We have had great success with the Perle 594M-100 controller. This
controller uses Anynet to connect to the AS/400 through the Ethernet cable,
and you attach the printer to this controller.

You may want to investigate upgrading your entire printer to an IP based
connection. Our maintenance costs on older printers and the cost of the
controller are much higher than the price of a replacement -- especially
since by opening up outside of twinax you can find a lot of heavy duty
high-speed printers previously reserved for the PC world.
