Re: WiFi Cards and Dell

WiFi cards connect to a Network through a Wireless Access Point (WAP). The WAP in my house is actually a router. I bought it for about $120, and then bought a Type II PCICMA WiFi card for my laptop. My WAP connects to my cable modem, and I have hard wires from the router going to two computers. My laptop accesses via WAP, and so in good weather, my back yard is my "home office." That WiFi card is a very busy device. It has a radio transmitter/receiver in it, as well as some low-level encription device. I have my WAP set to sync with encryption to any wireless device, and then just for laffs, I have the WAP set to sync only with cards that have particular MAC (i.e, hard-encoded) addresses. Nobody's swiping my connection! When I get my Axim, I'm going to get a WiFi that fits into the CompactFlash slot. I'll have to register it with my WAP, but then I can access the Internet in my back yard with the Axim, too. I'll also have a second configuration stored so that when I visit my favorate coffee shop, I can connect to its WAP, too. This stuff is using the 802.11b standard. If available, I may get a CF 802.11g WiFi. However, the 802.11 "a" and "g" standards have not made much inroads in the commercial and private "hot spot" worlds yet, and a typical card is about $100. I'm likely to get tired of the Axim itself before I'll feel a need to upgrade the card.

I want to connect to my wireless Internet connection


If everything is working as it should. All you have to do is turn onyour Wi-Fi. You will then see a popup asking you if you would like toconnect.

You may need to add a compact flash wireless card:

Confused about the WiFi on X5


It does NOT have integrated WiFi, you will have to buy a compact-flash card, the Linksys WCF12 works perfectly in mine.

Secure Digital Wireless card?


No. The secure digital on the Axim only supports memory cards. If you want to use anything else it will have to be for the cf in the Axim. Devices for wifi, bluetooth, and modems are more readily available for cf and are lower priced at the moment too.

Pocket PC e400 en Sandisk WiFi


I have bought the Bluetooth Option Part for my e400. It was an "PC Bluetooth SD Card2". In the specs of the Bluetooth Card is an SD/IO enabled SD Slot required for the Card. So I think your Wifi will also work.
