5550 has the newest OS, Pocket PC 2003/Windows Mobile 2003 and have been re-written for better connectivity support. It has included infrared, bluetooth and wireless lan.
5450 has PPC2002 and requires a ROM update/patch to be able to use Wireless LAN properly.
However, if you want to connect to the internet via dialup, you can either use the bluetooth dialup with the bluetooth mobile phone, expensive:-), or use a CF/PCMCIA modem, but require a PCMCIA/CF jacket. Both model use the same one.
