The 9090 will continuously reboot when someone has cold booted it and has held the trigger down too long after the cold boot. What it's doing is looking for OS update files in the proper directory to do a system update. When it doesn't find them it just reboots again continuously.

To get out of this, cold boot it again but release the trigger right after you push in the battery.

Function keys on MC9090

Sound like you need to look at your Keyboard mapping files, easiest way to fix this is to use Motorola System Configuration Manager - Downloadable from the Motorola website.
If the unit need to be restored to factory defaults, than a fast way is to run the Clean boot files from the SD Card also downloadable via the Motorola site - search for 'MC9090 Clean boot'

Motorola Symbol MC9090-GFOHJEFA6WR - The touch screen is worn and no longer works properly. Can I relplace it myself?

If you really want to? But we can do a touchscreen only replacement (parts + labor) for $95. It is safer than trying yourself.

Connect MC9090-G to an Intermec 2100 Access Point

Make sure that the ESS ID and security features match the ones on the AP.

Also, from the MC9090, you will need to click on the radio icon, select options and in the top drop down menu, choose regulatory. select the country where you are and uncheck the box named enable 802.11d.

This should have the terminal connected on to the network.
