 have set up my ipaq with my wireless home network, it will also turn WiFi on (green) on my ipaq and the tower at the top will signal.  I also have netfront 3.2 loaded. I have indications I have a signal.  When I enter a URL and enter then I get "Browser warning, cannot read page."   I have tried different combinations of settings and still cannot read page message comes up. 
I'm pretty sure that is not a hardware problem,  the pda seems to work ok it connects to the sync cable and updates and loads from the main desktop, other programs and games work ok.  

The following are suggestion in another post by Mauricio Freitas:
 You might want to follow this:

- On your Pocket PC open File Explorer
- Browse to \Windows and tap welcome.exe
- Follow instructions
- Soft reset the Pocket PC

And then try using Pocket Internet Explorer again.
 I did try the welcome screen and still received the message.  You can download VxUtil from here:

Use it to check the connection configuration and see if it's correct (IP address, DNS, gateway, etc). Also, use it to PING some servers and see if your connection is actually working.

I downloaded VxUtil and loaded the tools and I do receive a ping.
 That’s as far as I got. I have attempted to load the site numbers and gateway but still don’t do anything.   Any suggestions?

Welcome to Geekzone... Using VxUtil you are able to ping for example and receive a reply?

Does Pocket Internet Explorer work or is this happening with both Pocket Internet Explorer and Netfront? If only with Netfront then check that the PROXY settings are disabled, for a direct connection.

Yes both the explorer and netfront 3.2 are affected.  The message on internet explorer gives me " the page you are looking for cannot be found."
