Hi I have a viewsonic v37  pocket pc  with a SDIO 802.11b wireless card.  I was wondering if it would be possible to set up a wireless router that only connects to the pocket pc without a regular pc invovled in any way.  I guess the additional question is, do I need a regular pc to set up the router to connect to my pocket pc?
Thanks

Phil

Hi phil-cameron,

You should be able to set up the wireless router to only listen to the MAC address of your wireless card without a problem but you will need a computer to initially set up the connection (ie. set up the router configuration).  If you are using a linksys router, you just type 192.168.1.1 into the address bar and it will bring up a pop up box.  Leave the username empty and the password should be 'admin', 'linksys' or blank ... check your manual.  But after that is set up, you should have no problem connecting to your ppc using only a router without the computer.


Cheers!
