Setting up WiFi

I used to have no problems setting up my Ipaq 4150 for WiFi access, but for some reason I can't get this MDA Pro online. It kept trying to dial the 3G connection, so I disabled the radio and kept the WiFi active, and now it won't connect to ANYTHING...

Does anyone have a dummies guide?

I've got it configured (as far as I can tell) exactly as my Ipaq 4150, but it ain't happening...

First things first, I need to get WiFi working. Secondly, I want to get it to connect using WiFi first of all, then to dial 3G if it can't. That's gotta be possible, surely.

What I've got happening at the moment?

It shows the SSID of my network as "Connecting" but never shows connected, yet on my router I can plainly see it has a DHCP assigned IP in the correct range, and shows as a connected wireless client.

I must be overlooking something simple, but I can't see it!

Thanks for the advice. Hitchhiker wouldn't install properly - or rather would freeze the device when I ran it.

I went to work and connected straight away to a T Mobile hotspot, which kinda told me the WiFi itself wasn't broken.

I had a bit of a think, then came home and adjusted my IP range and VOILA it worked.

So here's a word of warning. If you have your router set to 169.241.1.1 giving out IPs via DHCP, there's a very good chance the device won't work properly. I changed (back) to 192.168.1.1 and it worked straight off, no problem.

I have yet to fully clarify this with Toy Mobile, but I think that you have to pay extra for their Hotspots service to be able to use Wi-Fi. However, this seems to be just to let you use their own designated Hotspots (from reading the info on the website), so I don't know what is required to enable it to work with a home or work WLAN for example.

I would suggest contacting T-Mobile to confirm this, and post back here with your findings.

Thanks
