      WIFI iPAQ RX3715 connecting problems

      I dont seem to be able to connect wirelessly to my router. Must be missing something, anyone managed to do this?

      On the iPAQ RX3715 -
      Configure Wireless Networks I can see my wireless network and it is "Available",
      settings are
      General
      Connects to: The Internet

      Network Key (I'm a bit grey in this area, I've tried a mixture currently set to)
      Authentication: WPA (choice of Open, Shared, WPA, WPA-PSK)
      Data Encryption: WEP (choice of WEP or TKIP)
      checked key is provided for me automatically (if I untick and put in my network key and key index of 1 as my Sky network is on channel 1, I get "failed to authenticate error")

      Ultimately I would like to connect to a server on my wireless network (its a media server), so not just to use the internet...

      Any help much appreciated, scratching my head a bit on this one...

      Unless you have changed them the default settings for the Sky router are :-
      Authentication:- WPA-PSK
      Data Encryption:- TKIP
      Network Key:- The 8 letter key on the bottom of your router (I'm not sure if it is case sensitive but use caps to be sure)

      There should be no need to enter the channel number as your iPAQ has already found your router and knows what channel it is on.

      I don't know the iPAQ but those are the setting you asked about.Any others and I will try and help.

      Is the IPAQ 802.11b only? Is the router set to allow both b and g connections?

      I had a similar problem.
      My router is ASUS RT-N16 , flashed with TOMATO firmware.
      My iPAQ rx3715 was unable to wifi with this router.

      After much trial and error i came up with the following solution:

      setup network in the iPAQ as WPA-PSK with TKIP, then

      1) set the router to WPA-Personal (or WPA/WPA2-Personal) - obvious
      2) set the router to TKIP only (no TKIP/AES) - obvious
      3) set the WMM option in the router to Disable (it's set to Auto by default) - not so obvious, but THE MOST IMPORTANT thing. (WMM=="Wireless MultiMedia")

      After that my iPAQ rx3715 was able to wifi with my router
