PDT8146 question I want to take out the radio card on my PDT8146 and run it in batch mode like an PDT8100 how can I do this? Will taking the radio card out do it or do I need to turn off software setting...


Yes, taking the radio out will make the unit batch. There is no sofware switch to tell the scanner, you need to reflash it with Batch Platform Hex file. Let me know what Operating System you have and which Processor. XScale or Strong Arm and I can get you the right files. I can provide steps necessary for this request.

Need to reload Symbol PDT 6846 scanners


To configure the terminal Ctrl-C to drop you to a DOS prompt then type cfg11 this will then take you a configuration screen where you can enter wireless and IP settings.

I can’t say about what program you are trying to load. If you get the system to associate then the next step is to configure the host settings.

FUNC-CTL-R at the Connect to Host screen

Password: system

Then you can add host settings.

It’s a shame we fix PDT6846's all the time and if we replace the board reconfigure them for the customer.

We are having trouble to get a PDT 6846 Portable Terminals radio to connect to a Cisco 1121G Access point. Any setting that need to be tweaked?


Yes...there are lots of things you need to tweak. Contact Motorola Support (they bought Symbol) at 1-800-653-5350. You may need to create a script to run with the CISCO AP's...Symbol defaults to their own Access Point settings. Good Luck. If you need further help, our company, qdata, can help (for a fee)

Contact me at 1-866-306-7226.

Looking for software to scan barcodes,


There should be an Exel program loaded onto the unit. You will have enable the scanner through a program. Or simply develop custom application (very costly) or contact us for better solution.

Symbol PDT 6846 - Scanner won't read 13 digit barcodes (program returns "not on file"). How do we update the scanner application?


This sounds like a programming issue. What application are you using? If you are using a terminal emulation software then you will need to check your host for the issue. If you are using a batch program where the files are stored on the scanner then you will need to check your "validation" files to make sure the code you are scanning is in the scanner.

Wavelink update 5.1 to 7.1


the prelicensing that comes with the symbol units is only for version 5, to upgrade you need to buy a license. its part of the marketing
