WiFi cards connect to a Network through a Wireless Access Point (WAP). The WAP in my house is actually a router. I bought it for about $120, and then bought a Type II PCICMA WiFi card for my laptop. My WAP connects to my cable modem, and I have hard wires from the router going to two computers. My laptop accesses via WAP, and so in good weather, my back yard is my "home office." That WiFi card is a very busy device. It has a radio transmitter/receiver in it, as well as some low-level encription device. I have my WAP set to sync with encryption to any wireless device, and then just for laffs, I have the WAP set to sync only with cards that have particular MAC (i.e, hard-encoded) addresses. Nobody's swiping my connection! When I get my Axim, I'm going to get a WiFi that fits into the CompactFlash slot. I'll have to register it with my WAP, but then I can access the Internet in my back yard with the Axim, too. I'll also have a second configuration stored so that when I visit my favorate coffee shop, I can connect to its WAP, too. This stuff is using the 802.11b standard. If available, I may get a CF 802.11g WiFi. However, the 802.11 "a" and "g" standards have not made much inroads in the commercial and private "hot spot" worlds yet, and a typical card is about $100. I'm likely to get tired of the Axim itself before I'll feel a need to upgrade the card.

Why does Wireless hardware switch not work, light stays orange and will not enable WiFi?

step one (guessing #4 down fails)
  1. are you at home, Starbucks ,air port or at work, (who's wifi)
  2. do other wifi devices work there., PC, TV, cell phones on wifi or ?
  3. if yes,#2, then move the laptop closer t the wifi router.
  4. If no and device manager shows 701 errors "? that means the drivers are wrong even infected not using HP.com drivers for your unstated OS. windows 7?
  5. on my HP laptops, it takes 2 drivers from them to work wifi,
  6. the wifi card driver must match (of up to 3 or more used new)
  7. and must have the control panel BUTTON driver working to control wifi.
  8. did you up grade it W10 and now wifi is dead , ? oops!
dv6-2155dx , seems was window 7 new, and frozen there,.
HP has no support now for this old PC. (besides asking on THEIR FORUM)

HP has short list of wifi cards they used, and only those work
HP blacklists all other non HP cards (unlike wonderful DELL)
so wrong cards are doomed to fail., as is w10
the correct card (1) is here
Intel 5100 512an_hmw Half Mini Pci-e WLAN WiFi Wireless Card 572507-001 for HP Laptop. for windows 7 only.
802.11b/g/n WLAN

see button driver here at HP.com best is only get them from HP

I want to connect to my wireless Internet connection

If everything is working as it should. All you have to do is turn onyour Wi-Fi. You will then see a popup asking you if you would like toconnect.

You may need to add a compact flash wireless card:

Confused about the WiFi on X5

It does NOT have integrated WiFi, you will have to buy a compact-flash card, the Linksys WCF12 works perfectly in mine.

Secure Digital Wireless card?

No. The secure digital on the Axim only supports memory cards. If you want to use anything else it will have to be for the cf in the Axim. Devices for wifi, bluetooth, and modems are more readily available for cf and are lower priced at the moment too.

Pocket PC e400 en Sandisk WiFi

I have bought the Bluetooth Option Part for my e400. It was an "PC Bluetooth SD Card2". In the specs of the Bluetooth Card is an SD/IO enabled SD Slot required for the Card. So I think your Wifi will also work.
