A while ago, I asked about a problem I was having with my Dell Axim using MS Pocket PC ver 3.0.11171 and pocket internet explorer.

The wireless link works fine (tested by sending / receiving email), but internet explorer would not access the internet. The problem was isolated to the software by installing a different internet browser (I can’t remember the name) and all worked with the new browser.
Someone said that the browser might be corrupt and because it comes with the entire windows program on the firmware, I would need to get another Axim.

I did a complete backup of my PPC to my desktop, and installed it back on my new Axim. The problem still exists. I think one of the posts I received said that the problem might get copied back on to my new Axim, and as it turns out, I think this is exactly what happened.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I might repair the browser? I could load the browser I tried before, but its been some time ago and don’t remember the name. My first choice would be to just correct the problem. I’ve been all over Microsoft’s knowledge base website, but so far have come up empty handed.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

What kind of connection are you using? GPRS or LAN?

If using GPRS, are you using an APN that allow HTTP?

Also, you might want to try running a program called welcome.exe on \Windows in your Pocket PC. Then try using Internet Explorer again.
