How to Convert a Symbol DOS Series Terminal from Spring (pre-802.11) to 802.11 Protocol?

Answer

RF protocol mismatch; terminal has been previously configured for Spring and is not recognized by existing AP-2411 operating on the 802.11 protocol.
The newly introduced terminal must be converted from Spring protocol to 802.11.
  1. Cold boot the terminal; device will display the following: SOFTWARE UPDATE; Update? [y/n]:
  2. Within 4 seconds, press the “y” to answer YES to prompt. The following will be displayed: RF PROTOCOL UPDATE OPPORTUNITY; Update RF protocol [y/n]:
  3. Within 10 seconds, press the “y” to answer YES to prompt. The following will be displayed: RF protocol currently pre 802.11; select option 3 for “Make 802.11”
  4. The next prompt will display: “Enter password”.  Key in password RFPROT, then press ENTER.  The device will continue to boot and is now converted for 802.11 protocol.
