Dell AXIM X5 - PPC 2002

Postby downloadgeek » Sun Nov 14, 2004 3:29 pm

Hello,

I am running the older Dell AXIM X5 Pocket PC using Windows Pocket PC Version 2002. I dont have a wifi card but i plan on getting one. I was just wondering with ministumbler, will it automatically detect networks and connect to them? Since i am using PPC 2002 do i have to configure in order to access the network or can i just click somthing and be connected???

Thanks

Are you just trying to figure out how to connect to any available network for a little free internet time or network browsing to see what's there?

what i want to do is to goto starbucks and be able to have access to their wifi. A lot of the restaurants and coffee shops that i goto have wifi access and i want to use it with my pocket pc.

You go into Starbucks (or whatever shop) and ask how to do it. Since the specifics vary from place to place, they will give you the information.

Charbucks' WiFi isn't free.

They've signed with T-Mobile for nationwide WiFi. (The last time I checked, anyway.)

It was about $30.00 per month for a T-Mobile account the last time I was in one and took the time to read the flyer, but that was 3-4 months ago. And then your link isn't secure anyway, unless you use something like that VPN service that was mentioned in one of the other posts I skimmed through earlier...

Legal defamations and obturations apply to the above personal opinon.. :p

They aren't free, nor did I state that they are, nor did he ask about it. I merely said "You go into Starbucks (or whatever shop) and ask how to do it. Since the specifics vary from place to place, they will give you the information."

That still stands. If he wants hotspot service from a particular place he needs to ask the provider for details on connecting.
