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.

Try a soft reset. If that doesn't work, then do a hard reset, it should reset to the factory default. Your last resort is to reinstall the OS.

HP iPAQ hx4700 Pocket PC


if your PCs connect wireleslly, then I assume you have set up a home network with a router/modem. Sometimes the modem comes combined with a router. If this is the case, then the 4700 has all you need to connect it to this network and access your emails and internet. This is an example of my setup with my 4700... Go to Start > Settings > Connections > Connections > click on Advanced tab at the bottom click on "Select Networks" button Both entries on this page should be set to "My Work Network". Click "OK" > "OK" back to Settings screen. Go back to Today Screen. Now click on the iPaq Wireless icon at bottom right of this screen. If the WiFi button has an 'x' on it then click it to turn it on. A blue light should now come on at the top of your ipaq to indicate that wifi is on. Click on the 'Settings' button You should be able to see your network on this screen - "Configure Wireless Networks" Networks to access should be set to "All Available" Check the box to 'Automatically connect to non-preferred networks' If the Network is available but not connected, then click on it's name. On this next screen you should select next to 'Connects to' - "The Internet" Then click OK If the Network shows 'Available' and not 'Connected' then click and hold on the name of the network and then you can choose 'Connect' Then under 'Network Adapters', on that screen it should say ... My Network card connects to 'Work"
