Hello, i have a hp Hp Ipaq 5455 and want to use a wi-fi connection at home and traveling.I can see the wireless networks and it says connected after i write the secret password that was given to me from...

I would say that either your password is not right either wrong or in the wrong "keyslot"or your hp isn't getting the proper numbers from the router. Since you can see them and connect we can be almost certain there is nothing wrong other than a setting.

Past that a incorrect password or on some wifis incorrect case of letters or wrong position would do exactly this. Basically every time your hp (or any other device) sends data to the wifi it will send the password info. It doesn't need to have the password to see or even connect but to get the data past what is basically a firewall it needs the key which is the password etc. Usually the case doesn't matter for most wifi routers but on some it does all the time and on others it does if they are setup that way. I've been caught by that more than once as case is unusual. To any electronic device Password and password are two totally different things. As well there are normally 4 key slots or positions that password is associated with. You can actually have 4 different pass codes as a result. And again even if the password is the same if it isn't in the right slot then the router will ignore it as it is incorrect. Basically you have to keep trying to enter it in while trying any variations. You can also yell and call it names. Doesn't help but can make you feel a bit better about this irritation ;-)

Last thing is that a lot of networks use what is called DHCP service or Dynamic Host Control Protocol. All that nonsense means is that when you get connected the router assigns the numbers to the device. That is how it is supposed to work. What happens on a few handhelds is that this does not want to work so what you have to do is manually enter in the numbers. You need a ip# (something like, a net mask (usually a gateway number which is the ip of your router (will be something like and then you need the DNS numbers for your ISP which will be sim in layout to the previous examples.Once you enter these in you will be able to connect to the lan and out to the internet. I still use my Palm Lifedrive and it has this issue on some routers. On the ones that I have manually entered them in the network runs faster so it is worth doing.

So you need to keep checking the password and slot (till it hurts) as well as considering putting in the numbers manually. If you need help with that you can reply here and either myself or someone else can assist with that.

Wireless internet

Basicly the wireless router needs to be connected into the internet, then you will be able to connect to it. You need to install the card and make sure it works in your device, then connect into the router and it should work fine.

Can't get dynamic ip address

What about your desktop pc? Have you checked the services on it to make sure it is not broadcasting DHCP? Also, think about switching over to Stealth Mode (Non-broadcast SSID) instead of MAC filtering. MAC filtering can be cummbersome and if it is just you, then do away with it.

The Connectivity Kit will operate under Windows 2000, but only in full-screen mode. It will freeze the display if it is run in a window. You'll need to press to restore it to full-screen mode.

Internet connection at my e830

To configure the Wireless connection you can use the Wifi connection wizard or setup the connection manually. I hope that you have checked your workgroup too. Also you should check if your IP settings are the same at the router and PDA (dynamic and static IP)! If you have some another device connected to the router remember them when you setup the PDA connection! In the end the MAC address of the PDA WLAN card must be saved in the router!
