Question about Dell Axim X51v Pocket PC

Will not stop scanning for networks...

I'm trying to connect to my home network, and in the WLAN utility it says it has a good signal, but it will not stop scanning the network. I've already entered in the network password, the odyssey setting is off, and I've tried disabling/enabling the WLAN power. I don't know what else there is to do. Any help would be appreciated.

    I figured it out. Turns out I needed to enable a G and B signal on my router. That ended up doing the trick.

One other issue I always encounter is that I have to disable both of the "power conservation" settings that would allow the Axim to shut off the WLAN radio when the battery goes low. Having them enabled (which happens by default) seems to keep my Axim from locking onto our WiFi. When I disable them, I get an immediate strong connection.

You can find these settings under the Dell WLAN ultility.

    Sorry, I did not notice before that you did try that.

I cannot enable wlan. how do I turn it on

Check that you have the wifi network drivers installed. Go to control panel and open hardware and sound, under devices and printers click device manager. Look for network adapters, expand the menu and check that you have a wifi adapter installed. If not you will need to visit your pc makers support website and download a driver.

Cant connect internet, always try again

Hello katlenternal,
What you are having seems to a common issue with the Nokia C3. I had one and I had the same issue when I first got it. Unfortunately I had to keep trying several times before it connected. But when I finally got it to work, I use the same pattern when trying to connect. First off make sure you are trying to connect with wifi. At the home screen, click down and scroll through until you get WLAN and select it. Go to avaliable WLAN and find the network you want to connect to. Make sure the signal is strong. Once you click it, enter the password and it should say you are connected. Exit back out to the home screen. Go to menu and go to internet. Click on Home, and it usually it ask's search WLAN. So I go through the same process as mentioned earlier. Connect to your wifi network. Once connected try reloading again. Hopefully this should work. Unfortunately you will have to keep trying over and over if it does not work. It will work, you just got to be patient. Good luck.

Sir am trying to coneect my samsung GT-S5233W to WLAN & its all ways gieing me disconnected or Authentication failed please need help if am doin some thing wrong appreciate your kind reply

Before trying to connect to the WLAN

get the SSiD ( Network Name )

Password ( WEP /WPA )

And then try connecting to the network


If it is your home network then , Change the Security to 64 - Bit WEP

And change the Wireless Channel to ' 6 '

Change the network Name into a much simpler one ( without spaces )

Scan and connect to this network

Cant connect wirelessly as i cant locate AOSS button

AOSS is what you would see on some high end routers. if your router doesn't support this method or have this button you can't set up your ps3 using it.

The PS3 does not have an AOSS button. AOSS (AirStation OneTouch Secure System) is used for wireless setup of devices for your network. Your router will have a button on it for this. If it does not then it more than likely does not have the ability to set devices up in this manner.

1)To use this set up for the PS3 go to Settings>Network Settings> Internet Connection Setting> (Method) Custom> (Select Connection Method) Wireless- (WLAN2_bing.gif Setting) Auto - AOSS. At this point the PS3 will tell you to push the button on the router and that you have two minutes or else the attempt to connect will stop.

Again this only works if your router has this button. and it is not found on your ps3

so you'll need to set it up differently. if your home is set up with wireless router and your computers are connected online wirelessly read along....

JUST MAKE SURE YOU DO HAVE A WIRELESS HOME NETWORK... it definitely wont work if you don't have a wireless setup and u are trying to connect wirelessly. people overlook this no brainer.

1) go to Settings
2) Network Settings
3) Internet Connection Setting. confirm on "O.K."
4) easy *it may or may not give you a message reading "checking network configuration"
5) wireless

from this point on you need to know few things about your network.....

6) scan -- once scanned it'll give you other wirelss access point for you home network and some other near your home along with few information such as SSID (which is what you set your network to be -- i.e. "the jones" or "linksys" or "summer home" or "my connection" etc etc) SECURITY (this is the password you set up your network with) SIGNAL STRENGHT (usually your network will be the strongest among your neighbors since you are closer to your router)
7) highlight your network and press x . (you should know what it is) selecting on the other network will probably not do you any good since it'll probably be all locked with password and such and so should yours be.
8) SSID which means service set identifier basically mean the name of your network. if your home network is set up with security and password your home network will not show up under SSID (this is one of the things you need to know about your home network)
9) on WLAN SECURITY SETTING page (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up) -- most people i deal with have a WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK security password yours may be different so choose the one that you used.
10) WPA KEY - which basically means password. input the password you used to set up your home network (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up)
**it'll give you "checking network configuration"
11) if you input all the correct info you should get the "setting list" screen
12) press "X" to save the setting
13) do the connection test and if all things were entered correctly you should have success.

all this seems complicated just reading but if you follow it step by step its easy. you just need to know the name of your home network, the home network security setting, and the password of your home network.

Notebook won't connect to network

1) Verify if Wi-Fi WLAN interface of your notebook is OK.
1a) Check whether HW switch is ON and the wireless system service is running.
1b) Switch on the WLAN Access Point (router) SSID broadcasting.
1c) Scan WLAN networks by the notebook. Can you see your home WLAN? If not, there is HW or SW problem in your wireless adapter probably. If WLAN is visible, continue by next steps.

2) Remove all WLAN security on both sides (AP and notebook): Authentication = none/open, encrytption = none.
3) Activate DHCP server in the router and set the dynamic IP assigning on WLAN notebook interface.
4) Select your home WLAN SSID in the list and try to connect.
5) Wait and check status. Is WLAN connected? Does obtain the notebook an IP address?
6) In success case set the WLAN security.

Wireless signal keeps dropping/dissapearing

Check my tip
Using Router and Wlan adapter from different brand (Dynex + Belkin) is sometime calling for trouble: you must configure both to be sure to be on same standard (or change Both).
I'm using Netgear + Belkin and tune is not easy
On router config check radio power, reduce the used standard (B/G A/N) to the only one used by Belkin adapter (N).
Be sure you removed Windows zero wireless configuration (= use windows to manage my connection= OFF)
edit your belking wireless networking utility to automatic reconnect:

try downgrading to G standard from router side
Check your network connection plugging your laptop to router via lan cable.and check network params (DHCP DNS etc.).
Then check wlan connection near router, if you experience wlan drops only when far from router, find any possible interferences source (Microwave, cordless, remote) remove it or be ware you cannot have wlan when your wave is working.

Wi-fi PDA connectivity problem

First, restart your pda by using your stylus and pressing the pin-hole sized button on the back of the PDA. There are sometimes a couple of different reasons why the pda wont recognize the network. Main Reason: Make sure you are at the home screen... Tap the wifi icon on the lower right corner of the pda. T hen make sure that the WLAN power is turned ON. Press the setting button. If you see your network in the list, tap on it. It should bring up a network configuration window. Make sure it says it connect to "The Internet". Then tap on the "Network Key" tab at the bottom of window. If you have no security settings on your belkin router, make sure Authentication is set to Open and Data Encryption is set to "Disabled". Then press "OK". That should Be it!!!! Let me know if this way doesnt work, or if something doesnt make sence!
