ipaq 6315 wi-fi problems
      #19594 - 03/28/05 09:58 PM

Hi there.

I'm using an ipaq 6315. I was able to connect to free wi-fi hot spots in my area. The signal shows that my ipaq is connected and the signal is strong. However, when I go to internet explorer and try to browse, the ipaq shows me a message saying "the Page you are looking for cannot be found".. what could be the problem?

thanks

Make sure that DHCP is enabled (so the iPAQ can get an IP address and DNS info from the access point). Do you know if those access points use encryption (WEP keys)? If so, you'd need to know and enter the correct WEP key for the access point you wish to connect to.

Thanks Lisa . How do I make sure that the DHCP is enabled? There are many access points here that do not require WEP keys. They provide free access but still, I get the same problem.
