Okay guys here's my issue.
My company purchased a few HP2200 IPAQ's (Pocket PC).
The wireless adapter for these units is: Netgear 802.11b flash card MA701.
I have installed "Active Sync" per HP's directions to my local tower pc.
I have attached the HP2200 via USB cable to the tower pc.
They see one another and transfer data.
My main problem is this.
I am unable to communicate with the WAP (that's ten feet away from me) via the HP2200 hand held.
The palm recognizes the NetGear but I am unable to launch the MA701 Configuration Utiltiy from the palm.
The NetGear card shows no activity.
I have used two different Palms and two different Netgears with the exact same results.
The WAP is on line and functioning.
So in short, how come the MA701 configuration utility fails to launch from within the palm and what would prevent the Netgear from reaching the WAP.
I know (and have read) that at a minimum the Netgear LED should either blink or stay steady. If it is in an off state that is supposed to indicate a lack of power to the card.
Both Netgears in either palm show no LED activity.
