Hi

New to forums, so hope someone can help. When I turn on my IPAQ Hx 2490b get a message "unknown card in slot 2" even though no card is installed, then requests driver. When WiFi initiated "icon goes amber" but no networks are found any ideas?
thanks
mick

I got a PM, but I prefer to keep this thread up to date.

A hard reset didn't work - but you haven't told me yet if this is a built-in wi-fi or an external card. If it's built-in Wi-Fi then it's time to send the unit to repairs. If it's an external one, make sure you installed the drivers before inserting the card again.

And you complete a hard reset, not a soft reset as recommended?

A hard reset erases everything on your device, making it look as new - you have to configure everything.

If this was indeed a hard reset and didn't help then I'd say the device needs to be repaired.
