In the simplest way possible, how do I go about getting internet access on my iPAQ? I have a wireless network available at home and at work, can my iPAQ connect to this as is or do I need to do something to it to give it that capability.

How do you know your notebook is connected to your wifi AP? Did you try pinging the gateway? If not, open your command window & type "ping 192.168.0.1" (put in your own gateway address.) If you get replies, then ping something outside of your network: "ping 184.108.40.206" (this is a verizon dns server). If you get replies, then "ping yahoo.com". If it does not fail at any of the above steps, you don't have a connectivity problem. If you fail any of the above, then report back & we'll continue the troubleshooting.
Open the router control panel using Internet Explorer. Open wireless page and look for security option. Simplest security measure is setting up a 64b wep encription key it is made of 10 exadecimal numbers (0..9-A..F). It is still a good option to secure home based network. Refer to the router manual for information on how to open the router control panel using internet explorer. Remember to save all changes made to the router before restarting it.
always start with the simplest answer first so make sure you have WiFi turned on.
Think back, have you changed the wireless security on your router? If so you may need to re-enter the network details or add your iPAQ's MAC address to the access control list on the router.
In the bottom right-hand corner of the home screen you should have a small HP Wireless symbol, if you tap it you should get your HP Wireless control panel on screen and can 1: turn WiFi on and off, 2: manually enter the WiFi network details and 3: search for WiFi networks in range.
This problem seems to be with the wireless network itself. Perhaps it's not connected to the Internet even though you are connected to the lan. Make sure your default gateway setting is the same as that of the lan. If there is lan administrator, obatin the settings you should have from that person.
First, you have to be sure your ipaq has wi-fi feature is on and you can check on network connectivity option for any wrong setup there. According to your information, your ipaq is not recognized by your router and I agreed that your router is working normally. Try to reboot your ipaq and be sure to get wi-fi to turn on and try to connect it again. I have my Dell Axim also used Windows Mobile like Ipaq and it connected easily with no issue. The message in your to show me that you need first to identify your ipaq before you you can get it to connect to your network. I hope this help.
if your PCs connect wireleslly, then I assume you have set up a home network with a router/modem. Sometimes the modem comes combined with a router.
If this is the case, then the 4700 has all you need to connect it to this network and access your emails and internet.
This is an example of my setup with my 4700...
Go to Start > Settings > Connections > Connections >
click on Advanced tab at the bottom
click on "Select Networks" button
Both entries on this page should be set to "My Work Network".
Click "OK" > "OK" back to Settings screen.
Go back to Today Screen.
Now click on the iPaq Wireless icon at bottom right of this screen.
If the WiFi button has an 'x' on it then click it to turn it on. A blue light should now come on at the top of your ipaq to indicate that wifi is on.
Click on the 'Settings' button
You should be able to see your network on this screen - "Configure Wireless Networks"
Networks to access should be set to "All Available"
Check the box to 'Automatically connect to non-preferred networks'
If the Network is available but not connected, then click on it's name.
On this next screen you should select next to 'Connects to' - "The Internet"
Then click OK
If the Network shows 'Available' and not 'Connected' then click and hold on the name of the network and then you can choose 'Connect'
Then under 'Network Adapters', on that screen it should say ...
My Network card connects to 'Work"
