    For what it's worth, I resolved a problem with my Palm T3 & PalmOne Wi-Fi card that plagued me for the better part of a year.

    I thought the card was dead.

    I kept getting fatal errors when the card would search and try to connect to WiFi networks. I spent time on the phone with Palm Tech Support to no avail - only the suggestion to wipe and restore my system - which I did, with no success.

    After some go-around, the Palm Tech decided it was a hardware failure - and unfortunately, my card was out of warranty, and this was going to cost me between $50 - $100 for repair or replacement. I opted for inaction.

    After about 9 months, I looked at the card sitting on my desk and decided to give it a shot once more. This time, it found a wifi network and then told me that "VPN was not able to be used, would I still like to connect to the network?" I said "yes", and voila it connected!

    I realized that I had recently toyed with the VPN settings to see if the Palm setting matched the Cisco settings where I work. Interestingly, when I tried disabling the VPN and connecting, I would get the fatal error again.

    Apparently, there was something bad in the VPN profiles that was causing fatal errors. I deleted all the accounts in the VPN Preference and disabled it, and this seems to have fixed my problem.

    My PalmOne Wi-Fi card has risen from the dead!
