I configured WiFi to connect to my work network that additionally use Odissey. The problem is that when I enabled Wireless, I wasn't able to Power On or Power Off my iPaq. It stays Powered On and when the display shut down, there is no way to recover it, I have to hard reset it to have the screen back again. I tried to disable wireless, but it wasn't possible through the application. I'll appreciate if somebody had seen that and help me

Re: iPAQ 4150 & WiFi
i've never known them not come back on after going off, but have noticed they do switch back on, on their own when the wifi is enabled. when i want mine to stay off i tap the arrows at the top of the screen and select "turn on flight mode" this will then stop the device searching for a network and will shut down. when you want wifi again turn the flight mode of in the same way.

check if the led is turned on,if the lead is turned on make sure that the network card is not disabled . check it under network connections and see if it is disabled, enable it.
what does it say when you are trying to scan for the wirless netwroks..
it should either say A) No wireless were detected in the range ... if you get this message it means that you wifi is working fine on the laptop .. check if you can see the wifi turned on the router .
Windows is not configured for this device( or something like that ) .. if you get such kind of message it means you have not enabled WZC(wirelesss zero configuratioin).. for that click on start -- Right Click on MyComputer -- Manage -- Services -- Find wireless zero configuration -- enable.. (After this go to network connstion -- Rightclick -- Propterties--Wireless networks -- Check the box that say use Windows to configure the device.
Your obviously having a network configuration issue. Go into Network icon, set up a network connection, make sure you have Wi-Fi and that your laptop is picking up the signal then manually set up or scan for the wifi access point, your laptop should pick up the access point and a name should appear for that wifi spot. Once that is done then you can rename your access point with your name or HOME whatever you like, its hard to explain through here.
I guess your modem router was already configured well since it worked already previously. It seems that your motorola router is set to broadcast dynamic IPs (DHCP enabled) and your last connected Pc and laptop were configured with static IP. Please check your "network connection" setting and make sure it is set to "Obtain IP automatically"
Secured Wireless is better than a unsecured one. Configuring a secured wireless network easy. ·First Check it the Wireless is turned on in the modem. You must see the wireless light glow on. Wireless LAN (WLAN) should be Enabled before configuring the wireless network ·To make sure, if the WLAN is enabled you can check the WLAN light glow. ·If it is off, then you can be sure that WLAN is disabled.
Click Start, then select Control Panel. Click Network and Internet Connections. The Network and Internet Connections window opens. Click Network Connections. The Network Connections window opens. Right-click Wireless Network Connection. Select Enable to turn on wireless Ethernet or Disable to turn off wireless Ethernet.
always start with the simplest answer first so make sure you have WiFi turned on.
Think back, have you changed the wireless security on your router? If so you may need to re-enter the network details or add your iPAQ's MAC address to the access control list on the router.
In the bottom right-hand corner of the home screen you should have a small HP Wireless symbol, if you tap it you should get your HP Wireless control panel on screen and can 1: turn WiFi on and off, 2: manually enter the WiFi network details and 3: search for WiFi networks in range.
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"
