@fwilhelm I agree very cool ....especially to be able to post here on HPCFactor. Next I'll try it on one of my Jornada 720's. Love it! I just LOVE it!! Giving these little beasties a new life "out of the cage!"Still learning how to space my lines, do carriage return, but overall quite incredible to be online securely using a 20 year old WinCE device... I don't see why this won't work with J680, or MP880 either as the same ethernet cad or Kingston should do the trick. Pardon me while I determine the limits of the WRP proxy text box

I tried this and it works like a charm. Not having been online on my J720 for a long time (years), I am amazed by how quickly you can browse (albeit with simple pages, yes).

I was able to check today's scores on Indian Wells tennis :-)

Very nice!

Next step is to use this with an untethered wireless repeater so I can move this setup around. I used a tethered one since I had it around.

Thanks Joval!!!

Great hearing the excitement in your good news. The $13 ethernet to wifi adapter will run for hours and hours off a small USB cell phone charger battery... true portability. Wait until you give WRP a try.... and also... network storage to write posts and save for uploading later. Enjoy the little beastie "Jornada Unchained!"

I use my 680e (upgraded to 32mb rom) for email and basic browsing. Certain pages work and luckily they are news ones so i can read the news and check my email. Works for me. Yes i wish there were more it could do but im happy it can do anything at all ! :-)

...............................Yes, Frogfind is great for viewing text like Wikipedia articles and can download as htm text file. Add to that http://www.google.com/ enter search bar, click images then search and you can view thumbnail images to complement your wikipedia text... or to look up say, wiring a RJ45 cable, etc. I'll post photo later as I'm typing this on MP900c using WRP and can only post text.

posted ScreenSnap images from J720 with PIE 4.0 browser via http://www.google.com... search... images. See above. You are limited to low res thumbnail... true... and not all images will display...but still quite handy IMO. (Images transferred from J720 to network share on router usb_storage then via laptop to HPCFactor). Now, careful, watch out... stand back... this little beastie is...Uncaged!! Unchained!!! Beware ... now delivers a real Byte!!

Check out this cheap ethernet to secure WPA2 wifi set up... completely powered by the MP900c usb port and pcmcia slot. Fully mobile, battery lasts about 1 to 1.5 hours, everything turns off with MP900 power button. More compact versions are possible with smaller dongles, but you get the idea. Super cheapo way to get online!

Very cool indeed. Makes you wish that proprietary port on the Jornada 720 could be used to power the Wifi extender! :-)

What a surprise to find you here!!! @fantablium I've been a subscriber to your YT channel and enjoy it very much! I'm the dude that made a comment about your microphone levels on the video is to low (Low Volume) @johnny14794. After digging through my old stuff, found my Jornada 720 and decided to give it some life. Found a used but good battery replacement for the unit. Waiting on a purchase of a Oronoco Wifi Gold PCMCIA card I ordered and a cradle/dock. This website has been a blessing being able to find software and an active forum. There barely anything out there that I can find that has some software for the Jornada 700 - HandHeld PC 2000 (WindowsCE 3.0) series. So for now, just been tinkering again with my unit using a power supply and charging the batteries which gives me about 7+ hours of usage. Cheers and as always looking forward to your up coming YT vids.
