Hi all

Any tips on speeding up Activesync? I've enabled the extra ports, turned off Advanced Network Functionality, made sure Windows Firewall not blocking it and plugged my USB direct into PC, not via my hub. Its still painfully slow. I switched from Palm thinking this woould be an upgrade. I've run the Activesync troubleshooter and it says unable to connect but no known issues. I'm using 4.5 with an Okta Touch on Windows XP. (and Outlook 2003)

I wonder does Birdie Sync work better? Its pricey but if it works might be a better option.

Any assistance greatly appreciated!

Cheers

Peter

Is it slow or not working? It's not clear on your post - the subject is "slow" in the post you say "unable to connect".

Sometimes it goes and sometimes it fails to connect and launches the troubleshooter. The trouble shooter says unable to detect USB but as soon as I close the window -it connects. Turning off the advanced networking functionality seems to have helped the speed but its still a bit unreliable.

I'm wondering too - is it possible to connect my Okta to the internet using my PC broadband - via USB or Bluetooth? This would solve a lot of my problems as I use Gmail and Google Calendar so could just bypass Outlook and sync online. I know you can use T3g connection but would like to minimise data charges.

Cheers

Peter

This could be something related to USB power - open Device Manager and uncheck the box to power down the device to save energy.

Yes, whenever you connect a Windows Mobile device to a PC it will automatically be connected to the Internte through that PC's conneciton.

Thanks will try that! Regarding internet via PC- do I need to set up a new connection on the mobile to achieve this? When I try to connect will cabled to PC - it just uses the T3G connection.

I can't find that power option- in device manager it comes up with 'Windows CE USB device' but no tab for power management. Is it somewhere else?

Look for that option in ALL your USB Rooth HUB devices.

You don't need to do anytning the passthrough connection is automatic

What often works for me is deleting the partnership and then re-establishing it back.

Im still surprise that Microsoft hasnt come up with an updated version of ActiveSync after its last release.

There's some work going on, I am sure... The whole user experience is broken as it is now.
