What to do…
I recently worked on a Pocket PC by Symbol called the MC50. It comes with a wireless B networkcard. It network card stopped working. It is best to get the latest software from the Symbol website: Symbol Website Download.
After updating the software make sure to reset the Symbol MC50 Pocket PC. You can do this by flipping over the device and hitting the reset button. This button is a small hole just under the battery eject switch on the right hand side.
