Question about HP iPAQ HX4700 Pocket PC
Just got the above item 1. To gain access to Email/Internet do I have to buy a modem? 2. What does Wi-Fi do? 3. I have two Pcs connected by wireless through Virgin Broadband in the house already. What else do I need to do to connect to the Internet and collect Email on the Ipaq? As you can probably tell I am a complete novice - I need information which is clear and to the point about what I need. I may have to go back to Currys? Please Help!

If your PCs connect wireleslly, then I assume you have set up a home network with a router/modem. Sometimes the modem comes combined with a router. If this is the case, then the 4700 has all you need to connect it to this network and access your emails and internet. This is an example of my setup with my 4700... Go to Start > Settings > Connections > Connections > click on Advanced tab at the bottom click on "Select Networks" button Both entries on this page should be set to "My Work Network". Click "OK" > "OK" back to Settings screen. Go back to Today Screen. Now click on the iPaq Wireless icon at bottom right of this screen. If the WiFi button has an 'x' on it then click it to turn it on. A blue light should now come on at the top of your ipaq to indicate that wifi is on. Click on the 'Settings' button You should be able to see your network on this screen - "Configure Wireless Networks" Networks to access should be set to "All Available" Check the box to 'Automatically connect to non-preferred networks' If the Network is available but not connected, then click on it's name. On this next screen you should select next to 'Connects to' - "The Internet" Then click OK If the Network shows 'Available' and not 'Connected' then click and hold on the name of the network and then you can choose 'Connect' Then under 'Network Adapters', on that screen it should say ... My Network card connects to 'Work"
