Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC
After a day of trying to install my wcf12 card (with the message "Unrecognizable card") , finally wcf12 was recognized by Axim and I was able to configure it. I think the problem was in the connection between the desktop and the Axim, somehow it got corrected during my multiple attempts and the drivers were loaded onto the Axim and the card was recognized. But I still have 2 problems. 1). There is no link between the Axim and my network. The link light on the Axim flashes continously and the network status utility shows no link and signal strength zero. I made sure it has the same SSID as the others on the network and the same encryption parameters (128 , same passphrase and the same key-automatic). Still no success . The network icon is there on Axim on the right bottom corner but it is red. 2). Connection/activesync is not consistent. Everytime I turn on/off my desktop ,sometimes it it connected, sometimes it is not.

When using wireless lan with PPC, there are some experience shere with you. 1. You must do an "Reset" after the first time of installing wireless driver into your DELL AXIM. Otherwise, the driver would not work. 2. Microsoft Pocket PC 2002 only can allow one source to access the internet. It can't access internet via the USB and wireless at the same time. Thus, it is more batter way to leave your AXIM alone instead of insert on cradle when you try to access internet via wireless lan. 3. Some of the wireless's CE driver are based on StrongArm, 206MHz, not PXA250, 400MHz. It will got problem when the wireless try to initiate the link between base station and PPC. Try the following step: (i) Make sure you have been install the wireless driver. (ii) Remove your wireless from CF slot. (iii) start->setting->power->processor select "PowerSave" mode and apply it. (iv) Plug wireless into CF slot (v) If you can get an dynamic IP or access internet, you can repet step 3, but select "Auto" mode. Hoping these information can solve your problem.
