WiFi does not connect on HP iPAQ RX3715

[ Edited ]

I have an HP iPAQ RX3715 (runs Windows Mobile 2003 4.21.1088), which used to connect to WiFi, however, since I changed internet service provider, this device does not connect to my WiFi router.  The wizard searches the SSID, and, prompts me  for a password which is incorrectly rejected.  I am sure because the same password worked smoothly with my sister's smartphone which runs on Android.  Other laptops running Windows XP SP3, Windows 7 and Windows Vista have no issues automatically connecting to this WiFi connection.

I have no way of updating the operating system on the HP iPAQ RX3715, if updates are available, except by temporarily downloading the files on another computer, and, trying to find a way to push the updates on the device, if updates are available.  
When checking within the options available for wireless within the device the following (incompatible) options are available:
Authentication: Open, Shared, WPA, WPA-PaSK
Data encryption: WEP, TKIP  
The Internet Service Provider ( technical said that the WiFi modem provided by them supports WPA-PSK/TKIP - and I have manually configured the device the accordingly, however, within the Configure Wireless Networks

 the SSID remains as connecting.  The ISP do not have connection logs, unfortunately i.e. no record of iPAD connecting.

Your ipaq does only support WPE security.

As Kaj already said , this version of PPC does not support WPA security.

It is an outdated version of the OS and HP will not be able to help you here.
