Looking for a Wi-Fi card for a Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC


According to http://www.socketmobile.com/pdf/wireless-lan/go-wi-fi_spec.pdf it looks like you have to have Windows Moblie 5 or 6 or Windows CE.

The Axim X5 can only go up to Windows Mobile 2003 (Mobile 5 is the one after this).

My suggestion is sell the REALLY great Socket card and get one that works with your X5 (you have either Pocket PC 2002 or Windows Mobile 2003) If you Ebay search Dell TrueMobile, you'll find the card that works with either.

I need mine too, so it looks like we'll have a bidding war.

Installing San Disk Wireless Lan Card for Dell AXIM 5


Actually the reason why it's saying that is because that card is not compatible with the Dell Axim X5 because if it was you wouldn't get that response. I'm still looking for a Wi-Fi card for mine as well because I ordered the P500 Wi-Fi compact flash card from Dell then come to find out it wasn't compatible with the Axim X5, it was discontinued.

How to connect Axim to internet?


It doesn't come with one, but you can use the CF slot. Just pick up a CF Modem, ethernet card or wireless card (for a wireless network) and you are ready to go.

Axim X5 and he webanwireless


There are a few ways. It depends how and where you want to get online. One way would be to purchase a CF Wi-Fi card, (about $65, made by D-Link, Lynksys or Netgear). This will allow you to access the net via your home or office wireless nework (assuming you have one). The CF Wi-Fi card will also allow you to access the net at any of the numerous public Wi-Fi "hotspots". Airports, cafes, city parks and hotels are the most common public places that provide such access, and the number of such places is growing. There are websites out there that list where such hotspots are located in various cities and states throughout the country. You can also purchase a CF Wireless Modem card from a wireless internet service provider. You will have to subscribe to the service (about $40 to $70 per month), and purchase the modem (about $200 - $300). Make sure that the coverage area is compatible with where you want to acess the net most. There are national companies, but their coverage are seems to be limited to major cities. The last way that I know of would be to purchase a Dial Up Modem CF Card. (Not sure how much they go for, but between $50 and $120 would be a close guess.) This will allow you to connect it to a phone line and dial up the same Internet Provider that you use for your Desktop PC.
