Connecting pocket pc up to internet

  BIG Ben strikes 10 again! 16:52 31 Jan 2005

Hi i have a viewsonic v35 pocket pc

windows mobile 2002,64mb ram,300mhz chip.

I was wondering if there is anyway at all i can connect it up to my broadband connection?

The only way i think are possible is through Ir

but funny that a ethernet pc card dongle (pc card connection to ethernet),fits at the bottom where the sync cradle port goes.can i use this to make the connection or am i out of my mind?

thanks.ben.all suggestions are aprecieted

Thanks SANTOS7

I guess this is the only way?

i was kinda hoping that i could connect to my BB connection.but then i guess im out of the house i can use my Ir phone to call a 0845 internet number and get it for 5p per minute on weekend.thanks.ben

I have iPAQ 2200 running windows 3 and

1. I can connect to the internet using the docking cradle and also via a USB sync lead - not that much use as it's next to my PC but at least proves it can be done.

2. I got a BELKIN broadband wireless router ( eBUYER £45 ) and a wireless card which fits the CF slot ( £27) and now I can surf from my sofa using my PDA also has MSN & Mail. I can also stream MP3's & Video from my PC to my iPAQ.

I have all the prduct details of the bits I brought if you want them ?

Works well and seems a cheap(ish) solution but I have 3 PC's networked at home as well and the wireless PDA was an added bonus !

Well that was my orignal plan,i was going to get a hp ipaq 4150 for christmas (i am 14).

but they bought me a viewsonic v35 instead :-(

Exactly how your setup i wanted.

problem is i don't think it is SDIO enabled?

thanks V much for all comments.

Must be tough being 14 and only having a ViewSonic.

Have you thought about calling the RSPCA?

Joking of course, but it is a bit of a pain. What happened to the cash you were saving too? I went for a Dell Axim x30 in the end, which was just over 200 squids. Very pleased with it thus far.

Hope you get your wants fulfilled

Well,they kinda thought a pocketpc was a pocketpc and none of them are different in anyway.

My uncle who is a lorry driver,got a free V35 and a GPS navigator (which he never used becouse he prefered maps!).I was telling my uncle about the ipaq 4150 and showed him now he also knew i wanted a pocketpc,so my uncle told my mum and dad about it,and my uncle gave it to them to give to me.when i opened the pressie,i put a happy face of course.i then asked them if i could still save a little more and get a 4150,they said 'you already have one',and i left it at that.

A few weeks back i bought myself a nice dell very pleased with it.

But.......i don't like cyclying.guess what i got?

I had a look at the viewsonic and it looks like a good machine

Take a look at these websites - plenty of free software that should run on it ( u have an XSCALE processor ) my son has dowloaded loads of games and utilities for his 2210 and tells me lots of good apps etc
