I have a mobile device "Intermec CN50" running Windows 6.1

I assigned it an IP an can ping it from my PC as long as it is not connected to PC with USB cable, when connected by USB the ping does not reply.

What should I do to make it networked whether it is connected to PC with USB cable or not?

Generally speaking, when Windows Mobile/CE device is cradled or connected to the PC via USB, it's networking functions are disabled.

Hi smetechit, can I know what are you trying to achieve by connecting the USB to the PC? USB connection is barely for transferring images/data or charging the mobile.

if you need Intermec CN50 to connect to a network/laptop via ethernet cable, you can achieve it by using an AD24 ethernet multidock device > http://epsfiles.intermec.com/eps_files/eps_man/943-227.pdf

Hi OP Zaharin,

I am developing a .net application using Visual Studio 2008 and want to deploy and debug my application on Intermech CN50, the application connects to a SQL server 2008 database. So, I need the usb and network connection at the same time.

smetechit,
i am not sure if u can debug your application in the device itself, however there are several methods to install your application into Intermech CN50:
1- using Smartsystem: www.intermec.com/SmartSystems
2- using Microsoft Activesync: www.windowsmobile.com/getstarted
3- copy your installer/application into CN50 microSD Card on your pc. insert your microSD card back to the CN50. navigate to the storage card folder and run your application.

As Wi-Fi is disabled when USB is connected, how can I connect the device to my notebook sql server using Bluetooth?

note: Bluetooth is On while USB is connected.

You can actually upload the application through SmartSystems and never need to connect with USB.  Just right click the device and Remote Control Device, on the left window you have a file structure that you can drag your application into, so you dont have to plug in the USB and then loose your WIFI.

- yes as pointed out by bill30 and as per my suggestion to use either smartsystem or microsoft activesyn or takeout the microsd card put it into your laptop sdcard slot - you can copy/upload the application. then run your application directly from the phone. not from the laptop.
