iPaq 5550 WLAN failure

Last Modified: 2008-02-01
I've recently had to hard reset my iPaq 5550 and since then I don't think the WLAN is functioning.  In the Wireless Control program I hit the WLAN icon and get the usual jingle but the yellow light doesn't flash as it did.  I've only been using the feature to check for WiFi sites in shopping malls etc, using the program PocketWiNc.  If I open up this program I get the message "Unable to locate adapter.  This application will be closed."  It used to work fine.

If I run a SelfTest in the Settings menu the WLAN yellow light does flash briefly, as does the Bluetooth light (which still works).

Can anyone suggest how I might get the WLAN to run?
