Question about HP iPAQ RX3115 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Can't get dynamic ip address

Okay.. here is the situation: Purchased an HP ipaq rx3115 and used to have WiFi internet working all fine with my home network. Then, I added some program (God knows what) that made the PDA not get an ip address from the router I have. I could manually type in a static ip and do it that way, but when I travel this is cumbersome and would like to have DHCP doing the job. When I take my "broken" PDA to my school it picks up a good IP and works fine. How do I fix the problem at home? Okay, before you respond, I have tried the following already: 1) made sure the router was sensing the PDA's signal and it is. I have MAC filtering for all my WiFi equipment because I don't want to make a security key. 2) have reset, hard and soft for my PDA 3) reset my router multiple of times and set it to have the default values.. which still picks up my PDA but won't give it an IP address - most likely my ROUTER because I can get a dynamic IP address at school. PLEASE HELP!! thanks..

What about your desktop pc? Have you checked the services on it to make sure it is not broadcasting DHCP? Also, think about switching over to Stealth Mode (Non-broadcast SSID) instead of MAC filtering. MAC filtering can be cummbersome and if it is just you, then do away with it.

Can't get my son's hp Mini to connect to our router. Secured or not. It has worked on other routers before.

My guess would be that the 'dynamic' IP address cannot be resolved properly on your home network: try using a Fixed/Hardcoded IP address in TCP/IP Internet Protocol for your son HP Mini. Let me know how you go.

HP iPaq Rx3115 ...Please Help..

It depends what quality you need. If you need top quality you will have to go for something else like a dell axim x50v. This PDA should be ok for watching a movie as long as it is encoded properly, at a low resolution that is.

Using hotspots with my rx3115?

It's the same settings as you would use for your home network. When you are connected and you start Internet Explorer , you will automatically be prompted to sign in or register for an account. Some Hotspots are free, and you will not have to go through this account page.
