Questions for my first Pocket PC
      #14357 - 08/12/04 08:17 PM

Hi!

I will buy Dells Axim X30, but have some questions, that I couldn't understand by reading the inromation on theire site, or on reviews.

1- the cardle that you get with X30, can I connect with it directly to my PC? In pictures it seams I need to buy a USB cable, but on the dell site, it says USB-cardle, I am connfused!!!

2- I have 3 compeuters at home connected though a D-link Router, and I want to have a wireless connection with the X30 to my broadband connection, can I just buy an Wifi-access and connect it directly to my router or to one of my PCs, or it won't work?

Any help I would be greatfull to

THNX ALL

1) The Dell cradle, like all current PDA cradles, has a USB cable and connector attached to the cradle and that's what you plug into the PC to sync data.

2) You can get a WiFi 802.11b access point for around $60 and connect it to your home router. This will serve an wireless Internet connection to the Dell and any other WiFi capable computers/PDAs you have.

They're all pretty much equally easy to set up. The D-Link should work, and I use the Linksys WAP11 which has played nicely with all the PDAs reviewed on this site in the past year.
