    10 XP computers each with GK420D USB printer shared out.
    Replaced with single Windows print server (tested 2012R2 and Win7) and 10 x Ethernet connected GK420D printers
    Malformed labels. Text from 1 label appearing on another or barcode from 1 label getting added to next label. Example, if the text on label 1 is "BLUE BOX" and the Text on label 2 is "CAR" the result would be label 1 ok and label 2 text would read "CARE BOX" - the "E BOX" from label 1.
    Label printing has worked 100% for a number of years running XP / USB
    The source of the label does not change (application). Only variable is the interface used: USB or Ethernet.
    GK420G USB is 12Mb so change the network speed to 10/half - still same issue

    Any help much appreciated.

    Hi Andrew, did you get your problem solved?
    As few suggestions:
    1. Clean all your computers of temp files!!!
    2. Check for all new updates on computers.
    3. Updates on the software ( incompatibility software to hardware )
    4. 5 Min Cold restarts on your affected computers.
    6. 5 Min Cold restarts on your affected Printers.
