Wireless networking problems with IPAQ 5550

Wireless Problems with IPAQ 5550

I have recently received an IPAQ 5550 and Xircom wireless network access point (both are 802.11b compatible) and although i have been able to create the wireless network at home i have been unable to get my IPAQ to recognise it, i was wondering if anyone has had a similar problem with the IPAQ or knows how i can successfully get the IPAQ to connect to the network?

so far the help pages have been of no use

Do you have the cards drivers installed? When you put it in does it give you a message? Can you open the program that came with the wirless card driver that lets you set up the settings? I have set up a bunch of different cards nn pocket pc's. I have a dell Axim now that I have a wireless cf (SMC) card in it and I love it. I have an old IPaq where I had the PCMCIA slot that I used several different cards with.

as far as i was aware the wireless (and bluetooth) features are all integrated to the IPAQ 5500, therefore no additional hardware is needed.
