View Full Version : Dell Axim X510 Issues

November 13th, 2006, 09:55 AM
I have 3 Dell Axim X510 running NR I have some problems which also occured on an older version of NR... Anyone else out there with a Dell that is having luck?

1 - The devices periodically "hang". The only solution is to do a hard reboot (push stylus in reset button on back). This happens about once a day. I haven't found the root cause. I have 1 wireless access point in my home (and get great coverage), but I will try adding one or two more. Perhaps it is having a network issue.

2 - The wireless on/off button is very easy to press when pulling it out of the charger. Is there a way to disable this? Drives my nuts.

Thanks, Dave

What server apps are you running, Dave? MediaBridge only? MediaBridge and Girder? Etc?

MCE, Media Bridge, Girder - all latest versions.
not much else on the server other than virus protection, backup, etc.

System has plenty of CPU and RAM and is generally idle.

Strange. Even with the network dropping it shouldn't hang (requiring doing a soft reset).

We'll be releasing a version shortly that may correct an issue in Girder that we've noticed, can you give it a try and let us know if it corrects the issue(s)?

Absolutely. I have tried a bunch of resolutions. They seemed to have helped, but not fixed my problem. I have: (1) added another WAP to my home to make sure there is a good signal everywhere and (2) upgraded the ROM in the Dell PPCs.

Is it possible to have Girder start with a higher priority? I'm wondering if it ever hangs when the server is busy. As Girder puts no significant load on my server, I don't mind it having a higher priority.

Let me know which version you want me to try and I'll load it up.
