Re: Cannot start communications with the desktop computer
I have connected XP machine with Active Synch 3.1 to a wide range of E series Cassiopeias including E-15.
The installation on XP is different from all previous versions of Windows.
Without installing Active Synch you have to connect the switched on device to your PC & let XP find the device & install its own internal driver/service. Reboot the PC.
Next install Active Synch - any version which should now find your device & start the service & establish your connection.

Well - if your PDA runs CE 2.11, it should install. Try downloading specific CAB file from Linksys's website for the MIPS processor (E-15 uses VR4111). If you have Linksys WCF11 card, go to http://linksys.com/support/support.asp?spid=71
If setup still doesn't work - copy a MIPS CAB file to your Casio via ActiveSync and run it from there.
However, even after you install it - you might face problems. I still wasn't able to run my Linksys WCF11 on Casio E-100. Apparently, there is no easy way to specify IP settings (gateway, WINS, DNS) in Windows CE 2.11 for Linksys (unlike PocketPC OS, where we have network settings in control panel). I tried playing with registry - however, it messes up big time.
