Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Confused about the WiFi on X5

Base on what I've read, I do need to purchase another WiFi CF card for my X5 300 PDA, however, from the advertisment and three Dell Sales person, they told me this PDA has already intergrated a WiFi function, which means I do not need to purchase anything else to connect to my WiFi AP. Which one is right?

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

Can't install drivers for WIFI card

I purchased a VeriFone 11 Mbps 802.11b Wireless Compact Flash Adapter card for my Axim X5. I put the disc and the wifi card in my laptop and I can get on the internet. But can't seem to get it going in the Axim. It always reads "Unrecognized Card". Tried ActiveSynce and putting the drivers on a different Flash card. No luck..

Can I use Standard 4G or 8G SD or Cf cards in a Dell Axim X5?

SD cards must be SD not SDHC, there is not an SDHC driver for the X5. You can find regular SD cards up to 4G.

CF is no problem, all flash based CF cards will work. Microdrives can be problematic.

Make sure that you go into MAP data and select this chart as the map info. You might just be using the internal base map right now.

PDA internet

You do not need the card slot for internet, you can put a memory card in there to store your data.
The PDA supports Wifi, so it is able to connect to a wireless network, as long as it is in range and it is allowed to access the network.
I don't know if you've got the manual. Anyway, you can find it here.
How to make a connection is explained in section 10, under 'Creating an ethernet connection'. I think a network card is already installed in your PDA.

You can manage email by using the pre-installed Microsoft Outlook. How to use this is also explained in the manual, in section 6.

If you need any further help, just post your question.

Internet connection

For x5, you will need either cf wifi card or sd wifi card. If wifi network hotspot is free and internet access is allowed (check with your college's network administrator for information), all you need is be in the range, turn the wifi on and connect to it (there maybe several security settings you have to do on the axim and these can also be obtained from network admin). For paid hotspot, you will be redirected to enter username and password when you ty to access internet.

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.
