Resolution / Answer

  • In order to send the network configuration to the printer, the printer must be connected and installed on a computer using the USB cable. Once the printer driver will be installed and the printer will be connected with the USB, download and install Zebra Setup Utilities for Windows from here>>
  • Run Zebra Setup Utilities, select the printer and click on “Configure Printer Connectivity”

 
  • Select “Wired”

 
  • Select “Internal Printer Server”


 
  • Select “Static” and type the IP address that must be assigned to the printer, the subnet mask of the network and the default gateway IP. If you don’t know this information, click on the Windows start button, type CMD and open the “Command Prompt”, type ipconfig and press enter.This will show the information about all the network interfaces of your computer, such as the IP address of your computer (192.168.1.21 in the screenshot), the subnet mask and the gateway. Be careful to check the one that is currently in use (Ethernet or Wifi) to connect your computer to the network; the one in use is the only one with an IP address in the Default Gateway.



The IP address assigned to the printer must be x1.x2.x3.x4 with x1.x2.x3 that must be equal to the one of your computer (in this case 192.168.1), while x4 must be a random number included between 2 and 254.
Let’s suppose to select 192.168.1.100, now you must be sure that this ip is not in use, so, in the same Command Prompt, type
Ping 192.168.1.100


 
If you receive an answer like the one in the previous screenshot, it means that the IP is free and can be assigned to the printer, otherwise, if you get a response from the pinged host, you must choose another IP (for example 192.168.1.101).
 
  • Copy all the data in the fields, as indicated in the following screenshot and click on next.
 

 
  • Click on “Finish” to send the data to the printer; if present on the printer, the “data” led will blink.

 
  • Unplug the USB cable and connect the Ethernet one. Your network will automatically assign the IP address to the printer which is now ready to be added to your computer as network printer. To perform this operation, please follow these instructions Read More>>
