SOURCE: mc9060 loosing wireless profile after a cold boot

This is a very common problem with this scanner, especially if its running Windows CE rather than Pocket PC or Windows Mobile.
Every time the terminal cold boots (has been left a significant time without the main battery and backup battery is depleted) it will rebuild any configurations from reg files saved within the Application folder on the device.
To save the wireless settings the profile (and options for peace of mind) need to be save/exported. This is done by hitting the wireless icon located in eth taskbar on the right hand side, from the menu select options. This pops up a box which contains a drop down box, from this select "export" then you can export profiles and options. Each time you will be prompted to save, use default and the relevant reg file will be saved to the Application folder and hence the settings will now persist through an old boot.

Mc9060 no sound: in setting i set it to the high volume setting - enter - then check it is back to the lowest setting- not holding change in settings


you need to connect the handheld to your PC and then use software to change settings for the device. There is no other way for the settings to persist a cold boot.

I cannot set the static IP for my MC9090. I went into Network Connections and have tried to Specify a valid IP address, Subnet and Gateway. I press ok. Then when I run cmd, I then type ipconfig and it...


Hi Jim,

I remember having the exact same problem when I first used the MC9090. It works on such other devices like the Datalogic Viper, but not the MC9090.

The IP is set within the wireless profile.

On the radio icon in the task bar select Wireless Profiles. This box then holds all your wireless profiles, including the default Motorola "out of box". Hold down the stylus on the screen and select "Add New" follow the prompts. When you get to IP Address from the pull down menu select static and then next this will take you to another screen where you can add your details.

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.

The other way is to close the WLAN profile and selection options, from the pull down menu select export and save all profiles.

Hope this helps.

Configuring MC9090 default settings


Hi

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.

Alow a scanner into the network


When you setup the wireless profile you set the SSID, WEP, IP etc. Which I'm sure you already know. Quite a few people forget the fact that they sometimes need to set a static IP if they do not have a DHCP server. Also if you set the WEP encryption keys incorrect the MC9090 will give you the green signal bar, but you can not get it onto the network, this has confused quite a few people in the past. 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.

The last thing to check is the regulatory options; if you wireless profile is showing a yellow warning triangle this is usually the problem. From the wireless icon in the task bar, select options and then from the pull down select “Regulatory”. Un-tick 802.11d and select the correct country. Then from the pull down select export and export options, this will make them persist through an old boot.

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.

Wireless configuration problem. It lost parameters I had imposted.


If you are using a MC909X, after entering the static IP address and WEP key etc. via the Wireless Configuration Editor, you can export the profile you created by going to the Manage Profiles area, tapping and holding the profile name until the menu appears, then select export, it will create a registry file in the Application folder of the device that will persist after a cold boot, and the settings will will not be lost.
