Cisco Wireless Network

Cisco Wireless Network

Cisco Wireless Network

We have a Barcode application running under SCO UNix 5.0.5.  The barcodes are read on our shop floor using Symbol Scanners attatched to Wyse 60 Terminals attached to ports on a digi port server.  The port servers are wired to a Cisco Aironet Bridge which sends a Wireless signal to a Cisco Access point, which is connected via a Cisco Switch to our Unix Server.  

Occasionaly, a barcode will be scanned AND registerd as a good scan, but the part of the barcoded data is replaced with other characters.  (Eg:  If I have a barcode which clearly should read as 1234, it will read 1 time out of 30 as 12&4).  I thought that this might be the result of a transimssion error somewhere in the wireless portion of the network, since the barcode scans correctly most of the time and only occasionally (irrespective of the terminal bing used) send the incorrect information to the server.  Has anyone seen this with Wireless Appliances before?  Is there a solution?

Thanks in advance
