I have an MPS1-T Lantronix Micro Print Server attached to a Microline 520 printer.
The printer started printing very slow so I had the head gap adjusted, tested the cat5 line and finally I swapped the print server with another one in the office.
When I did this, the printer then printed at normal speed. Does the print server need to be replaced or is there a configuration setting that needs to be reset?

A print server should just be a 'through-put' device, and the codes should go fine. ZPL-ZPL2 codes are subequently sent as comms to the printer port. Are you using seria; or parallel input to printer? Yo can capture the codes to a file, and review if they are correct. The file would have to be viewed in a hex editor.(write to a file through the driver) I routinely use different mfg. of print servers for thispurpose if the printer does not have an internal ethernet port. The only problem I have run into is a problem in network where a slow download is enountered.
Check you print driver, see if you can print when the printer is attached directly to the computer USB. If you can, then try it through the print server again, but instead of reinstalling just change the port under the ports section of the print properties to the IP of the print server. Should work fine.
This unit does NOT officially support Samsung printers... but it will allow printing with some. It does NOT support multi-function printers features like scanning for any brand of multi-function printers.
Does your network have a dedicated computer server and the printer is attached to this server or is the printer attached to a dedicated print server device? OR Does a computer on your network shares its printer with other computers on your network? There is insufficient information on how you configured your printer setup for me to give you a proper answer to your problem.
first delte all the programs that u have installed about the print server and the printer.then connect the print server on ur laptop and run the installation .search for the wireless netwrk and connecting to it using the wpa key.After tats done connect the print server to the printer and run the printer installation ,,hope that shud resolve it,,best of luck
Firmware upgrade for your print server could fix your problem or kill your print server.
Try this first: SET UP A STANDARD TCP/IP port.
Set a static ip on the print server. Use that ip address to set up your STANDARD TCP/IP PORT. You can do this on the printers and faxes page.
Right click the default printer then click properties. You have to ADD A NEW PORT.
I have a DLink DPR-1260, and found the configuration to be challenging too. First of all, has it ever worked? If not, you may need to check your router config to ensure that they are both on the same subnet. Typically they come set to 192.168.x.x... if the router is set to 192.168.1.1, the print server is set to 192.168.0.10, and your subnet mask is set to 255.255.255.0... it'll never connect. Make sure that the router and print server are configured to the same subnet... 192.168.1.x for example... and then try it. Let us know if that doesn't resolve your issue, and we'll keep working with you.
If I am correct, you are connecting the print server to the Xerox with a parallel cable. If so, you are printing two different ways when you connect with an ethernet cable. When you connect the printer with an ethernet cable you are probably printing TCP\IP to the IP Address of the NIC Card (in the printer). When you connect with a print server, the print servers IP Address becomes the one you would use as the port for the printer object in Windows Printers & Faxes.
One suggestions would be to update the firmware of the Netgear Wireless print server
Download the firmware for your print server from Netgear's website
Instructions for upgrade are on the site!
you can also try changing the spool settings, Set it to Print directly to printer
RightClick on the printer click on properties and click the advanced tab. Change the spool setting to print directly to printer!!
If this doesn't work kindly let me know!
