I've recently bought an IPAQ 2200series pda. I have a spectec wireless card for the pda, but cannot get a connection to my home wireless network :(   I spent 3 days trying EVERYTHING, finally, I somehow was connnected (not sure how) .  All was fine until I had to reset the pda, now I'm back at square 1.

It sees  my home network, and indicates it's connected to it, but i cannot get any dataflow throught the pda unless it's hardwired to my pc.

any help would be GREATLY apperciated.  At this point I'm desperate

thank you

is your home network secured in any way? if its wpa maybe your card doesnt support this, has the ipaq asked for a network key or wep key? is your router firewall set to block external iput/output, or is it set for mac filtering, do you know anyone elese with a wireless network try your on that one and visa versa, good luck
