Question about Dell Axim X50 Pocket PC

Wireless connection problem

Cannot connect to my Netgear WPN284 wireless router with my axim x50. My axim shows the Netgear wireless network, but all it will do when I try to connect is it says Connecting and thats as far as it goes. I also have a new IPAQ that connects no problem to this router. Why won't the Dell connect? I've compared the settings of the two devices and they look identical. The Axim has Windows Mobile 2003 whereas the Ipaq has Windows Mobile 5, does this have anything to do with it? Or is there something on the router that I need to change. Thanks in advance for any help I can get.

    My Dell Axim won't connect to most networks I've tried it on. It doesn't seem to matter if they are data encrypted or not, and if by some miracle it should connect everytime I try to go to a webpage I get a "cannot display page" message.

How to connect iPad to Wireless network

Had dell axim51 for years...never was able to connect to wireless or any internet

The way to connect to the internet with you Axim is dependant on the wireless router setup.

for instace if the wireless is set up for WEP encryption there is a ( I think) about 8-10 hex chacters(0-9, A-F) that needs to be entered to connect. You will need to find these on your router.

Other system that are not protected should have no problems. connecting
hit the broken bars and the lower right corner, then hit the turn on button, then click on the site tab, this hould show you what networks are available. It will tell you if it is protected or is an open network.

This unit will only connect to 802.11 B wireless networks.

I can't find the password for my network, so do I need to reset the password? Once I get the password, how do I then get my laptop on the network?

I can not connect to NETGEAR, but it shows up on the network list.

You need to configure your wireless card in the computer/laptop with the Netgear's wireless settings eg the SSID and the encryption settings etc. so the computer/laptop can connect to the Netgear wireless router.
To configure the wireless router and the wireless card in the computer/laptop and secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Just configure the wireless settings your laptop. Go to Network Connections > Right-click on Wireless Network > Properties. Go to Wireless Network tab and look for Preferred Networks. Just remove all of them and click OK.

Now, On the Network Connections, right-click on Wireless Network Connection > View Available Wireless Networks.

Now if your wireless network is not showing, you need to change the wireless channel of your router by accessing the router's setup page using your wired computer.
