Pac-mate,


david
 

Good morning all;

is there anyone out their using the Pac-mate?

for those of you who don't know, Pac Mate  is a versatile portable computer with built-in JAWS to provide speech or Braille access to Windows® Mobile® applications for people who

are blind.

this is a very old product.

never the less, my friend has one, and wants to connect the PDA is a personal digital assistant or personal data assistant, a mobile electronic device wirelessly.

He has a QX400,

he has an old LinksysWireless-GCompactFlashCard.

we have successfully downloaded the drivers to the device,

and we're able to see his network, however, we're unable to connect.

any advice is helpful.

Hi all,

I don't know the answer to your question except to say that this legacy equipment is like working with a doorstop. Good luck.

Interesting. I'm familiar with the device, although I haven't used it in over six years or so and I remember next to nothing about it. My guess, and I could be way off here, might be the network protocol the Pac Mate supports, such as WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc. I'm wondering if the router is using a newer protocol not supported by the Pac Mate. If the Pac Mate's network settings allow you to access and change protocols that's the first thing I'd try, although older protocols may not offer you the level of security found in newer ones.
