iPaq 4155 ActiveSync gives up
I guess it's too much to ask for it to stay connected!

My iPaq drops the connection to my PC periodically. It then syncs every 5 minutes (like it's configured) via wireless. What is going on? I take the PDA out of it's cradle and once returned, it connects just fine for another undetermined amount of time.

Any help would be nice. Thanks!

if you take it out of the craddle and put it back in, does it connect?

sure does. Sometimes it goes for days at a time connecting just fine whenever I want... then sometimes it just lets go! WEIRD!

Greetings, all!

I, too am the brand new owner of the iPAQ 4155 and have had wireless disconnects for no apparent reason. after I get disconnected, I go to the iPAQ Wireless screen and find that both the Bluetooth and wireless circles are green.

I noticed a microscopic bluetooth icon at the bottom right hand corner of the screen that I have caught myself accidentally coming in contact with either by bumping it with the stylus or hitting with my finger.

that MAY be the problem. hope it is cuz, otherwise I am clueless!

Cheers,
Kathy

I've got a 4150, which i guess is just the same minus the keyboard....just check your power settings.
from the start menu, go to settings, then hit the system tab and select power. Select the control tab and make sure the box "on external power" - "turn off device is not used for" is NOT ticked. Theres also some WLAN settings you can change which might help!

Mattok and pixelkat-

Thanks for the tips... the problem isn't the wireless though. The wireless is what always works.

Sometimes in the middle of the work day, the PDA will just disconnect from the computer. I don't touch it... it just sits in the cradle until it's time to go somewhere. It just decides it doesn't want to talk to the computer on a wire anymore... but does an auto sync over the air still.
