I am unsuccessfully trying to connect my ipaq to the internet using a wireless router, but to be honest I don't really know what I am doing.
I have cable broadband & have fitted a wireless cable/dsl broadband router with access points.
The router appears to be working ok & I can access the the setup page OK. My Ipaq is showing a unnamed wi-fi connection available but I cannot connect to it.
I have tried various settings to no avail & ultimately get the message:
'Cannot log on to the wireless network. This network requires a personal certificate to positively identify you'
Any help would be gratefully received.

Re: Connecting a Ipaq RX3715 to a wireless router
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.

To perform a soft-reset (if the device has locked), briefly insert the stylus or a paperclip into the reset hole on the bottom left of the 3715
To perform a hard reset (losing all data!), insert the stylus or a paperclip into the reset hole on the bottom left of the 3715 while holding down the far left and far right of the four main buttons. Information in the iPAQ File Store will not be lost, but data on the Internal memory will be wiped. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
try resetting the router and try connecting
check whts the wireless standards in the router and the ipaq and config according to that for instance if ur router can support b then try entering the setting manually it will work
try entering the correct wireless key
Turn your Linksys router off and back on again, then try connecting on your iPaq again. If that fails, do a soft reset on your iPaq and try again. If that fails, do a hard reset.
Also, do you have any wireless security set up for the router?
Is your router setup for security? For example on your laptop, did you have to enter a SSID & WEP key in order to get connected to your wifi router. Also, see if your router is setup for MAC filtering, may be possible that its blocking your handheld device from connecting. If thats the case, then you would have to do the same steps on your handheld device has you would on a laptop.
The ipaq has no phone-capable speaker system. The speakers in a phone are designed to allow the user, but no others, to hear the conversation. ipaq speakers do not have this capability. Also, the speaker and microphone are on the same end of the system. If HP had intended the ipaq for phone use, they would be higher quality, and on opposite ends of the device.
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.
It's not the iPaq that has the problem. Some sites are just not PDA compatible. I'm sure the new windows mobile 2005 has better web compatibility but I don't know for sure. You can download a shockwave/flash player for windows mobile but I have not seen a java download yet.
Have you been able to connect through your router at home? I'd get that set up and running first. Then doing it on the road will merely be variations on a familiar theme. If you've tried at home but it hasn't worked, let us know something about your home network (what kind of router? using security/encryption?), and about what you've already tried so we can try to help.
