Hi all,

Here is my tale of woe. I bought a Toshiba e740 Pocket PC with built in wireless. I have a wireless network at home.

Initially, I could only connect to the internet using the PPC when it was cradled. Each attempt to connect would bring up a dread "unable to connect with current settings" window, with the option to click a settings button that let me adjust precious few settings.

I struggled with this for about four hours. Then, on a whim, I unchecked the power saver checkbox in the connection settings, and lo... it worked. I was now free to surf the web in bed, in the bathroom, etc, etc, etc.

So, it was fine for a few days. Then, I made what seems to be a mistake... I looked at a web page on the internet while the PPC was cradled. Since then, whenever I try to go to a web page when it's not cradled, I get, once again, the "unable to connect with current settings" dialog, and the chance to adjust-- again-- precious few settings.

Can anyone help? I haven't changed *any* settings on the PPC. I simply went to a url while it was cradled, and then it ceased to find the internet when uncradled, permanently.

Thanks in advance!

You should check your settings in the Connections Menu. And make sure that the settings are correct. Most likely they should all be set to Internet Settings.
