vdub, have you contacted AOL to see if you need to do anything special to get an IP address? It may be different from your PCs which are using AOL software to connect.

That really depends on how much you use it. I try to avoid letting the charge go below 20% for battery health, but beyond that, it's up to how you use it. Generally, you should charge a Pocket PC at least once every 5 days, just in case the battery gets very low.

When you set up the access point in your home or office, you assign it an SSID (name). With some access points, you can leave it at the default SSID name. The ISP generally has nothing to do with this.

Generally, with PDAs, you can let the PDA auto-discover SDSIDs (access points) in range and that will work (for some Palm PDAs, you enter the name "any" to have it look for any access point in range).

If one is security minded, one can set the access point to not broadcast its SSID (so no one can happen upon it and try to hack their way in). In this case, you have to manually enter the SSID name into the settings on the iPAQ. I doubt that VDUB has set up his access point in this fashion though- it's pretty advanced.

yeah, i doubt it too, i dont even know what it means,ssdi. when i set up the linksys, i just stuck the disc into the cpu and followeed the directions. One thing i may mention tho, is when i first set up the liinksys, it was ona different cpu that the one we have now. we bought a new one and i never reinserted teh disc into it, just plugged in the cat5 wire, and everything has been going fine, per the laptops using the wireless. its jut the pda that has the issues,

No, they all have regulatory circuits that prevent over-charging.

By the way, how is your system connected to your Broadband provider?
IS this AOL the broadband provider? YES
Is your modem separated from your router/wifi transmitter? YEP
One normally can set the router and modem from the PC...can you do it? YEP
What setting did you put under WLAN? LEMME CHECK, ITS SAYS, UNDER WLAN ADAPTER - THAT I AM CONNECTED WHEN I PUT THE WIRELESS ON. LIKE I ALWAYS SAYD.
What or HOW did you set the SSID section in your router (not your iPAQ)? NOT SURE HOW TO CHECK THIS, ??

I HAVENT HAD A CHANCE TO GO OUT TO A MALL OR SHOP TO GET SOME SIGNAL. I THINK IT IS THE WHOLE AOL THING, BUT I CANT FIND ON THIER SITE, HOW I CCAN BY PASS THAT. SOMEONE OUT THERE MUST HAVE AOL BRAODBAND AND MUST KNW???

WHATS UP WITH THE YELLOW TINT AT ANGLES ON THIS THING

Hi Vdub and all....happy new year

New discovery for wifi...

Just a week ago, my 4150 was detecting various wifi signals while I was travelling.
When I returned home....I had TROUBLE logging on my own WIFI at home.


I do not really know what happened..
The network detected my WIFI but when I tried the internet, I got exactly what you have "page not available...".

I did a number of desperate moves for almost 1 hour and I am still not sure if this is it..when.....finally..I went into 'SELECT NETWORKS' and I chose My ISP for both boxes (there are 2). ...and then it just worked.

However, I am almost sure it is the cache in the Operating system. Somehow...being too smart...it remembers too well...Maybe Microsoft should look into this problem.
It appears not a problem, if we stick to a few regular WIFI providers.

regards

vdub, you would most likely need a WEP key (functions as a password) to join someone else's network.

Yep Vdub

If you are trying to "hitch" on others line...
you need their permission or in this case WEP key.
It is just a alpha-numeric number.

If it is meant to be subsribed, then you can register and they give you the WEP key and you can then hitch on their line.

There's the Jeode runtime for $50. It's here: http://www.handango.com/PlatformProductDetail.jsp?productType=2&optionId=1_2_2&jid=BEXB34AF7AA57DE97527XCF97BD2286A&platformId=2&siteId=1&productId=59096&sectionId=0&catalog=30&txtSearch=jeode

It lists only PPC 2002 on this page, so I'd contact them to ask if it runs on PPC 2003.
