Introduction

LAN’s allow mobile computers to communicate wirelessly and send captured data to the

    host device in real time. Most mobile Symbol devices support the IEEE 802.11a/b/g

    standards. 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.

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 WLAN’s

    ? Manage Profiles

    ? Options

    ? Enable/Disable Radio (Only for Windows Mobile 5.0)

    ? Log on/Off

     * If you do not see the wireless Icon in the task tray, go to Start > Program Files >

    Communication > Fusion. Click on WLaunch
