I am able to connect to WAPs with my PDA to surf the internet just fine. You need to set your router so you can get to it using a WEP key. Then from your PDA, select the network, and enter the key. Be sure your PDA knows that it is connecting to the internet through the WLAN and not the "work" network. That usually causes some confusion for mine. Also, be sure your SSID is on, so you know you are connecting to your wireless router.
Mardi_Gras, that is very interesting I had never heard of it. Could you elaborate on exactly like...WHY windows doesn't do it out of the box if your hardware is capable of it? It seems ridiculous (i'm upset know because I just purchased a router on Amazon the other day)
Also, the software you recommended doesn't seem to be widely for sale. Do you know of any other good soft access point stuff?
