E T H E R N E T S E T U P G U I D E

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-secondinterval may be lost.
