First make sure you enable the wireless button on the axim, then make sure you dissable the funk odyssey client by going to settings, then to connections.
After that tap on start, and then tap settings, select the connections tab tap on the dell wlan utility icon, tap on the settings button and then the configure wireless network window will show up. Tap on add new.... under network name input wireless, under connects to select the internet, make sure the option that says "this is a device-to-device (ad-hoc) connection" is disabled. Tap on the network key tab, choose open from the drop down menu nex to authentication, chooose dissable on the data encryption menu then tap ok.
If you have any of the following options in your access point make sure you dissable them:
Short Preamble, Cisco Extensions, Super G ,Turbo Boost , Speed Booster , eXtended Range (XR) , Passphrase or regenerating WEP keys , 152 bit encryption ,256 bit encryption , 512 bit encryption , MAC Address filtering
you may need to check out the users manual for your access point to see if it came with any of these options.
You mentioned you have all security options dissabled so thats a plus as well as having wep dissabled.
If all this does not work, do a soft reset, then a hard reset, if still no luck download the latest version of the rom from support.dell.com downloads section.
You might also want to see if by any chance there are any electronic gadgets causing interference.
Let me know if you are getting an IP adress as well.

Okay, guys & gals. Thanks. It took longer to discover the username and password, than it did to change from "Only g" to "both b and g."
One magic pulldown solved three days of anguish.
So, thanks, again.
There will be more questions, I'm sure.
I have followed all the instructions you gave in your post but still I can not connect. I have a home wireless network. Linksys "G" router. It is working fine on all my laptops but not this Aximx50v. I get the message Connot connect eith current settings. tonchange your connections settings tap Settings.
