Unfortunately, there's no wireless driver that can be found in the Web. If you are having issues with the wireless connection through the WiFi, you may try changing the wireless channel first before looking for a driver.

You need to refer to the user manual and see on how you are going to change the wireless channel of your device. The channel of the scanner should have the same channel to the device where it is wirelessly connected to.

If same problem occurs, then you need to contact the manufacturer and ask for a driver.

Have a great day!

you were sold a piece of junk! first contact seller. no joy there- post a complaint to e-bay. don't expect any miracles- they may try to lay it on something you did. sometimes just opening the package makes you responsible, in their opinion! i've had it happen! rarely. good luck!

How do I connect my N410 symbol bar code scanner (running on Windows Mobile) to my wireless router?

If you have a model with Wireless functionality, can you use the Fusion application to manage your wireless connection. There should be an icon in the right corner.
You need to find out which authentication and encryption is used on the specific WLAN.
Then launch through clicking on the Fusion icon the Find WLANs dialog and follow the process of creating of new WLAN Profile.

My wireless internet connection keeps hiccuping off and on closing my online gmaes/programs. what is the issue?

Could be a wide variety of problems causing this.

It could be a malfunction within your computer. Something to do with your wireless card. Even then, it could be a software issue or hardware issue. Make sure drivers are up to date. Very hard to tell if it is a hardware issue or not, would have to swap your wireless card for another to test it out.

It can be a defective wireless router. Sometimes they just get confused and drop all connections. You can attempt to flash it to a new firmware version, but the odds are that will not help. If the modem/router is to blame, replacing it is the best course of action. One way to test this is to connect to someone else router and see if your problem persists.

It can be signal interference, which can be caused by any electronic in your area such as a cordless phone, microwave or even a radio. To fix this issue you need to gain access into your routers/modems wireless configuration. When you are in them, change the "channel" it is running on to something else.

Those suggestions cover the basics and more common reasons. Hope it helps.

Symbol LS2208 barcode reader no data to screen

Just because it has a DB9 does not mean it is a direct connection. Many Bar code scanners have the DB9 connecting to a interface box and the interface box connects to the PC. If it is really a rs-232 scanner then you need to configure your serial port to the proper settings specified by symbol. But I am confident that this unit is missing the interface box.

Timing out

Hi, the units I dealt with were in a restaurant environment to their loading dock. Somewhat similar situation. During the day it would cut out whenever, or not connect at all between 11 and 2. After a LOT of investigation, came to find they installed a new microwave in the kitchen area. When they were using this unit the signal for the wireless was being interfered with and it was really busy between 11 and 2. The solution was to move the microwave. Have you installed ANYTHING new? microwave, radio, phones, intercoms, TV?Did a neighbor put something in?to test just unplug and see what signals you get. And just to let you know, when you start your unit, you get a fully function connection, when it sits idle sometimes it will drop to half duplex. Didn't figure that part out.
