I probably see more postings on Web forums and netnews about problems with getting wireless ActiveSyncing working than any other Pocket PC wireless problem. So, I thought I would take the time to show just how easy it is to do. Right now, I use wireless ActiveSyncing with two different computers: my home Compaq desktop PC accessed through a wireless router, and my work HP laptop accessed through an Ad-Hoc connection to its WiFi PC Card. Step 1
First establish an ActiveSync partnership between your Pocket PC and your PC by using a USB, Serial, or Infra Red link. Wireless ActiveSyncing is not possible without performing this step first. Step 2
You must enable network connections in ActiveSync on your PC. In the "File" menu of ActiveSync select "Connection Settings...". Then click on the check box next to "Allow network [Ethernet] and Remote Access Service [RAS] server connection with this desktop computer." Finally, click "OK".
Next you'll need to enable network ActiveSyncing on your Pocket PC. Start up the ActiveSync application on it. In the "Tools" menu, select "Options...". Then click on the check box next to "Include PC when synchronizing remotely and connect to:". Finally, enter the name of the PC you'll be syncing with in the text box below this line.
The last step involves making use of the Pocket Hosts program to enable your Pocket PC to find your PC over the Internet. Start up this program and add the name of the PC you'll be syncing with in the "Host Name:" text box, and its IP address in the "IP Address:" text box. Click on the "Add" button and quit the program.
You should then be all set for wireless ActiveSyncing now. In order to start the ActiveSync, you'll need to initiate it from your Pocket PC's ActiveSync application by clicking on the "Sync" button. Clicking the "Stop" button terminates the ActiveSync.
