ETHERNET SETUP GUIDE
The Monarch® 7411™ wireless Ethernet Print Server lets you communicate
with a Monarch® 9855® or 9860™ printer on a 10baseT or 100baseTX wired
Ethernet network or on an 802.11b or 802.11g wireless network. The print
server operates in Ad-Hoc (peer-to-peer) mode or infrastructure (access
point) wireless mode. You can also remotely manage and download print
batches, formats, printer configurations, and fonts. MonarchNet2™ software
is available on your printer for a licensing fee. Contact your sales
representative for more information about MonarchNet2, or visit our Web
site (www.paxar.com).
The print server supports multiple network protocols for users with
Telnet/FTP, Microsoft® Windows® 98, 2000, NT®, XP, and Vista™, TCP/IP
(including LPR/LPD, Bootp, DHCP, and HP JetDirect™), Novell® NetWare®
and SNMP. All protocols are simultaneously active.
Note:
When turning on the printer or after sending a ^PR (printer reset)
immediate command, wait at least 30 seconds before sending data
to the print server. Any data sent to the print server before the
30-second interval may be lost.

2.
Type in your printer’s IP address (for example, 192.0.0.192) on your
computer and press Enter/Pause on the printer. If you are not sure of
your printer’s IP address, print a configuration label.
The printer’s display shows the “N” network symbol or the antenna
symbol when the printer is connected and ready to receive data.
Note:
A MonarchNet2 manual is available and included in the licensing
fee. Contact your sales representative for more information.
Printing a Configuration Label
To print a configuration label, press the Test button (if available) on the
back of the Ethernet print server unit.
Note:
Use 6-inch long supply.
If you are using supply that
is shorter than 6 inches long,
temporarily change your
Supply Type in the printer
menu to “continuous” to print
the entire test label. After
printing the test label,
change your supply type to
your previous setting. Some
information may print outside
the label edges of narrow
supply.
