You don't really give enough details. Will your IPAQ connect to a different network? Will it connect to your friend's network? Or can your friend connect to yours? - That will narrow down the problem to your network and not the IPAQ or vice versa.
Can the IPAQ 'see' your network but not connect? In which case in could be an authentication issue. Try turning off your WEP/WPA security briefly to see if it connects then.
If it can't see your network at all, do you have your SSID broadcast disabled - you can check this in your router settings.

Hope these suggestions help a bit = if you have any further details, I'm sure someone here will be able to help.

Sorry for the lack of information. according to the pda it sees my network and it says that it is connected but when ever you try to go to a website it says that the page cannot be found. my friend lives in a different city than me so we cant connect to eachothers networks.

Seems likes it's a bit of a common problem - there's a thread on it click here
that offers a number of solutions, plus a recommendation to get the latest firmware (don't forget to back up!) = hopefully this will help a bit.
