You have to configure an ad-hoc connection between ipaq and pc if no router. otherwise, simply connect to the router and run activesynch

I have just purchased an eMachine e350, I am having trouble connecting to wifi through the home router(it is on)...I am putting in the security key code but it is saying it is a fathers...

I understood your problem...first check your laptop WIFI is on/off....after switching it on it automatically search for WIFI connectivity arround you...

If your father's laptop find/access that WIFI device then you have problem in code solution is that you should remove authentication check....before connecting ..

Second thing is that such a problem cause due to improper installation of of wirless broadcom drivers for your eMachine ultimately you should re-install wifi drivers from provided CD/DVD...

Restart your device it automatically detect hardware and functions properly...

Thank you for giving me opportunity to solve your problem.

please give me your Ratings!!

IPAQ dosen't connect to Wi-Fi

how far away are you ? from the router? (11b hates noise)
IPAQ are obsolete
why not ask at HP, since its there old device.

ask here.

i cant see your router
its name, or its model number nor the wifi pages inside.

obviously wpa is not working in the IPAQ or is not compatible.
there are sub modes of WPA, and many old devices like this IPAQ do not support, back long ago that was COMMON.
here is its complance spec.

Compliant to 802.1b (EAP-TLS, PEAP)
one poster said
HP-IPAQ-rx3115 is only 802.11b 11mbit (ONLY) so does the book
that means do NOT TURN OFF 11b in the router !

hp seems to have deleted all support, only asking in there forum works now, zero files books.
13 years old this, is.
i had to google for you, for the book. why not yOU?

so your router has broadcast SSID name.
like ROVER
and a password,?
then set to WPA, (try all submodes in the router)???????

page 8-4 covers manual settings if wifi.
my router a top brand, DIR655
has , mixed mode set, then
WPA and WAP2 both on....
then wpa-personal mode
then TKIP and AES both (my guess is you have this wrong)
see how that allows older hardware work on a modern router?
make sure AUTO channels is on, for up to 14 possible.

i read your manual and it clearly fails to mention sub modes
that tells me 2 thing,s its an old relic, and 2, has no submode choices only fixed mode and NOT STATED what it is,
bad that.

most old laptops do this same bad act, most.
seen many, do that, infact some only do WPA and only 1 submode
or only old insecure WEP. only
lived that era, dont miss it at all. why use this old thing at all>?
as street value of what $5 pack of cigs , as we used to say?

11b is 1999 spec (OLD) 18 years old now.
run 1 band, e same 2.4GHz band

802.11b devices suffer interference from other products operating in the 2.4 GHz band. Devices operating in the 2.4 GHz range include: microwave ovens, Bluetooth devices, baby monitors and cordless telephones. Interference issues and user density problems within the 2.4 GHz band have become a major concern and frustration for users.

Problems with HP iPAQ rx1950 Pocket PC not connecting to wifi

make sure your wifi is on for both devices, laptop and device. try to temporarily disable windows firewall to see if that is whyat causing the problem.

Since other devices are connecting then it is most likely the PDA that has the problem.
Is your devices set to use 802.11g technology, what possible WI-FI settings do you have in your device.

Wireless connections

Is your router setup for security? For example on your laptop, did you have to enter a SSID & WEP key in order to get connected to your wifi router. Also, see if your router is setup for MAC filtering, may be possible that its blocking your handheld device from connecting. If thats the case, then you would have to do the same steps on your handheld device has you would on a laptop.

HP iPaq Rx3115 ...Please Help..

It depends what quality you need. If you need top quality you will have to go for something else like a dell axim x50v. This PDA should be ok for watching a movie as long as it is encoded properly, at a low resolution that is.
