I have a Palm T|X which boasts a fast 312MHz ARM based processor and integral Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It’s a fantastic device but unfortunately seems to be quite fussy about the model of Wi-Fi access point it will connect to. I have two Linksys Wi-Fi routers configured exactly the same (802.11b/g mixed mode, WPA-PSK & MAC address filtering) but while it connects flawlessly to a Linksys WRT54G, it can’t maintain a stable connection to a Linksys WAG354G.
Neither manufacturer will take any responsibility for investigating the incompatibilty, so my only advise is to avoid the WAG354G access point if you have a Palm TX.
On the applications front I can recommend the following:
- AeroPlayer from Aerodrome Software – playback of MPEG4-AAC, Ogg Vorbis and MP3 digital audio files.
- TealScript – an advanced replacement for Palm’s Graffiti2.
- DateBk5 from Pimlico Software – a replacement for Palm’s basic Datebook application which uses the same databases but adds loads more functionality. Once you have used it, there’s no going back!
