Connection manager for pocket PC

I have a pocket PC and SBC DSL service, but they do not offer a "connection manager" for the pocket PC so I can access my wireless LAN.

You don?t need a "connection manager" for your pocket PC from SBC DSL services as long as you setup a wireless router on your DSL connection. If your pocket pc has a feature to install a wireless card, you can gain access to Internet from the pocket PC.

Connection manager is only needed if you directly connected your PC to your DSL modem. If you want to connect without the connection manager you'll need to install a router between your DSL line and PC. In your case, you need a router with WAP features. Once you configure your router to your DSL connection, you can connect more than one PC behind your router without using connection manager.
