hello there ppl.

ive a hp ipaq h4100 and im having some problems connecting it to the internet using wireless and a linksys router.

other routers i can connect and use the internet.

ive used a simple wireless pcmcia on my laptop and it worked perfectly. so we assume that the router wireless is working ok... when i connect the ppc to the linksys using wireless i have in fact a connection but i cant use any online service, like internet explorer and msn messenger!

my conclusion, the linksys is blocking only ppcs to connect to the internet. i think this because i can connect through the linksys router with my desktop but not with the ppc.


do you ppl know if theres any compatible problem between this 2 products? do you know whats wrong?

Pls. help me :)

thanks

Welcome to Geekzone. I don't think there's such a thing as the router blocking Pocket PCs. There are a few updates for the h4150 on HP's site, including a couple for Wi-Fi. Are you using these?

Also, make sure the wireless router is set to use 802.11b since this is the only one supported by your Pocket PC. And check that there's no MAC address filtering, and that the router can give IP addresses as needed (DHCP).

Make sure you can connect without WEP, and if it works then enable WEP and try again. Be sure to enter the key with the onscreen keyboard, since it's easy to enter the wrong character with the handwriting recognition.

There are lots of things to check...
