All of the software and documents are designed to be installed on
your personal computer to enhance your ability to use your HP
iPAQ Pocket PC to its fullest potential. The CD also contains
Microsoft add-on software applications and Pocket PC
enhancements that can be installed directly onto your Pocket PC
for use “on the go.”
Note: It is recommended that you save the CD sleeve for future
use. It contains the product key for installing Microsoft Outlook.
How Do I Install Microsoft ActiveSync?
Microsoft ActiveSync, located on the Companion CD, is the
software that allows your Pocket PC and your personal computer
to communicate with each other.
Before you connect your Pocket PC to your computer, insert the
Companion CD in your computer and let the HP iPAQ Setup
Wizard guide you step-by-step in setting up your Pocket PC and
computer.
Note: If the HP iPAQ Setup Wizard detects an earlier version
of ActiveSync or Outlook on your computer, it prompts you to
install the most recent version from the Companion CD. It is
recommended that you do so; however, be sure to back up your
files before installation begins.
To run the HP iPAQ Setup Wizard and install Microsoft
ActiveSync:
1. Before you connect your Pocket PC to your computer with
the synchronization cable, insert the Companion CD that
came with your Pocket PC into the CD-ROM drive on your
computer. The HP iPAQ Setup Wizard starts automatically.
2
2. Select Setup Wizard.
3. Read the Welcome page, make sure your Pocket PC is not
connected to your computer yet, and select Next.
4. The Setup Wizard scans your system and recommends
programs for you to load. If the Setup Wizard detects an
earlier version of Microsoft Outlook installed on your
personal computer, it suggests installing Outlook 2002. If you
want to synchronize your calendar, contacts, inbox, notes,
and/or tasks, it is recommended that you allow the Setup
Wizard to install Outlook 2002. Earlier versions (such as
Microsoft Outlook Express) will not work with ActiveSync
and the Pocket PC.
5. Likewise, the Setup Wizard scans your system to detect
earliers versions of Window Media Player and HP Image
Zone. It is recommended that you allow the Wizard to install
these programs in order to take advantage of all functions on
your Pocket PC.
3
6. When the Set Up Microsoft ActiveSync window is
displayed, click Next.
7. When the Select Installation Folder for Microsoft
ActiveSync window is displayed, accept the default location
offered, or select Change... to specify a a different location.
8. When the File Download window is displayed, click Open.
4
You will know ActiveSync installed successfully when you see
the Set Up a Partnership screen. Proceed to the next section,
“How Do I Create an ActiveSync Partnership?”
Note: If you are having trouble installing ActiveSync and have
firewall software installed, try disabling the firewall software
during ActiveSync installation and enabling it again after
installation is complete. If you are connected to a corporate
firewall, contact your IT Administrator for assistance.
How Do I Create an ActiveSync
Partnership?
A Microsoft ActiveSync partnership allows your HP iPAQ Pocket
PC and your personal computer to communicate with each other.
To synchronize your Pocket PC and your personal computer, you
must first create a partnership using ActiveSync. You only need
to create a partnership once.
These instructions give information on creating a basic
partnership. Other partnership options are available, and
instructions can be found in Chapter 2, “Synchronizing with Your
Computer,” of the User’s Guide located on the Companion CD.
5
To create an ActiveSync partnership between your Pocket PC and
your personal computer:
1. When the Get Connected screen is displayed during
ActiveSync installation, connect the desktop cradle to your
personal computer by attaching the free end of either the
USB cable or the serial cable to either the USB port or the
serial port on your personal computer. Then connect one end
of the AC Adapter to the cradle and the other end to an
electrical outlet.
2. Turn on your Pocket PC by pressing the Power button, then
insert it into the desktop cradle.
6
3. When the Set Up a Partnership screen is displayed, select
Standard Partnership and click Next.
4. When the New Partnership screen is displayed, select
Synchronize with this desktop computer, then click Next.
7
5. When the Select Number of Partnerships screen is
displayed, choose whether you want to synchronize with one
computer or two (e.g., home and office).
6. When the Select Synchronization Settings screen is
displayed, check the items you want to synchronize between
your Pocket PC and your personal computer.
8
7. When the Setup Complete screen is displayed, click Finish.
ActiveSync immediately begins synchronizing.

How Do I Synchronize My Pocket PC
to a Personal Computer?
Synchronizing your Pocket PC and your personal computer
allows you to keep the same information (such as calendar,
contacts, and e-mails) in both places, making it available when
you work on your personal computer or when you take your
Pocket PC on the go. There are several ways to synchronize your
Pocket PC with your personal computer:
■
Desktop cradle
■
Optional AutoSync Cable
■
Bluetooth
■
Infrared
■
Wi-Fi and a server
The most common way to synchronize is using the desktop cradle
with the USB synchronization cable. This section explains how to
synchronize using the desktop cradle.
To synchronize your personal computer and your Pocket PC:
1. Be sure ActiveSync is installed on your personal computer.
Refer to “How Do I Install Microsoft ActiveSync?” earlier in
this document for more information.
2. Be sure the desktop cradle is connected to your personal
computer with the USB synchronization cable.
3. Place your Pocket PC in the desktop cradle. Synchronization
begins automatically.
Note: If you must log onto a server such as your company’s
Virtual Private Network, you may receive a message from
ActiveSync telling you it is unable to synchronize. You must first
log onto the server in order for ActiveSync to synchronize.
10
If ActiveSync does not begin synchronizing, start it manually:
On your personal computer, open ActiveSync by clicking from
the Start menu > Programs > Microsoft ActiveSync > Sync.
Occasionally when attempting to synchronize to a personal
computer, you might receive an “Unable to Detect Device” error
message. This usually means your desktop cradle is not properly
connected to the synchronization cable, or your Pocket PC is not
seated firmly in the desktop cradle.
If you get this error:
1. Make sure the USB connector on the synchronization cable is
securely connected to your desktop cradle and your personal
computer.
2. Make sure that your Pocket PC is connecting to the
communications port in the desktop cradle.
Once the connection issue is resolved, ActiveSync begins
synchronizing automatically.
To find out how to resolve other error messages, see Chapter 12,
“Troubleshooting” in the User’s Guide located on the
Companion CD.
Do you want to learn more about:
■
synchronizing with the optional AutoSync Cable?
■
synchronizing using Bluetooth?
■
synchronizing using Infrared?
■
synchronizing using Wi-Fi and a server?
Refer to the User’s Guide on the Companion CD.
11
How Do I Synchronize My Messaging,
Contacts, or Calendar?
If you did not previously set up your Messaging, Contacts, or
Calendar to synchronize with your Pocket PC when ActiveSync
was first loaded, you can set it or remove the setting whenever
you want.
To synchronize a new selection with your Pocket PC:
1. Double-click the Microsoft ActiveSync icon in the system
tray of your personal computer.
2. In the ActiveSync Window, click Options > Sync Options
tab.
3. On the Sync Options page, check the items you want
synchronized and uncheck those you do not want
synchronized.
Note: It is recommended that you check the Synchronize mobile
device clock upon connecting so your Pocket PC and your
personal computer always agree on the date and time. If this box
is not checked, files can accidentally be overwritten during
synchronization due to differences in dates and times on the files.
4. Under the Schedule tab, choose whether you want to
synchronize Continuously, On connection, or Manually. If
necessary, you can also select options for scheduling
synchronization with a server, or using a wireless connection.
5. Click OK to save the settings and minimize the ActiveSync
window.
6. The items selected will automatically synchronize with the
Pocket PC when it is inserted in the desktop cradle and the
computer is turned on.
12
How Do I Troubleshoot Outlook Errors
When Attempting to Synchronize
Messaging, Contacts, or Calendar?
When synchronizing, you may receive various error messages.
For answers to troubleshooting these errors, refer to the Microsoft
Windows Mobile 2003 Web site at
www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/resources/support/pocketpc.

TodayPanel.
3. Tap OK to save the changes.
27
How Do I Set Up My Pocket PC
to Use Wi-Fi?
Your iPAQ Pocket PC comes with Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi)
already installed. This means you do not need to use cables or
plug in to a network wall connection to access the Internet with
your Pocket PC. All you need are wireless access points to
transmit data to and from your Pocket PC using Wi-Fi.
Note: Most private corporations already have wireless access
points installed in their buildings. Visit your local computer store
for information on installing wireless access points in your home.
Powering Wi-Fi On or Off
To use Wi-Fi on your Pocket PC, you need to turn on Wi-Fi and
set up your device.
Note: The Wi-Fi antenna for the Pocket PC is located in the top
of the unit. If you cover up the top of the Pocket PC after you
have turned on Wi-Fi, signal strength diminishes.
To turn Wi-Fi on or off:
1. From the Today screen, tap the iPAQ Wireless icon (
the Command bar located at the bottom of the screen.
) in
2. Tap the Wi-Fi button on the iPAQ Wireless screen.
When Wi-Fi is powered on, the Wi-Fi icon on the iPAQ
Wireless screen turns from gray to amber to green and the
Wi-Fi light-emitting diode (LED), located on the top left
corner of the unit, is solid blue indicating Wi-Fi or Bluetooth
are on.
28
Note: Even though the indicator is blue to indicate Wi-Fi is
turned on, it does not necessarily mean a connection has been
established with another device or access point.
If Wi-Fi is off, the Wi-Fi icon turns from green to gray.
Battery Saving Tip: Turn Wi-Fi off when you are not using it.
When Wi-Fi is on, be sure one of the Wi-Fi power saving
modes is selected. Refer to “Powering Wi-Fi On or Off” in
the User’s Guide for more information.

Your HP iPAQ Pocket PC can connect to a network using Wi-Fi.
Note: Before connecting, it will be helpful to familiarize
yourself with the following wireless technology terms.
Term
Definition
Wireless Protection
Authentication (WPA)
An Interim Standard designed to work with
existing Wi-Fi products enabled with WEP.
It ensures that the individual is who he/she
claims to be by scrambling the keys and by
adding integrity-checking features.
Wired Equivalent
Privacy (WEP)
A security protocol designed to provide a
wireless local area network (WLAN) with
the same level of security usually expected
on a LAN.
Encryption
A conversion process of data that cannot
be easily understood by unauthorized
people. Basically, it is a method for
protecting data.
Internet Protocol (IP)
Address
A 128-bit number that identifies each
sender or receiver of information which is
sent in packets across the Internet. For
example, when you request an HTML page
or send e-mail, the Internet Protocol part of
TCP/IP includes your IP address in the
message. In this example, this information
identifies your computer as the sender
and/or receiver of information.
Wireless Fidelity
(Wi-Fi)
The term used for a high-frequency
wireless LAN.
802.11b
The standard specification for WLANs,
often called Wi-Fi, developed by the
Institute of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers (IEEE).
(Continued)
32
(Continued)
Term
Definition
Media Access Control
(MAC) Address
A computer’s unique hardware number in a
network. For example, on an Ethernet LAN,
it’s the same as your Ethernet address.
When you are connected to the Internet a
correspondence table relates your IP
address to your computer’s MAC address
on the LAN.
Hotspots
Public or private areas where there is a
wireless access point available. These
wireless connections could be located, for
example, at a library or cyber cafe.
Wireless Access Point
A point of access to a wireless connection
to a network.
Security Set Identifier
(SSID)
A sequence of characters uniquely defining
(naming) a WLAN. Basically, each set of
wireless devices communicating with each
other is called a basic service set (BSS).
Several BSSs can be joined to form one
logical WLAN, called an extended service
set (ESS). An SSID is simply the 1-32
alphanumeric, case sensitive name given
to each ESS.
