Ethernet cradles provide LAN connectivity for up to 4 devices. In the ideal case cradled mobile unit gets IP address automatically from a DHCP server. But Ethernet cradle support does not work self-evidently on all Motorola terminal types.
Generally can be said that Ethernet cradle support without the need of some additional software installation is available on devices of MPA 1.5 or higher platform versions.Ethernet cradle support may require change of the mobile unit's USB port settings.
For older types of mobile devices (MC9060, MC9090, WT4090 etc.) it isneccessary to install software iDock or eConnect into devices first. This software may be obtained from Zebra Support site.
