Question about Symbol MC9090-G RFID Handheld Barcode Scanner
If the battery goes dead, we always have to go back to LAN settings and re-enter the wireless settings. We have to reset our profile and re-enter the encryption pass key. Why is this happening?
When you set the wireless profile you set the SSID, WEP, IP etc. Which I'm sure you already know. Now you want to make them persist through either a cold boot or when the terminal has been left without a battery for a substantial amount of time.
This can be done 2 ways. When the profile has been set up highlight it by holding down the stylus on it and from the menu select export. This saves the registry key to the Application folder; a folder which persist through a cold boot. When it does cold boot it takes all the registry keys from the Application folder and builds 1 complete key and thus details of the wireless profile are imported.
The other way is to close the WLAN profile and selection options, from the pull down menu select export and save all profiles. Has a lightly different registry key setting. The bonus about this is if you pull note the registry key file name you can then browse for the key using active sync and copy it to a host PC. You can then copy this key to any other device and cold boot and hey presto your wireless profile appears. You would of course need to change a static IP and export the profile again to overwrite the existing one. If you didn’t export again you would get duplicate IP’s on the network.
TIP: Always take a not of terminals MAC address and match the serial numbers or specific ID’s. If you do ever get duplicate IP’s you can trace the offending device using the MAC address and the list you create.
