Describe the set up of the network a bit. How many PC`s and their operating systems. Which wireless router? (make and model) Who is your ISP and is it cable (NTL / Telewest Blueyonder) or ADSL (BT Line). I know nothing about PDA`s so how does that get onto the internet through the network?

Router is a netgear dg834g 802.11 g & b , 1 pc hard wired 1 pc wireless, 1 pda wireless connection.
ISP setting directly into router, pda access's internet no problems.

The basics of ms file/print sharing are - you need ms file/print sharing services running on both applicable devices. So you need 'MS file/print sharing services' on your PDA Win2003-Mobile.

My PDA is an older one, MS Pocket PC. It has network drivers, but no software for file/print sharing. Microsoft often supply additional downloads for their pda software. Check their download site for file and print sharing on w2003 mobile.

As far as my limited knowledge goes, the only way of me transferring files from my pda is via activesync. - also consider looking for networkable activesync.

Sorry I can't be of more help. Good luck.
