I want to sync my 5500 running OZ 3.5.2 to a Windows XP desktop running Outlook via Intellisync 1.43. The 5500 is already networked via a wifi card and router.


The problem seems to be that there are only two Communication Options for the desktop Intellisync software: USB or serial. Neither will allow me to specify the correct address for my Zaurus, they instead give me an error:
"Please change USB IP address on Zaurus to"

I've read through all the threads which relate to this, and I haven't seen any solutions that fit my problem. They all seem to require that access to the Z be through a wifi card on the desktop, rather than a router.

Any ideas? I'm a bit of a networking n00b, Is there a way in XP to trick the system into substiting one outbound IP for another? Or perhaps the intellisync software can be hacked to get around the error message? Or am I missing something obvious...

Hello all,

I just dusted off my 5500 and decided to play with it again. Installed 3.5.2 Collie 64-0 Image and Wireless via Belkin Card and Router works like a charm (at least for pinging).

Installed Sharp Intellisync 1.43 on the PC.


-Can I Sync via wireless to Outlook and if so, how? I really would prefer not to use the cradle. Zaurus and Desktop are both on the same subnet.

-What changes should I make from the start to keep my root from filling up (I remember that being a problem last time. Lardman mentioned uninstalling some apps and reinstalling them. Which apps should I do that with, and how should I reinstall them in order to ensure they wind up on SD? An example command line syntax or somesuch is what I'm looking for, not sure which installer to use, as I read many reports of problems.

-Any recommendations for things to try out? I gather Opera is the recommended browser, Opie-reader the recommended reader. Any other app recommendations or changes to make right after install?
