ExtendNet Pocket Printer ESI-2841 - Link Light fails to come on.

I have three ESI2841 Pocket Printers and we can not get the Link light to
come on.  We have checked and double checked the hub and the LAN cables.  The disable option turns the Link status light on and off as selected.

Did you connect it hrough a swirch with a network cable, or to a pc with a crossover? It is not a smart adapter, can't do midi or tx.

Reset ESI 2833 until red light turned green. Network Printer still not responding

Check the IP Address of the 2833. I believe there is a gray button you can depress to print out a configuration sheet. If the wireless modem was also your router, you may have a different IP address range and will need to set the 2833 accordingly.

Does ExtentNet 100x support Zebra printer language ZPL2?

It doesn't support it directly, but it shouldn't prevent it from working. However it might be sending extraneous PJL commands between print jobs (example @PJL -12345X) which could mess up a label. ZPL is basically ASCII, the ExtendNet shouldn't prevent ASCII delivery.

Unable to print Zebra labels on a Zebra 105 SL printer. Sending the label from an I-Series computer through the EntendNet 100x print server to the Zebra printer. Does ExtendNet 100x support Zebra ZPL2...

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.

According to this site it it supports the use of HP's JetAdmin/Web JetAdmin utility which will allow you to configure the IP address as well as other features.

I have an extendnet sx ESI-2811 Print Server. It doesn't work and I can't ping it when directly connected to my laptop via ethernet cable. It must be broken. Any ideas?

Use a crossover cable to connect laptop directly. Does your print server have a static IP address and do you know what it is? If yes, set a static IP on your laptop that is in the same subnet and with the same mask, then you should be able to ping it. If the print server is obtaining an IP by DHCP, you will have to set up and run a DHCP server on the laptop (or connect it with a straight-thru cable to an existing router that offers this service).

Thanks for using FixYa. You’ll need to share the printers. If the printers are different than install all the printer drivers. For detailed description to configure the other two ports to print on the network please follow the step-by-step procedure on the link---
