Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Connectivity/activesync and network issues

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.

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.

Dell axim x30


HI You have two ways: 1) Install the ActiveSync (Version 4.2 is recommended) PC Software with your PC first Next, you connect your Axim to your PC. Then you install the software or game into your PC. it will also install into your Axim automatically thru Sync process. 2) Or install the software or games into your External SD Memory card thru USB SD Card reader. Then put your sd memory card into your Axim and run the software or game. The 2GB or 4GB SD Card is reccommended since the game or software sometime is huge. I hope it is help. Regards, pingping

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

Restoring Backup to New Axim


The backup utility included on your Dell Handheld will backup your data to a storage card. You can restore on your replacement handheld from that storage card. From your Host PC, you can go to Tools | Backup/Restore and do a backup to the Host PC, and you can then restore after syncing the replacement handheld for the first time.

Do 802.11b CF Cards Work on Casio E-115?


My experience with Linksys support has been one of horror. It relates to a different product - 2 port lan printer server. I never got it to work right & it is gathering dust. Perhaps when I have time I will try it out with WinXP with native support if it is built in. Although a manufacturer may claim on his site that a particular device supports WinCE 3.0 on mips cpu you have hake it with a ton of salt. There have been some threads on this boards for the specific device you mention & suggest you contact the concerned persons directly for their opinion & experience. I have found DLink to be far more accurate in its claims than LinkSys.
