I have an iPaq 4700 and have just set up a router with a wireless network. When I first set up the network, my iPaq connected to the network when security was not enabled on the router flawlessly. However, when I enabled a 128 bit WEP key, the iPaq would not connect. I tried using a 64 bit key but to no avail. The hex key on the iPaq was the same as on the router under index 1. I have researched a lot of forums and have tried everything, even a hard reset, but nothing works. After the hard reset, my bluetooth won't detect or be detected! I updatd the ROM from HP months ago so I don't think it's that. Any feedback much appreciated.

Welcome to Geekzone.

First easy test: turn off security on this router and try connecting. Does it work?

Make sure the wi-fi router is no configured to filter MAC addresses, and that it is working in both 802.11b and 802.11g configurations. Also turn off any "Turbo" mode. Perhaps change channel?

Thank you for replying. Can you explain how I would turn the MAC filtering off? The Ipaq does work without security.

Well, the turn access control box is unticked and I have tried other channels. Should I try them all? I must admit i didn't think it would make much difference. Can you direct me to the turbo mode?

I ended up using a MAC filter on the router as I just could not get the PDA to connect using the correct WEP key.
