Linksys tech support have been very good, but still no progress.
When I attempt to connect with WEP 64bit activated the router mis-assigns an invalid IP address, sometimes as a standard IP address ( for example 169.254.101.179 -actual address given, no 192.16.1.? which Linksys router assigns to other laptops and pc's on this home network).
Other times in the "server assigned IP address box a string of number appears which look like a MAC address instead of the traditional IP address ( for example fe80::20e:7fff:fe75)
I have flashed all the latest rom on the ipaq and WLAN updates.
I have VXutil and would be most grateful for any specific suggestions on what to run/check.
yours in anticipation,
