Xircom Wireless Ethernet...help.
Ok, my T|C is off getting a new screen. (Very bottom didn't respond to taps.)
In the mean time, I picked up a Xircom 802.11b springboard to use with my Edge.
I'm attempting to connect to a D-Link Access Point that's connected to my router in my house.
I'm able to establish a connection, and seem to stay connected. However, when I start up Blazer (or EudoraWeb), and try to load a site, nothing will come up. (It eventually times out, and says it can't find the site.)
However, signal strength from the Xircom app show a full strength signal, and I've successfully used this setup with my T|C for a couple months w/o a hiccup.
Only thing I'm seeing is the Yellow light seems to blink like crazy whenever I'm connected. Even though I don't really think it should be....I mean, its not loading anything, as Blazer reports its trying to connect...
I updated the modules firmware, to the latest 1.15 (I think). So I think I'm all set there.
I've also tried to keep it simple, no SSID (yet), no encryption (yet), no password...etc. It should be open to anything that wants to get online.
Re vera, potas bene.
