My Zaurus runs Sharp ROM V3.13 and I'm using the Symbol Networker CF wifi card. When I first installed the card and set up the Network information, all was well. I quickly accessed a local wifi signal, and also the signal provided at work. No glitches whatsoever. Then, a few days later, i started getting the message, "Could not locate remote server" in Opera after attempting to load a web site - any web site. The wifi icon shows Connected status, and in Network>Current there is a >80% signal strength, with 20-35% signal quality. Yet, I can't access the web.

The only change that I can recall, between proper wifi performance and no wifi performance, is transferring all my contacts from MS Outlook to the Z using the Z interface.

Because I am Linux-illiterate, I'm not sure even where to begin. There is nothing to re-install or uninstall. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

For anyone who may care... Got it working again by deleting the 2 original setups in Settings>Network, then setting them up again. Everything okey-dokey biggrin.gif
