Ipaq 2215 using SDIO card attempting to connect to lynksys/wep network. I have a few laptops and 1 desktop connected succesfully. I am getting pretty frustrated. The IPAQ rec. an IP address from DHCP and connection looks good. When I attempt to browse or ping wirelessly I rec the error message "the page you are looking for cannot be found" If I dock the the IPAQ on its craddle connected to one of the laptops the web surfing is successful. Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to Geekzone... First of all I recommend (if you don't have it already) installing VxUtil (free). Use it to check the IP configuration on your iPAQ.

If te information (IP, DNS, Gateway) is not correct then you have to investigate the wireless connection. Check if there is any MAC filtering, WEP key is entered correctly, all patches are applied on your Pocket PC, make sure te Access Point is set to allow 802.11b, no turbo mode is enabled,...

Some users report fixing Pocket Internet Explorer Page not found errors by running the \Windows\welcome.exe file on the PocketPC.
