It's a great little switch from what I've heard. That being said, I've seen several posts over they years about the flex mini not negotiating properly. I'm not ruling out the Xerox device as it's an older network card but at least you know in the future if you have an issue and it's not the cable that you can just drop the speed of the port down.
Thank you for the tips!
I use USW-Flex-Mini so it doesn't have POE out. But good to keep this information for the future. Too bad there is nothing about this in the manual.
Glad you got it working.
I just had a thought about the speed issues. Is your Ubiquiti switch sending POE? If so, turn it off. I've seen older 100Mbps network devices have issues negoating with POE was present. Turning of POE solved some of the issues but not all.
Thank you, TonnyP-Xerox!
I was not able to make it work with 100Mbps speed (either FDX or HDX) but it seems to be working with 10Mbps FDX setting on either port configuration page or via printer setting. This solved my problem.
Hi tonny, the 3225 can only connect to one network at a time. You would select either wired or wireless. If you turned of wireless and can't connect to the wired network, try forcing the Ethernet speed to 100Mbps or 10Mbps.
Setting the Ethernet Speed at the Machine
1. Press the Machine Status button.
2. Press the up/down arrows to select Network and press OK.
3. Enter the Administrator Password using the alphanumerical keypad. The default is 1111.
4. Press the up/down arrows to select Ethernet and press OK.
5. Press the up/down arrows to select Ethernet Speed and press OK.
6. Press the up/down arrows to select one of the following speeds:
• 10 Mbps Half
• 10 Mbps Full
• 100 Mbps Half
• 100 Mbps Full
7. Press OK. The Saved screen displays.
You can also try to set the speed on your UniFi switch by going into the UniFi Network Application, select the Switch, then select Ports, Port Manager, then the port that the device is connected, Scrool down to Port Profile Overide and use the Link Speed drop down to set the speed. If it's set to auto, you can force it to 10Mbps or 100mbps. Do not select 1Gbps connection.
If you are trying to use a fixed IP address, I think it's easier to do that in the UniFi Network Application. On the devices tab, select the device, then setting, hit the radio slider for Fixed IP, Choose the network, and enter the IP address. If you want to print my DNS name, chose the Local DNS record option.
I tried to connect my printer to my network using a network cable and I have issues with that.
When I connect network cable to the printer it's not appering on the network and when I print Configuration Report it states that "Network cable unplugged".
I have a network cable that I verified with both a cable tester as well as another PC. I have verified that switch is working correctly and I tried to connect other devices to the same port and they are working fine.
I have turned off both Wifi connection for the printer as well as Wifi-direct.
I run latest firmware (V3.50.03.07).
I tried to reset all network settings but it didn't help.
I tried to disconnect printer from mains for a long time and connect it without using power surge protection but it didn't help.
I'm unable to ping my printer.
I'm using Ubiquity Unifi network solutiuon but it doesn't report any errors related to the printer.
A side question: in the settings there is an option to provide a static IPv4 address for the printer. If I enter it and connect printer to Wireless network it's the address that my printer will get. How does it work when you have your printer connected to the network both with wireless and wired? You can't have 2 devices with same IP on the network.
