2. Connect your printer to the Internet

Unbox the printer,
connect the cables and turn on the printer as shown in the video below,
make sure a stable connection to the Internet is established.
⚠️ Depending on your IT infrastructure, it might be necessary to register the MAC address of the yellow box (written on the bottom of the box) for Internet access.

⚠️ Only the yellow box needs access to the Internet to receive print jobs. The printer itself does not need to be registered as a local printer and no print drivers need to be installed.

If all the lights of the yellow box are on and only “Status” blinks every 3 seconds, the printer is ready to print. Otherwise, refer to the troubleshooting steps described here.

🎉 Congratulations

The printer is now paired to your eLabNext account and ready to print your labels.

⚠️ In case you get an error message when printing the first label, please check if the print ribbon is well positioned and didn’t fall out during shipping.
