Don't Do That. Just Press ONCE.
01) Press and hold down the "Calendar" and "iPAQ Wireless" buttons.
02) While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the "Reset" button/hole on the back of the iPAQ until the screen goes blank.
03) Release the "Calendar" and "iPAQ Wireless" buttons.
04) Press the "Reset" button/hole again (so that it resets/powers on.)
Please perform following steps. Take the back up of data. Clean the battery. Hardware reset.
Perform the Hard reset
1. Press and hold the Answer/Send, Power, and End Call buttons. 2. While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button until the device restarts. 3. When the HP iPAQ restarts, release all of the buttons, and then remove the stylus from the Reset button.
i've never known them not come back on after going off, but have noticed they do switch back on, on their own when the wifi is enabled. when i want mine to stay off i tap the arrows at the top of the screen and select "turn on flight mode" this will then stop the device searching for a network and will shut down. when you want wifi again turn the flight mode of in the same way.
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"
