But your connection works fine if you manually enter an IP address? Are there other DHCP clients on the same WiFi router (or Access Point)?

Sorry, I don't think I can be much help then. So you never get an IP address using DHCP, but even when you enter address data manually, you get no LAN access?

MAC address filtering on your router? Or some other security setting? Or maybe the iPaq is trying to use a different network (if there is one) even though it has a valid WiFi connection. I sometimes had to disconnect my data connection (i.e Telecom mobile data network) to use WiFi.

Currently all ROM updates for Windows Mobile devices come from manufacturers. Microsoft is not involved with distribution at all.
