m500 wifi

Hello

Am a newbie with wifi - just got an SPV m500 and bought a Sitecom Wifi Card. Can't work out how to use it! Seems to have installed OK, but when I choose a connection to use and click on IE, it keeps starting up GPRS. Is this to do with my basic settings? Do I need to reconfigure somehow?

Some basic help would be much appreciated.

I'm no expert on this but I encountered a similar problem getting the Activesync Passthrough connection to work.

I'd assume you'd have to change the connection settings:

Start Menu > Settings > Connections > Connections > Advanced > Select Networks

There should now be two pulldown menus:

"Programs that automatically connect to the Internet should connect using"

and

"Programs that automatically connect to a Private network should connect using"

I would assume that these are currently both set to "Orange World". Try looking at the options and see if there is one there for your Wifi card. If so, select this and it may or may not work!! Give it a try and see how it goes. Just one thing to remember, when you do want to use GPRS, you'd have to set these back to Orange World. As I said, I'm no expert on this as I've never tried a Wifi card on my M500 but it seems a logical thing to try. Good luck! ;)

Sounds sensible, but no luck I'm afraid.

The pull down options were

my isp name

my isp

my work network

orange mms

orange world

no wi fi card option sadly.

Thanks for trying - much appreciated.

PS Tim Cahill mean anything to you?

Of course - the second best midfielder in the Premiership! Right behind Mikel Arteta! ;)/

Is your Wifi card listed under "Network Cards"? If so, you might have to create a new connection using the wifi card. Beyond that I really couldn't suggest anything else beyond doing a search on the Pocket PC forum.

I'll have a look - many thanks for coming back to me.

It was my team who made Cahill what he is today. Shame he had to knock us out of the cup this year.
