I have had my HP IPAQ 5555 for about a year. I am very pleased with it.

It is not problem free. At one point WiFi just stopped working. I never really pursued the issue and do not know why.

About a month later, getting out of a cab in a major downpour the PDA fell into inches of swiftly moving gutter water. It was totally under for seconds, in the leatherette case. Obviously, it did not work. I was sure it was atotal loss.

A friend took it immediately opened it up and dryed it with a hair drier.

After putting it back together after several attempts to start it and rest it, it worked!

And get this, the WiFi worked!!!

I had lost some data and non-pre installed programs, but these were recovered once I got ActiveSync working.

It has been woring just fine for about 6 - 8 months. I use it for surfing the web on the road, and Outlook sync between my office and home computers.

Now the bad news. Two days ago my WiFi just stopped working. This is the reason I am surfing to find some solutions.

Any ideas beyond resetting, etc., would be greatly appreciated. Even directions to a more relevant thread.

I am brand new to TechRepublic researching this issue.
