Question about IBM ThinkPad T41 Notebook

1 Answer

Keys that have Alpha and Numeric always show numeric and not alph

Each time I try to use the key board on my laptop the keys with alpha and numeric always print numeric and not alpha. Because of this I use a separate key board. This keyboard use did not cause my problem.

Thank you!

'tab' button doesn't work on Motorola MC3190


You get 3 different keypad models of the Motorola MC3190:
- 28 Key Numeric
- 38 Key Shifted Alpha
- 48 Key Alpha Numeric

So depending on the type of keyboard your model has, using TAB are different across these 3 keypads.

Please Note: Keypad functions can be changed by an application so the mobile computer keypad may not function as described.

When the FUNC button is pressed the icon "F" appears on the taskbar on WinCE devices or the icon "Blue Circle" appears at the bottom of the screen on Windows Mobile 6.1 devices.

In order to use the TAB function, do the following:

28 Key Numeric - Press the blue FUNC button (Bottom right next to Power button), and press the RIGHT ARROW button.

38 Key Shifted Alpha - Press the blue FUNC button (Right side below RIGHT ARROW button), and press the RIGHT ARROW button.

48 Key Alpha Numeric - Press the blue FUNC button (Right side below ENTER button) and press the number 9 button.

I am trying to add a laptop to my router. previously we had a geeksquad to it for our first laptop. which alph numeric number is my security code


The alpha numeric code are HEX numbers and this is the encrtption key.
The wireless router is configured with the encryption key and you configure your wireless card in your computer with the router's encryption settings, then other computers with a wireless card cannot access your router wirelessly unless they know the encryption setting. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to secure your wireless router :-

Create a barcode for F1 and F2 using Labelview


If you have created your barcodes as "F1" and "F2" you will have to create two Advanced Data Formatting rules with the LS2208 Product Reference Guide. This link will take you to the manual. Print only the barcodes you need from the list below then scan them in the order they are listed:
Begin New Rule
Specific String at Start
F (from the Alpha-numeric section of manual)
1 (from the Alpha-numeric section of manual)
End of message (from the Alpha-numeric section of manual)
Send F1 Key
Save Rule
Begin New Rule
Specific String at Start
F
2
End of Message
Send F2
Save Rule

That should do it!
