SOURCE: Does IOGEAR GPSU21 work with Vista?

I had a similar problem.

I had original printer install disk to help me with the problem

I went to PSAdmin and changed the DCHP Setting to allow my router to give it a new ip address.

I then added the printer using vista's add printer wizard: I used the add network printer and used the new ip address the PSAdmin gave me: I installed driver off disk, but then chose the one vista had already. I also used the "Print server 1 usb" device when asked which device I had installed.

SOURCE: IoGEAR printserver GPSU21 with VISTA

Yes, the GPSU21 is tested to work with Vista 32 and 64-bit Operating System. The things you need to do is listed below:

1. There's no need for you to install the CD that came with it, if the MFP Utility is already installed in another computer.

2. Get the IP Address of the GPSU21 from the computer that has the MFP Utility installed.

- Open the MFP Utility > locate TCP/IP at the lower portion of this window and click the plus (+) sign. > get the IP Address.

3. After getting the IP Address of it, go to your Windows Vista computer and ping the IP Address (just to make sure that Vista is seeing the Print Server).

- To ping, follow the steps below:
-
- Click the start menu and open the MS DOS Command Promt.
- On the black screen, type this "ping (type the IP Address of the print server): just like this
- C:WINDOWS\Desktop\Scott>ping 192.168.x.x and then hit enter.

4. Once you get ping statistics 4 packet sent; 0% loss. Then the Print Serve is communicating with Vista.

5. On you Windows Vista computer, make sure that the printer is working when directly connected to it. Because there could be a possibility that the printer driver is not properly installed that's why the server is not working.

6. On Vista, go to the Control Panel > Printers > Locate the printer icon (the one that is set as you default printer)

7. Right-click on the printer icon and then select properties > go to Ports tab.

8. Click on Add port button > select Standard TCP/IP > click on "New Port" (beside Cancel)

9. Hit next > type the IP Address of the print server. > Next

10. Click on Custom > Settings button

11. For Protocol: select LPR

12. For the Queue Name: type L1 > Click on OK > Finish.

13. Then under the printer properties, you will see the Standard TCP/IP is selected

14. Hit Apply so that the printer name would appear right next to that port > OK

15. Try printing a test page.

NOTE: After following the steps, you should be able to print using your Vista computer. I configured this print server with Vista several times and it does work with Vista.

SOURCE: Print server Iogear GPSU21 + HP Deskjet F4180 do not print!

The print server is Vista compatible. However, the Deskjet F4180 is not listed as a supported printer.Look at this list: http://iogear.com/files/pdf/GPSU21_Printer_Compatiblity_List_4-20-09.pdf . This print server is not the right one for your printer. You can either try a different print server, a supported printer or directly connect the printer to a computer and make that computer a print server for the rest of your network. The last option will take a bit more work. In Windows, the directly connected computer will need to allow sharing for the printer and the firewall software will need to trust the other machines in the network connect to it. The other computers will only be able to print and not use the other multi-function features. You may need to get additional software drivers to make this work (particularly if one computer uses a 64-bit OS and another has a 32-bit OS).

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: IOGear GPSU21 doesn't work wirelessly with ip4500.

First, you have to make sure that the printer can print directly connected to the computer.

Second, make sure that you can "ping" the print server while it's connected to the router.

If the printer works when connected to the computer and you can ping the print server, then you just need to change the port in the print server utility. It should be set to LP1 and not LPT. The queue name should be set to L1.

Check also the printer port, and be sure that it's set to USB001 or USB002 Virtual Printer Port.

If same problem occur, try to uninstall and re-install the server utility. Use the link below to download the utility for Vista 64-bit OS:

You may refer to the user manual of GPSU21 or call IOGEAR through 866-946-4327.

Thank you and good luck!

Epson standard code is totally different. EPL is Eltron printer language. I've not programmed in it, but there should be a programmers manual out there somewhere.

My Zebra ZDesigner LP2844 feeds a blank label after printing a label. How do I make it stop doing that?


Define your label size correctly. Measure your LABEL exactly, do not include the backing paper or the gap. Calibrate the printer. HOW?
Power off printer. Press and hold the green feed button down and power printer on. Count one, two and release green button. The printer will calibrate and move labels and then print some stuff on the label. Wait until it has comletely stopped. wait another few seconds and the press the feed key once. The printer will print "out of dump". You should now be ready to print again.

WordPerfect prints a blank label after each request


I would think you are printing using a printer driver for the LP2844, not using the lexmark driver. Depending on whose Zebra driver you're using, one setting to check would be to make sure the web sensor is being used for type of media sensor. The names for this setting vary but can usually be found in the printing preferences tab.

Hope this helps a little.....

ZEBRA LP 2844 PRINTING PROBLEM IN USPS SHIPPING ASSISTANT


Are you sure that the page size is wrong, or are you just guessing because of the way that the label is printing? I would uninstall the driver - delete the printer from printers and faxes and remove the driver from Server Properties (in the file drop down in Printers and Faxes). Go to ups.zebra.com/ctp and get the latest driver - you have to have the UPS version of the driver in order to support pass-through printing. Go into your UPS Ship Asst application and make sure that the generic thermal is not checked.

Zebra LP2844 printer prints garbage


Sounds like you might be using a bad driver, or the printer is in dump mode.
Try hitting the green button and see if it says exiting dump.
If still having trouble, inside the printer it tells you that if you are having printing trouble:
  1. turn off the printer
  2. Hold down the feed button
  3. turn on the printer and at the third red flash release the feed button
  4. it will then feed some pagessome info and ask you to hit feed again to exit dump
  5. hit feed again and it will say exiting dump
This process re-reads the label length (so only do it with the labels you want to use in, or it will waste labels until you do it again with those in it) - but I'm suggesting it only because it enters and exits dump mode (which I have read can cause the garbage when you try to print).
