Just got my Avaya WorldCard Silver 802.11b card to work with a Jornada 680 but can't get it to do a sync with my PC over the network.
I'd established a partnership with the PC via serial and both "Network Connection" and the PC computername come up in the ActiveSync options on the Jornada. But when I attempt a Connect, the "Connecting to Desktop" window comes up with "PC contacted. Locating connection agent. Please wait...", then shortly disappears without making a connection and no activity on the PC. I've tried this with both ActiveSync and Outlook open on the PC with no effect.
I know the Jornada and PC are talking OK over the network because I can ping the Jornada from the PC, and can browse shared directories on the PC from the Jornada using Pocket IE.
Only other relevant thing I can think of with regards to the PC is that it's running XP & ActiveSync 3.6.

Sounds like a loose connector inside, I had a similar problem after I took my 680 apart to replace a cracked screen. It took a few more dismantlings and re-assemblings until it settled down. You should also check the state of the button cell battery.
Can you try inserting the card and resetting the unit with the reset button. When the unit is back up got to start>programs>communications>remote networking then make a new connection. Choose dial up connection and select your card.
This may be a simple case of removing all the entire active sync directory.
If you used to connect via serial+com it wont be detected on usb.
Remove active sync from your pc via the add remove program feture, then reboot and re install.
Then run the make a connection again from active sync.
Hope this helps
