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.

Turn off the laptop, unplug, remove battery, plug in. Push and hold the reset button for 30 seconds or so on the Netgear to reset to default settings. Boot laptop, when boot is complete, Open Network and Sharing Center, click on Manage Wireless networks, remove your OLD wireless network. Close Network and Sharing Center. In your Tray Notification Area , left click on the network icon, select unsecured Netgear Wireless Network. When connected, reconfigure SSID and Security Password.
I think you should check the wireless settings of the router netgear router and the iPad . Do you have any other wireless computer or device in the network? Can you connect any other computer or device to the wireless network?
If your wireless network is secured then make sure that you have the correct network key.
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.
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.
