You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.
"I have no reason left to live. Now where the hell does this 7 go?" (Spank E)
So I've got a Pocket PC (specifically, iPaq 3630) and an 802.11b wireless card (Netgear MA701) running Windows CE 2000. Everything's installed right and there's a connection, but I can't use that connection for, say, Internet Explorer. How can I do this? The card's manual isn't much help.
I've got an Ipaq 5550 and it can be a pain in the butt to get it going at first. Are you connecting to an access point or router that has security enabled? Make sure you have the latest firmware for your card so you can connect with WPA if needed.
It's great once it works. Well, great in that I really don't have practical reasons to use it since I always have a desktop or laptop right in front of me, but it's awesome to take into the restroom so I can surf the net even while downloading some major bytes.
Try pulling the battery out completely and plugging in the cord. It could be a battery issue. It could be a bad cord. Do you have any way of knowing if there is power to the cord? Did you have it on an outlet that is controlled by the light switch?
