Connecting to Your Network through the Printer’s Ethernet Port

To use a wired print server (Ethernet) connection, you may need to configure the printer to communicate with your Local Area Network (LAN).
For additional information about Zebra print servers, refer to the ZebraNet Wired and Wireless Print Server User Guide. To download the latest version of this guide, go to zebra.com/manuals.
  1. After you install the drivers (see Installing the Drivers), connect the printer to an Ethernet cable that is connected to your network.
  2. Plug the A/C power cord into the A/C power connector on the back of the printer.
  3. Plug the A/C power cord into an appropriate power outlet.
  4. Turn on (
    I
    ) the printer.
    The printer attempts to communicate with your network. If it is successful, it fills in your LAN's gateway and subnet values and gets an IP address.
  5. Check to see if an IP address was assigned to the printer. See IP Address (wired or WLAN) for ways to view the IP address.
    If the printer’s IP address is...
    Then...
    0.0.0.0
    or
    000.000.000.000
    The NETWORK light is off or displays steady red. (See Indicator Lights for more information.)
    1. Check the Ethernet connector on the back of the printer. If no light is on or blinking, the Ethernet connection is not active. Check that both ends of the cord are plugged in correctly and that the network port that you are plugging into is active. When this issue is resolved, the printer should connect automatically.
    2. If necessary, configure the following printer settings to set a static IP address and then reset the network. Contact your network administrator for the proper values for your network.
    any other value
    The connection was successful. The NETWORK light displays steady green or yellow, depending on the network. (See Indicator Lights for more information.)
  6. Reset the network (see Reset Network) to allow changes to the network settings to take effect.
