Question about HP iPAQ RX3100 Pocket PC
My iPAQ will not go connect wireless. I have a wireless router and it worked before. I have completed a "Hard Reset" and still no luck. I get a pop up saying "Unable to connect: You have no modem entries created, and no network card present. Can someone give me an idea. Thanks, Bob Craig
Old mixed with the new. this toy PDA is 14 year old today.
do you own the router or the ISP or phone company?
you mean wifi, wireless has many forms!
the new router is using security that the old IPAQ cant do.
you have 2 choices
1: change THE ROUTER to weak encryption (and risk all other computers using it)
2: or get rid of the IPAQ, they are junk now. old and obsolete and no support, HP retired them, as legacy status.
if your read the manual for the IPAQ, it clearly shows its limits.
WEP 64/128-bitcompliant to IEEE 802.11Compliant to 802.1X (EAP-TLS,PEAP)WPA
see the lack of WPA2?
if you set up your router to be wpa2 only as most folks do for
max security and ISP do,, no IPAQ like this works.
to others reading the battery just pops out on this newer model
then see a white sticker that sticker shows if your PDA
was opted with wifi and or bluetooth, there.
on the pda menus , labeled WIFI
make sure all off is not set to on, on main screen
chapter 7 in the manual covers this.
turn it on
turn off ipaq wifi power saving mode, or it will fail.
the 3 lines in read below
must match your routers setting.
for example min router has WEP turned off so i cant get hacked.
wep is no longer secure.
it can connect
but the rules are very restrictedhttps://www.manualslib.com/download/850185/Hp-Ipaq-Rx3000-Series.htmldu,

SOURCE: Rx3115 locking up
To execute a hard boot on the iPAQ rx3115, the manual says to "while pressing the two outside buttons on front of iPAQ, press the recessed reset button on bottom." Hope it Helps... Wirzan

SOURCE: no wireless
you have to renew the ip address.the easiest way to do this is restart the computer then try entering your net key.ALSO if you use a standard ethernet cable the computer may be trying to connect to the internet through that.what you want to do is disable the LAN connection in your network connections window and right click on the wireless connection icon and click REPAIR,this will renew your IP address also.If you do not know how to get to these settings go to START/ CONTROL PANEL/NETWORK CONNECTIONS then right click on your wireless connection then click repair.While your in that same window you can right click the LAN connection and disable it.To enable it simply right click the icon again and click enable.
