Can not figure out how to access the internet with ipaq.
I have been trying to access the internet with my ipaq. Everything in the material with it tells me I can. I have had the "Geek squad" try to figure it out. My brother-in-law is an electrical engineer with a large computer company and extremely high up with them. He can not. My Daughter is finishing college in computers this month - she can not figure it out.
If some one know the secret I would appreciate it. The thing has WiFi, Bluetooth and much more on it but sadly all I can use it for now is solitare and Phone numbers.

Hi, If you haven't yet solved your problem, use an active sync connection throught bluetooth for example. Once the active sync is connected to the device, you can browse the internet using your PDA. For more information please post back.

ask on the HP forum yet, (we are not HP here)
sounds to me (seems) like weak battery
or it programmed to not use WIFI when running on wifi. on bat.
as wifi can suck such at tiny battery dry in minutes.
why not get and old CELL phone and use it and dump this old relic.
Have you tried resetting your iPAQ? You do that by pushing the little button on the side with the stylus. The screen will go blank for a bit, and then windows will restart. I had bought mine used, and when I got it, I had the same problem in that I never got the screen that let me select the wireless network. It fixed mine. Once it is working again, try selecting "View WLAN Networks" again, and you will see a list of networks that it can hear. If the SSID Brodcast is enabled on your wireless access point, you will see your network there. If SSID is not enabled on your WAP, you will need to type in the name of your network before it will find it.
Hope this helps. Sorry it was so late in being posted.
If you want to access the internet thru your ipaq, you should first contact your network service provider to send you the GPRS configuration and settings. From then, you may now enjoy the connectivity of your ipaq.
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.
