Just re read my earlier post and maybe I wasn't very clear on my problem, I have a wireless network and my pda connects to it, its using windows mobil 2003 , I can access the internet over the network fine no probs but can't figure out how to acces files and printers over the network from my pda , is a something special to do ?
On real pc's ie win 2000 and the majority of other operating systems its just a case of searching the network folder or mapping the network drive but can't seem to find the right buttons, can anyone help ?

In file explorer you will see three icons at the foot of the screen. Select the rightmost icon. This will bring up a dialogue box into which you type the name of the pc. e.g. if the pc is called MyPC, type \\MyPC

This should take you to the shared folders on the pc. I am working from memory so please accept that the instructions might not be exactly accurate!
