Fatal Alerts

I am receiving Fatal Alerts after I installed the Wi-Fi software, or when selecting or editing a Wi-Fi Network.
If you went through the software installation and are receiving Fatal Alerts when selecting or editing a Wi-Fi network, you may need to reinstall the palmOne Wi-Fi Card software. Before reinstalling the Wi-Fi software, you will need to Hard Reset your handheld.
