How do I set up IPAQ WiFi

  PaulH 20:45 04 Jan 2005

I have wifi between my desktop and laptop which works OK (Belkin AP and card). Having now got an IPAQ 3175 I cannot seem to be able to connect this to the WiFi link. The IPAQ recognises that the WiFi is there but refuses to connect. Any suggestions on settings?

Ipaqs can be a nightmare - if you have a firewall disable it, are you using a wep key (make sure its entered correctly - I use belkin products and it has to be upper case)

Thanks for the advice. I turned off the Norton firewall but this made no difference.

The network is WLAN, All available,
Under Network Key - authentication Open, Data encryption - Disabled.
Under 802.1x - nothing selected.

I've been looking at my ipaqs settings

Click on settings>connections.connections.advanced tab, tap network card in the "my network connects to list" select the internet.

have you entered your user name and password?

I have an Ipaq 2100 with Bluetooth. I can talk to my laptop via a Belkin Bluetooth Dongle. I can sync and exchange files OK. My Laptop has wireless internet access via a router. Should I be able to access the internet on my IPAQ using the laptop internet access, and if so can anyone advise on the setup.

Hope someone can help
