Need Help with Wireless Network Setup

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by BERNARD PATERNOSTER, Jan 23, 2006.

  1. I recently installed a Netgear Wireless network card in my PC. I have an
    iPAQ 2415 and connot seem to get it to link up properly. I would like to
    use my computer as an access hub for the internet and be able to use my PDA
    as a terminal. That way, for instance, I could look up information ie.
    Recipes, while in the kitchen on my PDA instead of printing them out in one
    room and going back to the kitchen or, being in the living room and wanting
    to look up something on the net while watching TV.
    I am a novice when it comes to wireless networking. I have used my PDA a
    couple of times in areas that had free net access and it worked fine. I can
    get my PDA and computer to acknowledge each other but that is as far as it
    goes.
    I am using an iPAQ 2415, upgraded to WM5 instead of WM2003SE. Can anyone
    give me some insight or direct me toward a website that could help me?

    Thanks ahead,

    JTMcD.
