1. I'm a bit stupid with this and still learning, but yeah bare with me. Can I connect my apache to my wireless home network and be able to access it from my laptop and also access my laptop from it without the use of active sync or bluetooth?

2. I can't get it to sync with my laptop but it does sync with my my desktop at home and at work. Don't seem to be any problems with the USB ports as I've tried all 3 and have other devices running fine from them. All that happens the little green thingy carries on going round and says connecting but never actually connects. Have uninstalled the software, restarted the pc and re-installed. When the phone is plugged in it get detected as a network device but the sync part does'nt happen. Any ideas?

Welcome to Geekzone...

Answer for 1 is no. The Windows Mobile OS does not provide any service. You can however access your other PC's shared drives, through File Explorer on your Pocket PC.

For 2, please check this article.

1. Ah got the activesync going, bloody pc-cillin antivirus causing it not to connect.
2. I'll check tonight for the network connectivity, did have a quick look last night but not enough time. It gave me an option to type in a path where you want to connect to, not to sure but would this be \\machine-name\shareddrive of the pc I want to connect to?
