Jornada 680 won't sync over network

Hi, Just got my Avaya WorldCard Silver 802.11b card to work with a Jornada 680 but can't get it to do a sync with my PC over the network. I'd established a partnership with the PC via serial and both "Network Connection" and the PC computername come up in the ActiveSync options on the Jornada. But when I attempt a Connect, the "Connecting to Desktop" window comes up with "PC contacted. Locating connection agent. Please wait...", then shortly disappears without making a connection and no activity on the PC. I've tried this with both ActiveSync and Outlook open on the PC with no effect. I know the Jornada and PC are talking OK over the network because I can ping the Jornada from the PC, and can browse shared directories on the PC from the Jornada using Pocket IE. Only other relevant thing I can think of with regards to the PC is that it's running XP & ActiveSync 3.6. Any ideas?

It is possible, but you need a notebook PC Cards (PCMCIA) that supports Windows CE 2.11. Most Compact Flash wireless LAN cards need Windows CE 3.0.

Jornada 680 "booting cold"


Sounds like a loose connector inside, I had a similar problem after I took my 680 apart to replace a cracked screen. It took a few more dismantlings and re-assemblings until it settled down. You should also check the state of the button cell battery.

Can't synch, only connects as guest


I have had this happen to me at work. You need to backup your Jornada on the computer that works to sync (VERY IMPORTANT) and then hard reset the Jornada (which wipes it clean). Make sure that you put the name back into the Jornada identification (it will be wiped out by the hard reset). Then try to synch on the computer that can't synch except as Guest now. It should sync fine. Then you will need to sync on the computer that works to sync to restore the backup file. Then you will be back to normal. It is a pain. I don't know why it happens but I know this solution worked for me. Let us know if it works for you.
