Because the Palm LifeDrive is somewhat older hardware, it will only connect to a WEP security protocol. It will "see" a WPA secured network, but it cannot connect because the security level options are simply not available on the LD. You will have to go into your router settings and set up WEP as your wireless security. You can easily find on Google how to access your particular brand and model of router's settings.

It sounds like you need to setup the network settings on the palm or the wep or securty key or both.

When it shows the network id tap edit then enter the wep or wpa key if needed, then tap details to get to the screen where you enter the normal network details.

Usually it is just the security key that causes this. Get that code in and you might pop right on.

When searching for wi-fi connection palms blacks

This is hard to say what it is for sure but I would think your problem is your battery needs replacement. The wifi works fine with a good battery but uses much more power than anything else so it can quickly drain an older battery. If it is older than a year or so it might be it. I have a lifedrive that will kill a battery within a few minutes on the wifi. When new I could use it for several hours. If you put it on the charger it should work normally if this is the case.

This sounds like the issue where the LifeDrive is stuck in a loop. You can see how to break the device out of the system loop on the Palm Knowledge Base article (26419) located HERE.

Hope that helps get you up and running again!

Lifedrive wifi

Does the wifi work at all after it resets? Have you applied the level 2 palm srvice pack to the LD? I believe the update changes how the wifi operates. If you go to www.palmone.com and go to the lifedrive page you should see a list of downloads for it. If you click on the 2.0 update there is a description of how to tell if you need this or if it is already installed. You just need to check the version of one file. Download and install the patch and see if that fixes everythng.

If that doesn't fix it you may have a more serious problem that could require replaceing or fixing the LD

Light keep blinking

The Palm OS does 'housekeeping chores', one of which is to tell all of the apps about certain events in case they need to do something during one of those events, even the one on the HD.
