Windows CE + Casca = Madness
I am doing another small business startup, yea, I'm bored. Anyway wound up with this sylvania netbook (not mine) to configure and the damn Windows CE is not user friendly, noob friendly, but geesh.
My issue is getting the darn thing to attach to either a wireless or wired network, oh it sees it, but I cannot find out how to make the password entry take the password.
I'll of course surf the freakin net, but come on, its real simple task, wireless some hassle, sure, but I attached to my router via wire and still nada.
I am of course suspecting the dialup access since it is the first to try, so I am gonna disable the 3g driver and rework the setup, but i am not seeing familiar panels that should be there.
Yes, I know this is a toy, but its worth a little effort for some CE knowledge, you know that giant market for CE. ;P
As I was, so I remain until he returns.
Got it, once i got rid of the clutter i just forced the ip address and wins, down and dirty but it works
Only experience I've had with CE was on my first smartphone, which was very buggy and short-lived, running Windows Mobile. We did have a few "desktop" machines at work running CE years ago that the clerks used. I took a look at one of them once, I thought it was the stupidest, fugliest incarnation of Windows I had ever seen. But that was way before Windows 8
