Are you looking under the Network Adapters tab of the Config Wireless Networks app? There shold be 2 tabs, Wireless & Network Adapters. The Internet/Work drop-down is on the Network Adapters tab.

Do you have that tab? What is displayed on that tab?

 

Floating 6315 Rom Upgrade

A word of warning. A circulating a ROM upgrade for the HP iPaq h6315 TMobile sku has been going around. This ROM has not been released by HP and will not be supported by HP’s service centers should issues arise. I am warning you now that you will do damage to your iPAQ if you install this ROM.

Note the disclaimer this person put up on his site

Any suppliers of this unofficial ROM update including myself will and shall not be held responsible for any action that may arise. In addition when and or if TMobile or HP gets their act together and do release a patch; it will most likely not work unless the TMobile or HP official patch is also modified for it to flash over to the HP modified patched unit. Doing any of the modifying, patching etc.. will void your warranty!

DO NOT USE THIS ROM!

Sucessfully control pc desktop with PPC

Hi every. I may not be the first to discover this. but i assume many of you are unaware that you can control your pc desktop with pocket pc remotely. I have tried my ipaq h6365. SOUNDS COOL no hastle as there is no software required to install. All you need is a desktop with windows XP connected and wireless network. Mine is a Linksys Broadband Router. The idea is your desktop is a server and your pocket pc will be the client. Firstly, you need to get your desktop ip adress (right click wireless network icon on your desktop and click details you should see your ip something like this 192.168.1.100. I am connected to a local network which means that i can only get access to my desktop around the house. Next your desktop must have an account with a user name and it must have a password (you can still use the current user but make sure it has a password else create a password). Make sure to enable all remote users to connect to your desktop (Start > Control Panel > System > Remote). Lastly Log off your desktop. Ok now get your pocket pc and run Terminal Services Client and make sure to enable your wifi. Enter server with the ip address of your desktop that you have obtained previously. click connect! You ll be prompt to windows log in , simp!y enter your desktop user name and password. youre done, and surprised your desktop is on your pocket pc. here are something that you could do; run applications on your desktop, editing documents or even print them, view webcam and many more. you can even turn off your pc desktop. here is what you cant do, play musics!

try it your self and discover the best of your ipaq cabalities.

If you want to take this one step further an be able to access your computer from anywhere using Remote Desktop in your Port Forwarding area of your router just type in the computer’s IP address (make computer’s IP static before doing this) and for the port to forward would be 3389. Now you can connect to your GPRS data service or any hotspot and type in your “public” ip address to connect via Terminal Services.

You might wanna consider something like DynDns.com which will keep track of your IP for you so all you need to do is remember a name. Additionally, the port number can be changed in the Registry. Do a search on how to change terminal services port or hot to change remote desktop connection port number in google or support.microsoft.com and you’ll see many articles.

Any idea how to troubleshoot this if you cannot get connected. I use a netgear DG834G router and have the desktop set up correctly and have the correct ip address. When I use the ipq 4700 to connect I get a server time out error.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

1. chk firewall settings on your xp machine to see if it’ll allow port 3389 communication 2. chk to make sure you’ve allowed users to connect remotley. (r.c. my computer—properties—-remote)

r.c. = right click

No luck with this. I opened the port on the router and I can active sync via wireless etc so the connection seems okay. I can ping the IP address from the ipaq so the connection seems fine. I have enabled the remote access connection on the laptop using (xp home) but I still get a timeout connection when I use the termianl service on the ipaq.

I get a server time out error.

I think I will just give it a miss, I have tried everything that I know but still no luck. Might be something simple that I am not picking up on. Thanks for your help.

in which case the remote desktop client is not setup properly on your computer. head over to support.microsoft.com and run a search for “setup remote desktop connection” and you’ll see a step by step guide.

H6315 Answers to ROM Release

I still have no formal information about TMobile pulling the h6315 as of today but will make sure I inform you the minute I have the information. But I do have an update on the official US ROM release for the h6315. HP is working on the ROM with enhancements in the following areas..

o Updated WLAN Driver o New GSM/GPRS Firmware o New Bluetooth Stack o Other various feature enhancements

HP has already released a Worldwide English Software Maintenance ROM version for h6340 (SoftPaq SP29511; English) and h6365 (SoftPaq SP29760; English) models which are sold in the Europe and Asia Pacific. This maintenance release was made available February 14, 2005 at HP. Other localized languages are planned for these specific models, including Spanish, French, Italian, German, and Traditional Chinese, and will be released by mid-to late May ’05.

HP is also in the process of developing a Software Maintenance ROM release for the h6315 model sold in the United States under its partnership with T-Mobile. HP says the anticipated release date for this maintenance release is April/May 2005, and will be available from HP at www.hp.com/support FOR FREE!

Hopefully that gives some more direction for our community. As always I will communicate more information as I receive it.

I haven’t seen an app that would do that, but I’d imagine it could be written. If the camera didn’t support streaming, it might be able to constantly take still pictures and send them via FTP to a site. Would be real-time video, but ongoing images.

Uninstall Nevo Media

Please can anyone tell me how to uninstall Nevo Media from my desktop PC. I don’t use it and it slows up the PC, especially on boot up (because it’s a really old PC!). I have searched for Nevo Media in Start -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs, but it’s not there. So can anyone please advise what I need to do to uninstall Nevo Media from my desktop?

Thank you.

I managed to uninstall it from my work notebook by going into the control panel -> add remove programs as you did. However you should find it under “Mobile Media for PC”, not under Nevo Media.

iTECH Bluetooth Virtual Keyboard — A Real Taste of Virtual Reality!!

One very “COOL” device that promises to be the
“Accessory of the Year”!

Some months back, we heard about a Virtual Keyboard that was about to marketed to the “Tech” Community. Of course there was a lot of hype…a lot of discussion…and many who felt it was just not real!

Well folks, it is real, it is terrific, it is accurate, and it is Bluetooth!!

A new era of wireless mobile communications is about to begin with the introduction of the world’s first wireless Virtual Keyboard by iTECH. The Bluetooth VKB is an enhanced version of their Virtual Keyboard (VKB), which is a tiny device slightly larger than a pack of gum that projects a full-size keyboard on any flat surface through a unique system using infrared technology. Truly, we are about to enter into an era of unprecedented convenience!

Dave’s iPAQ was fortunate and extremely pleased to be asked to review the iTECH Bluetooth Virtual Keyboard. Of course, I was honored to be among the first to actually test a device that was “virtual”. I must admit that prior to actually seeing and working with it, I was a bit skeptical as to its real abilities but after spending some serious time with it on several of my iPAQs, I can tell you that this is one very “cool” device that promises to be the “Accessory of the Year”!

Several weeks went by from the first conversation I had with the folks at Power Positioning (2P) Ltd. They are a worldwide company specializing in online marketing, Search Engines Optimization and worldwide distribution and promotion of technology products. During that time, I had several conversations about this product, its anticipated announcement, and when the Bluetooth Virtual Keyboard would actually be released to the public. Most importantly, I was able to learn a little about the folks I was dealing with. They were a group of kind, caring, dedicated professionals that were absolute believers in the quality and the function of their product. It was because of these conversations that my excitement over the BTVKB (Bluetooth Virtual Keyboard) began to grow.

I received a call last week saying that my BTVKB would be shipped on Monday and that I would get it two days later. I just couldn’t wait for the time to pass—I wanted to see and use this keyboard. Finally FedEx delivered it within 10 minutes of the expected delivery time (I love the ability to track a shipment on the web). I wanted to “tear” open the box to look inside but NO—I need to take a picture first!

As I have said several times before in past reviews, presentation means a lot to me. The keyboard just wasn’t encased in some plastic covering, it was placed in a well designed box meant to give you a feeling that you were about to open something special — and you were!

Inside, neatly placed in a form fit container, I found the keyboard, a very nice leather case that had a soft protective interior, a charger, a mini CD with the drivers and software, and a Quick Start Guide. Each item was packaged in plastic to protect it. I tore open the plastic on each item to look at each piece. I actually tore the quick start guide as I hurriedly tried to get the CD out of its package.
