Hey all,

I am using an Acer n50 Premium handheld, which has integrated WLAN IEEE 802.11b.

Here at my house, my laptop recognizes three wireless networks in the area, which I can't view on my PDA.
Suppose I'm at an airport or at a station where free wireless hotspots are available.
How can I browse them with my PDA to connect to them?

Could someone please help me out. This is one of the nicest features of my PDA, and it's horrible not to know how to take advantage of it and use it.

Thanks to all!

is there a switch on your PDA to turn wifi on?

Perhaps the networks you are viewing are 802.11g only?
