I originally posted this problem in the Wifi forum but got no replies. I hope someone here can help.
I am trying to set up WifI access from my PDA (Compaq 3970) using a Netgear PCMCI card in a compaq sleeve. I have downloaded generic drivers from the Compa (HP) site and the card shows up as "HP wireless Network Driver".
The AP is also netgear and I have disabled WEP and am broadcastin the SSID until I resolve this issue.
The card's green LED comes on and so I seem to be connected and my router is set up to for DHCP. vxIPconfig shows me no data on the opening screen but in the stats screen says my ip is 127.0.0.1 which I beleive means that I havn't been issued an IP address.
vxUtil allows me to ping my home network in the 192.168.x.x range and I have successfully pinged 188.8.131.52 as suggested in one of the posts here.
The problem is that this is all I can do. I can't see my PCs on the LAN, connect to the internet or see the PDA from any PC on the LAN.
I've tried soft resets and reconfigurations including the use of specific DNS addresses.
Can anyone suggest what I should try next?
