The Paxar Monarch 7410 Print Server lets you communicate with Paxar Monarch printers on an 802.11b wireless network. You can use the print server in ad-hoc(peer-to-peer)or infrastructure (access point)

wireless mode. The print server operates at speeds of up to 11 Mbps on any IEEE 802.11b wireless compatible network.

The Paxar Monarch 985x printers can be used on the Paxar Monarch 9876 Mobile Printing Station for portable wireless communication.

In addition, the wireless print server includes a unique dual-modebuilt-inwired Ethernet connection. What does this mean? No more production slowdowns in poor coverage areas; when the RF net is down; or when RF traffic is heavy. Simply move the printer and/or mobile printing station to the nearest Ethernet jack, plug it in, and the print server automatically switches to wired Ethernet mode! Unplug the Ethernet cable and it automatically switches back to RF!

Follow the instructions in this manual to configure the wireless print server for your printer. For more information and software downloads, see Chapter 4, “Troubleshooting.”

S y s t e m R e q u i r e m e n t s

To use the print server for printing from a wireless network, you need an 802.11b wireless network. The wireless network consists of either of the following:

An 802.11b wireless enabled PC printing straight to the printer (Ad-HocorPeer-to-PeerMode).

An 802.11b wireless Access point allowing wireless and wired Ethernet enabled computers to print to the print server (Infrastructure Mode).

Installing the Print Server Hardware 1-1

To configure and print, you need the following:

1. The MAC address from the label of the print server (for example: 004017023F96).

2. The following information from your wireless network administrator:

Wireless Mode (Infrastructure or Ad-Hoc)

The SSID (service set identifier) for your wireless network.

If you are using TCP/IP (recommended for Windows Networks) and are not connected to a DHCP server (for obtaining an IP Address automatically), you need a unique IP Address for the wireless print server (for example:

192.168.1.14) and a subnet mask. If the print server is not on the same IP subnet as the computers you are printing from, you need a subnet mask. A router (default gateway) address is optional.

N e t w o r k P r o t o c o l s S u p p o r t e d

TCP/IP:

LPD/LPR

Raw TCP/IP (port 9100 or any chosen port) NetBIOS over IP (with SMB)

TELNET

WINS

DHCP

The print server comes preinstalled and tested in your printer. Do not plug any cables into the parallel port when using the print server. A printer with this print server cannot use the parallel port. However, the serial port is still active.

When the print server is turned on, it goes through the following startup sequence:

It runs through a set of power-updiagnostics for a few seconds. The green light comes on when the unit is turned on, then the green light turns off. The yellow light comes on solid when an Ethernet link (wired) is established. The red light comes on solid when a wireless link is established. The green light blinks during network activity.
