How do I connect my N410 symbol bar code scanner (running on Windows Mobile) to my wireless router?

If you have a model with Wireless functionality, can you use the Fusion application to manage your wireless connection. There should be an icon in the right corner.
You need to find out which authentication and encryption is used on the specific WLAN.
Then launch through clicking on the Fusion icon the Find WLANs dialog and follow the process of creating of new WLAN Profile.
