Hi

My iPAQ hw6965 with WM5 occasionally comes up with the following message:

Pocket PC Networking
Unable to obtain a server assigned IP address.
Try again later or enter an IP address in Network Settings.

Any ideas?

I get that too. my guess is that when removing from the cradle, the ActiveSync probably did not notice the disconnection. Also if you use Direct Push, the network may have dropped your device IP address.

It won't be Direct Push because I don't use that.

Interestingly, or not, this only started after I had to do a hard reset. Prior to that I was using ActiveSync 4.2, and didn't encounter the problem, but so far am only using 4.1.

This happens to me, too. Randomly. I also have no idea why.

Another thing could be that the IP that you were using or was assigned to the device has lease expired?

Regardless, it is harmless, just reestablish an internet connection or soft-reset if you're wondering anything.

I won't lose any sleepless night over this. :-)


Though, what daunt me is the ActiveSync displays "Waiting for network..." when the device is data connected, yet it has not receive any direct push/activesync for quite a while... weird huh?
