Palm on a LAN

Palm on a LAN

Palm on a LAN

What I'm basically looking for is a wireless TCP/IP connection for a Palm device (or other handheld).  Something that would allow me to connect to a wireless hub on a LAN, not to a internet service provider.  Kind of a stretch, but this is an unusual application.  :)  Does anyone have a recommendation as to where I can look?

RE: Palm on a LAN

you can probally try to find wireless NIC/Ethernet cards if possible. What you basiclly want to try to find is a Ethernet card, depending on the wireless network (such as Apple's Air, or Someother company) , you can find someone who makes a card for it, though I dont recall ever seeing one, I have seen plenty of palm ethernet adapters, but you had to plug a wire into them.

Symbol Technologies makes Palm and PocketPC OS devices that include 2MB wireless connectivity to wireless access points that then bridge into your ethernet. I've been using some of their other RF equipment for a while, and your started testing a Palm OS SPT 1700. I can telnet into my RS6000, run Oracle from the command line, get to my intranet web pages... Cool so far. Check out http://www.symbol.com/products/mobile_computers/mobile_palm.html.

I believe Palm has some new devices of their own coming out later in the year that will incorporate 802.11 and possibly Bluetooth options...
