Re: HP iPAQ hx4700
It should work out of the box. Silly question - are you sure the wifi is turned on? Can you see a little antenna icon in the upper right hand corner?
I am not really understanding what you mean by "I can get MSN but nothing else". If you can get on that, then you're connected, right?
What site are you trying to go to? If the site isn't mobile compatible, it wont display properly through Internet Explorer, and unfortunately, there aren't updates for IE on these. You can view almost any site with Opera. Download opera mobile on your regular PC, copy the file to the flash card, and install it that way - you don't have to use ActiveSync. Although its a trial, it may be worth buying it after the evaluation period is over if it suits your needs.

This problem is common.
This error message occures when the wireless card does not get an IP address from the wireless router. To get the wireless router to issue the wireless with a new IP address the connection needs to be repaired.
Right click on the wireless icon and click on repair.
If could be that you were unable to reset the router properly. You have to make sure that the router is on while pressing and holding the reset button using a paper clip. the reset button is usually found at the back of the router, then you may have to reconfigure the settings again.
you can also manually access the router page for you to change the settings.
