Symbol MC9090 unable to connect to wireless network...
I have a Motorola Symbol MC9090. I am trying to get it to connect to our wireless network. It picks up the signal, but cannot connect. I have checked and rechecked the settings (WEP key, IP Address, WIFI is turned on, etc.) and everything seems ok. I brought it home, and was able to connect it to my home network without any problems. Any suggestions?

Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) allow mobile computers to communicate wirelessly and send captured data to a host device in real time. Before using the mobile computer on a WLAN, the facility must be set up with the required hardware to run the wireless LAN and the mobile computer must be configured. Refer to the documentation provided with the access points (APs) for instructions on setting up the hardware. To configure the mobile computer, a set of wireless applications provide the tools to configure and test the wireless radio in the mobile computer. The Wireless Application menu on the task tray provides the following wireless applications: • Wireless Status • Wireless Diagnostics • Find WLANs • Manage Profiles • Options • Enable/Disable Radio • Log On/Off Tap the Signal Strength icon to display the Wireless Applications menu
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.

Hi there, this one might help since the OS is Windows mobile 5. the settings on your handheld might be quite different but still this may work. Please turn on wi-fi. There is a small icon below for wireless simply tick that and it will turn on wi-fi. Once you turn it on it will detect available wireless networks or you may simply go to Start menu and select settings. Go to connections and select network. It will give you available wireless networks. If prompted for the pass key or encryption, use the encryption set to the wireless network you're trying to connect with. Once you input the correct key you should be good to go.
You can try to connect to it through the DB-9 serial port on the front (you need a null modem serial cable). The CLI interface isn't very intuitive but if you can connect this way you might be able to reset it to factory defaults or reload the latest firmware. If not then get a new one.
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.
